Amazing. Last Thursday, a very warm day here in the Netherlands: many hundreds came to a meeting of a Dutch political party with English speaking guests only! And on top of that: the meeting was about a very important but depressing subject: the role of the Communist Party of China in the world. The organising… Continue reading Marxism was never crushed
Short video with some quotes from the marvelous biography of the greatest statesman ever: Winston Churchill, by William Manchester and Paul Reid.Concluding:Nowadays civilization is threatened in a very different way but in my opinion also in an even more worrying and sinister way than 80 years ago.Serious politicians should more frequently ask themselves: What Did… Continue reading Less politicians, more statesmen
The reason for this article is twofold: a remarkable article on a strange Dutch website and an atypical reaction under an earlier article of mine about ‘climate denier’ as badge of honor.

Last week I posted a short video in which I provided a new, rigid heptagonal with linen. I was almost inappropriately pleased with the result: firm, flat, smooth, soft and with white gesso. I’m going to use it for a special portrait of George Orwell. The white gave me the idea to make the background… Continue reading An old and a new tribute
