The Trump Doctrine #2: the War on Expert-Opinion

Commercial advertising media, however this may conflict with the term used in this article, have a responsibility to fulfill. If the public does not get sufficient access to the knowledge of society’s experts, people’s worldview will remain shallow and their opinions on important matter unsubstantiated.

De hoop van het goede voornemen (DUTCH)

Wilders en Rutte en andere leiders van de verdeeldheid zijn geen waaghalzen zoals hun kiezers graag willen geloven. De mensen die ongeacht iedere tegenslag hopen op een betere toekomst zijn dat wel. Mensen die ondanks hun opvoeding proberen de etnische kloof te dichten tussen culturen zijn dat ook, hier is in deze tijden veel moed voor…

The Trump Doctrine #1

I’ve been covering President Donald Trump a lot. There are actually a couple of reasons for this: First, let’s face it, he’s comedy gold.

White and Red, Part 2: the US Election

It’s a perfect storm. Watching reruns of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and South Park from years ago has asserted the impression that the socio-economic challenges of immigration policy, cultural differences, fiscal inequality and geopolitical challenges of national security and foreign policy have come to haunt us. Those who’ve been in the center of…

An Unexpected Presidency: A Look Into The Future Policies Of Hillary Clinton

The US Presidential elections. I felt like writing an article about the Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton for a particular reason. I know this is not the first article dedicated to her persona, her policies, her campaign promises, or her scandals that have been haunting news-consumers since the 1990s. This article is about the socio-political structures…
