Ellul, probably he'd say the problem was with the "ism", any "ism", the cheap "simplism" of it.
But you must remember that I spend a great deal of my time in so-called underdeveloped cultures.
It certainly explains your reactionary, frustrated vibe which distorts your reasoning. You should try to settle where you belong otherwise the alienation gets to you; the resentiment. Something also present in your fiction, now I come to think of it.
I've never gotten the sense you have any practical experience in handling people or property
I do not "handle" anything or anyone at all, nor do I drink milk anymore. But you are clearly still a handler, fondler, grabber, never outgrown the playpen!
It does take a certain amount of 'balls'---real balls, not theoretical Dutch balls---to put oneself on the line and take a stand in a practical sense.
Hitler had real balls too then, I can see how easy your type would fall for suckers like him. The little Nazi is just waiting to crawl out and yell, really, really loud at the world, but for now in the closet of this forum. Idiot!
Fellow party MP demands more democracy in Wilders' party
Geert Wilders' Freedom Party (PVV) has up to now been ruled by the will of a single man: Geert Wilders himself. There are no members, no party congresses, no youth or women's organisations, no party elections. In short, no democracy.
Now, in the run up to the parliamentary elections, prominent Freedom Party MP Hero Brinkman is challenging the party's structure. He believes it is time to create more democracy alongside the freedom.
The MP ... also attracted negative press last year after hitting a barman who refused to serve him. He subsequently admitted having a drink problem*.
