we believe absurdities,
we shall commit atrocities."

- the questions
5. Why I am much hated (in brief)
On the links in this text: The bold and [thus enclosed] links are to English
texts (on my site); the others in Dutch (idem).
This is an English Nederlog, and in fact is my translation of a speech I made
in May of 1988, in the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Amsterdam
(UvA), where I was a student then briefly before taking my M.A. in that subject.
I was an invited speaker, because I was known to have a very special
conversational ability joined with original and independent opinions, and I was
also known as an erstwhile student-leader, who had tried to keep the university
scientific and rational and to prevent postmodernism and politication of
This speech, that consisted only from questions, resulted in my removal from
the university (as regards philosophy) "because of your publicly outspoken
ideas", so wrote the Board of Directors, in a letter to me, and in my being
called "a fascist" and "a terrorist" by my audience, after they lost a
As far as I know, I am the only student to have been removed from any Dutch
"because of your publicly outspoken ideas"
Also, since then - although I had also won a major courtcase against the
University of Amsterdam (after I had taken over from the lawyers) - the Board of
Directors UvA has studiously refused to answer my mails, pay my damages, or
admit of their personal responsibility.
And the Dutch, at least 16 million of them, possibly not counting some
100.000 yearly visitors of my site, don't care, virtually to a man, for most of
them still believe what their TVs, political and religious leaders, schools and
universities told them: Everyone is the equivalent -
"the equal in value" - of anybody else, and to say,
think or feel differently is to be "elitarian", despicable, possibly fascist.
The same kind and rational Dutch minds, in the untold millions, insist on
having the best doctors when they are ill; the best soccer players when they
watch; the finest and most beautiful pop stars and idols; and very likely are
also much in favor of unlimited personal bonuses for personal excellencies if
they were to be the recipients - for nothing makes a typical Dutchman more
passionate, more horny, more eager, more greedy, and more risktaking then
profit, or a whiff of a chance of it. (*)
Meanwhile, in the course of 2008, even the
Dutch parliament, yea verily!, even the government and the
media have come ... to conclude that, yes indeed,
Dutch education is an enormous mess on
all levels, where 18-year olds arrive at Dutch universities - that they have to
finish in 3 years, with M.A.'s sciences like European Studies, Bussiness
Accounting w/minor in sports, or real law degrees, including 2 weeks of Ethics -
not able to spell their own
languages, not able to write tolerably at all,
hardly having read anything (other than popular trash), and
not able to sum 1/3 + 1/4 = x without a calculator.
But I am still hated, ignored, not talked nor written about, and -
I am Dutch
- receive no help whatsoever with the serious disease it is medically admitted I
since 32 years now, and my beloved fellow
Dutchmen neglect to do this, or indeed maintain
my human rights, quite simply because
not doing so would be so much cheaper, so much better
for Dutch bureaucratic (HUGE) pensions, and anyway because it is
me who has ME,
And here follow some of the reasons why. For the moment this is just a translation, with links and an
afterword to follow later, but possibly my Dutch fellowmen may come to read and
understand me, if it is written in English for all to see:
These are the "fascist" and "terrorist" 39 Questions that doomed me in
Holland to dire poverty, consistent bureaucratic discrimination, and continuous
pain and fatigue without any help - and praise the Dutch for their
typically Dutch moral
character and fellow-feeelings! It's a unique race, that much earlier gave
human civilisation the concept of Apartheid, you see...
about the qualities
of education and government
in the Netherlands
ME in Amsterdam, nearly all in Dutch)
I remigrated in 1977 from
Norway (where I could have studied) to the Netherlands and Amsterdam, where I
was born and raised, in order to study philosophy, logic and mathematics.
As it happened, I found myself
in a University of Amsterdam that was "fully democratised" i.e. in the power
of a combination of postmodernistic leftist and feminist students and leftist
members of the staff, who had the majority in the University Parliament, that
ruled the Dutch universities for some 25 years as if the French student
revolution of 1968 had triumphed in one place on earth: The Netherlands, from
1972-1995, when the strongly politicized so-called University Parliaments
(literally: University Soviets = Universiteits-Raden) ruled the Dutch
universities, also with the help of part of their politicized staffs and the
Boards of Directors, usually from the Dutch Labour Party.
What I learned nearly
immediately and heard ad nauseam the next 25 years was this
The University of Amsterdam exists
(according to its democratically approved five-year plans, that governed all
students, all of the staff, and all research):
"To serve the
interests of the trade unions,
the interests of the feminist
and queer movements,
and the interests of the enviromental movement"
"Everybody knows that truth
does not exist."
"Everybody knows that all
morals are purely relative."
"Everybody knows that all men
are of equal value."
The very few who denied or
questioned or even merely doubted this were massively and automatically
called "fascists", and were removed from university, whether professor (Daudt)
or student (me).
In fact - this being Holland, a
nation of collaboratist conformists - hardly anyone protested, and this
because in the social, soft, alternative and literary sciences (so-called), the professors
and lecturers had effectively been mostly nominated by the ruling leftist
political student activists,
and in the 1980-ies anybody - however lazy, however stupid, however
undeserving - could and usually did get an M.A. in these
"sciences" (so-called, indeed) by ....
squatting and screaming leftist and feminist propaganda
in the street at passers by:
And in the end everybody (nearly) got a degree, also
(especially) because the
university got 15.000 dollars from the government for each and every degree
they awarded, wholly regardless of its quality, and also regardless of the
future generations, who were to be educated by a majority of
university-degreed nitwits, liars and know-nothings.
both my ex-wife and I fell il in January 1979 with a disease that 10 years
later turned out to be Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - for which I still
can get no help whatsoever, though it has been admitted by qualified
doctors that I am ill since 32 years, usually very tired and in pain
most of the time: My disease does not fit
the Postmodern Norms and
Values that rule Holland (for really helping me and other
patients - who also are not helped - would cost
real money, which should - of course! - be
reserved to increase the pensions of the scientific staffs and
bureaucracies of the Dutch universities as nominated in the
Postmodern fat 25
years of total decline and ruin of the Dutch universities, as you might see
for yourself, also - or especially - if you are not Dutch, for the Dutch still
react to one who says this - that is: me, mostly,
since 32 years also - as a slanderous fascist and
terrorist, for these are and have been for forty years the
beloved terms of
abuse of any Dutch arrived leftist, ex-leftist, or so-called morally engaged
person: "Whoever disagrees with my fine person must be a fascist, given the
obvious and evident nobility of my intentions".)
And thus it
already having been removed twice from the University of Amsterdam "because of
your public outspoken ideas" and "in spite of you very bad health, which we
take very seriously" (Dutch text of a letter of the Board of Directors writing
this to me), I was asked in 1988, because my linguistic abilities are far
greater than is decent in a postmodern university with students with an
average IQ of 115, whether I would be kind enough to speak to the students and
staff of the philosophy-faculty, where I was known to be both brilliant and -
obviously - dangerous and unreasonable, precisely because I was not a
an academic careerist like the rest. But yes...
evidently I spoke better than the rest, and it could not be denied that I knew
I decided to
read up the 39 questions that follow.
16 academically employed philosophers, and a flock of students, shut me up,
screamed that I was a (foul) "terrorist" and a (dirty) "fascist", both of
which were common terms of endearment for anybody non-conformist at the time
in the University of Amsterdam, where members of the Communist Party could
straight-away become lecturers or professors because of their obvious
personal, intellectual and moral qualities, fully proved and
their party-memberships, as was their evident knowledge of the science they
were to teach. (Obviously, of course.)
those 16 philosophical nincompoops already then had received millions
or more in Dutch taxpayers money (Dutch universities are paid for
taxes; Dutch professors and lectures are state bureaucrats with
guaranteed bureacratical incomes, perks, and pension schemes, and
therefore - thus is The Revolutionary Mind
inclined - were very much craved by
Revolutionary Marxist and Feminist co-students, who indeed usually got what
they craved if only they were Revolutionary, Feminist or Queer enough, and not
too obviously smarter tham most); none of these bureaucratic swines ever
did anything of any intellectual or moral value; and
all of them were disasters in education.
And thus it has been to this day - I wrote
in 1988, and repeat in 2009, in which year I can add that
prominent quasi marxist and quasi feminist careerists I studied with, all
of them with IQs of 30 points less than mine, at least, have been - extra-ordinarily
well-paid - professors and lecturers ever since, in some Dutch university, and
except for the tiny fact that these days they are
mightily offended by anyone even mentioning their pasts (which they
all vomited up, then radically restyled, and
immediately ate again in 1992, namely very
after the Communist Party had disappeared, and very
briefly before the universities
were changed legally, and lost their University Parliaments).
them did ever write anything of any value, whether in science or as a public
all only served their own financial interests and those
of their friends and party-comrades; all
have lied for more than a
generation now about science, civilization, universities, and politics.
And all had
very pleasant lives, were very well taken care of, with much to leave to their
proud children, in terms of houses and riches (in so
far as they speculated well, that is).
it has finally emerged and is at long last publicly admitted since 2008,
the Dutch universities, the Dutch schoolsystem, and Dutch public education
have been effectively destroyed:
Students entering technical universities between ages 18 and 20 can neither
spell nor calculate, not even on the levels of 10-year old children in the
1950ies in any ordinary school did then - and they are made into B.A.s or
M.A.s in such "sciences" as "European Studies" in three years, for
these days all university courses
have been halved; all educational grants quartered; and the
average IQ of the Dutch university graduate is
115 at most since four proud democratic and egalitarian decades, whereas
virtually all of these university graduates are vastly ignorant,
uncivilized, and only capable to spell correctly and make sums with extensive
help of a spell-checker and a visual calculator, with pre-cooked formulas also
(and even then the sums often come out wrong, because they do not understand
what they are about - not at all).
the Dutch still don't care and consider what I have been writing and
saying for 32 years now still as "fascistic" (a Dutchmen who disagrees with
you, especially if he or she was educated at the Universities of Amsterdam,
Tilburg, Nijmegen or Groningen just knows
you are "a fascist", self-evidently), specifically because it is
"elitarian", and because they are proud of being
Masters of Arts in
Psychology or even in Medicine with an IQ of 105 or so, and no decent
knowledge of spelling or arithmetics ("the computer can do it for you
- don't worry, be happy!"),
comprehension whatsoever of science or civilization, but with a guaranteed
position in the highest income brackets
of their deserved academic qualifications".
Of course, there still is a
small minority of gifted and somewhat decently educated Dutchmen, but you will
find them almost only in fields that require real talent or real
effort, such as mathematics, physics or Chinese - though it is very likely,
indeed strongly recommended by Dutch economists, that these posts also will
real soon now all be filled by Indian or Chinese part-time migrants,
who are willing to work for peanuts, also, and that because,
as these Dutch economists say, "whizkids are born
everywhere, and this is just a lot cheaper and more economical".
(The coolie-system, that is, well-beloved by the Dutch from hundreds of years
of Dutch colonialism.)
Here are my
39 Questions read in May 1988, for reasons of which I am
- still, self-evidently! - supposed to be "a
fascist" and "a terrorist" by the Board of Directors, the scientific staff and
the (politically correct, that is to say: everyone who wants to receive a
postmodernistically contentless degree) ever since in the University of
Amsterdam , and was removed from the
university from philosophy, briefly before taking my M.A. in that subject,
that evidently is not fit for the likes of me.
Please note also
- if you fully want to savour the true
moral flavour of the Dutch - that the Board of Directors of the University of Amsterdam refuses to
answer my mails or letters since 21 years now - and for somebody in my
poor and il position, there is, in this present proud postmodern Dutch Democracy, no
money available for any decent legal assistance (beyond the moron level, and even
then these postmodern legal morons, probably educated at the University of
Amsterdam, being true-blooded Real Dutchmen, want per hour what I
may spend in a month).
39 Questions about the qualities
of education and government
in the Netherlands
1. Is it not true that
Wittgenstein says somewhere that it must be possible to write a philosophical
treatise that consists only of questions? (The answer is: Yes.)
2. And is it not true
that the most direct and practical questions about philosophy and, more
generally, science and civilization, are questions about the level and quality
of education in science and philosophy - because the level and qualitity of
civilization in a society strongly depends on the qualities of the education
that society produces?
3. For is it not also
true that a modern society in which education on average is bad; in which the
universities and schools are bad; or where what is taught is not science but
political ideology - is a society that is slowly but surely poisoning itself?
4. Is it not true that
the Holland is in this position since the Mammoetwet and the WUB?
5. And is it not true
that bad or mediocre universities and preparatory schools not only amount to
the slow but sure suicide of civilisation, but also amount to personal
injustice to all students whose birthright to a good education in accordance
with their personal talents has been stolen from them?
6. Is it not true that
in Holland since 20 years quasi-academic diplomas are handed to
quasi-intellectuals in the soft science - quasi-intellectuals, moreover, that
then do occupy real functions, in which they may decide about the
possibilities and chances of their personell and their clients, and are not
quasi but really highly paid for?
7. Is it not true that a
society that rewards, protects and maintains incompetence thereby gets
poisoned - as surely as nature is poisoned by environmental poisoning?
8. And is it not also
true that both kinds of poisoning exist and continue to exist because those
with an interest in them ... have an interest in this? And because it turns
out to be wholly fruitless and ineffective to criticize any civil servant,
however lazy, however impolite, however incompetent, because in Holland
everybody with a public function, whether as a civil servant or a politician,
is protected by similar collaborating most honorable dear colleagues of
precisely the same kind?
9. And is it not also
true that in Holland actual factual personal responsibility does not exist
anymore for any higher political or bureaucratic function i.a. because such
functions are handed out to and divided between personal friends, members of
parliament, incompetent secretaries of state, trade union officials, and other
politically organized parasites, and that one parasite - in the sense of:
morally irresponsible; intellectually incompetent; and motivated by personal
greed for money and status - always protects any other parasite?
10. And is it not also
true that in Holland there is hardly any morally and intellectual competent
politician, governor or high civil servant one can honestly name - with as the
virtually unique exception of a decent, competent and Dutch politician the
hundred years old Drees?
11. Is is not true that
in ALL of the University of Amsterdam there are no enthousiastic, inspiring,
teachers with good Dutch? Is it not true that it is very uncommon in the
University of Amsterdam to find courses and teachers who offer good and clear
written summaries of their courses and teachings?
12. Is it not true that
the vast majortity of the books that are used are simply bad?
13. Is it not true that
almost none of the professors and lecturers have protested the past 20 years
against the politicizing of science and education in the University of
Amsterdam; or against the ruinous state of the courses offered after the B.A.;
or against the systematic giving of advantages, perks and subsidies to the
members of what are in fact very small very fanatic student activists (e.g. by
giving their leaders (M/F) automatical academic jobs and advantages as a
matter of course?).
14. Is it not true that
in the University of Amsterdam the majority of the scientific staff, at least
in the social and literary faculties, are intellectually hardly qualified; do
not do any scientific research of high quality; and in fact are hardly
interested in their trade and proportionally concerned with their salaries?
15. Is it not also true
that in the University of Amsterdam, certainly in the so-called social and
literary sciences, and because of the ruins made of pre-university
school-education, the vast majority of the students is not qualified for and
in any case hardly interested in great parts of the science they are supposed
to study, but only partake of because they desire to make a career with an
M.A. degree of some kind?
16. Is it not true that
the professors and lecturers in the university have been saying since 20 years
that their personal qualities cannot be assessed objectively?
17. And is it not true
that they do not say so because this is true, but in order to prevent that
their total lack of relevant qualities comes to light?
18. For isn't it true
that only were there are no qualities these qualities cannot be assessed?
19. Is it not true that
since 20 years a large amount of the education in the social and literary
faculties in the Dutch universities in fact are political ideology, and
political prejudice presented as if it were real science?
20. Is it not also true
that since 20 years in many faculties highly paid professors and lectures have
ben claiming - as I have heard many tens of times in the faculties of
philosophy and of psychology - that "everybody knows that truth does not
exist"; that "objective science is an illusion"; and that "rational thinking
is not morally justified"?
21. Is it not true that
these are totalitarian ideas, that were formulated and propounded especially
to help leftist politicking, but that these can as well serve to argue that
it is not true that 6 million jews were murdered in the Second World War, or
that Adolf Hitler was a great humanitarian genius - for "everybody knows that
truth does not exist"; that "objective science is an illusion"; and that
"(human) qualities cannot be assessed objectively"?
22. Is it not true that
it has been now for 20 years the actual priority in the University of
Amsterdam in the social and literary faculties to propound and teach this
manner of totalitarian political ideology - indeed in fact in aid of the
leftist, so-called humanitarian, aims and theories, but just as well capable
of being used for any other kind of totalitarian delusion?
23. Is it not true that
IF the - always cowardly, always dishonest, always hypocritical - Dutch
politicians or bureaucrats raise a tip of the veil that covers the Augian
stables they maintain, this only happens when they leave office - if they
already have been effectively promoted to an even better -paying veiled Augian
stable, the salary of which also does not stink at all... until the next
24. And is it not true
that this dedicated silence explains a lot about collaboration in the Second
25. Is it not true that
part of the reason for what is really the ruins that are the University of
Amsterdam, once an autonomous university, dedicated to science and
civilisation, but now degenerated to a pretentious, sick n-th rate
college-like institution, is that this has been caused by 20 years of
incompetent Boards of Directors - persons who were mostly Dutch Labour
politicos without the least real interest in science or education, who were in
fact (whatever their hypocritical public stances about their motives) mainly
motivated by greed for money and power?
26. Is it not true that
at least during the last 15 years there has been no proper financial reporting
whatsoever in the University of Amsterdam?
27. Is it not true that
incompetent members of the Board of Directors, who have been diagnosed as such
by the University Parliament, have been pensioned off with honors and nearly a
million in bonus?
28. Is it not true that
in the period 1980-1985 60 million guilders have "disappeared" (45 million in
the university itself, 15 million in the foundation that was supposed to
obtain students houses for the money?)
29. Is it not true that
this money disappeared because the Board of Directors has been incompetent the
last 20 years; because there has not been any effective personal
responsibility whatsoever; and because everyone knows that the Ministry of
Education anyway will pump half a billion into the university each year?
30. Is it not true that
in the University of Amsterdam the real subject is not the public hypocritical
poses about education or indeed political ideology, but that this is in fact
nothing else but on moral and intellectual incompetence based hyporcisies,
greed and parasitism?
31. Is it not true that
the once again upcoming elections for the University Parliament are
exclusively and only a means to get the ASVA- and PP-fractions elected and to
give the Board of Directors a quasi-democratical legitimation of their
enduring position of power and their continuous incompetence and parasitism?
32. Is is not true that
in the University of Amsterdam one can only elect the one or the other
power-greedy parasite without the least real interest in science or education,
who is moved only by political fanaticism or by monetary greed and an easy
33. Is is not true that
a great part of the non-academic staff of the university, compared with what
is usual in ordinary firms, hardly works at all?
34. Is is not true that
a great part of the leftist political ideas that have been so popular in the
University of Amsterdam were especially popular NOT because their proponents
had any real ethical motivation, but only because it provided all concerned,
that is everyone with a job in the University of Amsterdam, almost totally
unrestricted freedom to do nothing and to have no personal responsibility at
all - because according to these leftist political ideas "everybody is equal"
while "all decisions must be fully democratised"?
35. And was this - apart from all the beautiful talk - in practice
nothing but an open and standing invitation plus legitimation of parasitism,
doing nothing at all, behaving shoddily, being lazy, talking hypocritically,
and a protection of political ideology masquerading as if it were real science
fit for being taught in the
36. Is it not true that
science is both the cultural and economical foundation of our society, because
we all live and eat thanks to the technologies we owe to centuries of
scientific research, and because scientific methods of reasoning are our only
means to adequately explain and understand reality, and to rationally
criticize nonsensical political ideologies, derailed religious faiths, and
other forms of superstition?
37. Is it not true that
the quality of our economy, and the welfare we can expect from it, is directly
propportional to the quality of scientific education - because our economy is
based on scientific technologies?
38. And is it not true
that the quality of our civilisation, and the welfare and wellbeing - humane
attitudes, tolerance, in short: reasonable action based on realisable plans -
is directly proportional to the quality of the scientific educational
institutions - because our civilisation is based on norms of rational
reasoning and reasonable action that are for the most part scientific or owing
to scientific norms and principles?
39. And is it not true
that science and good scientific education, rational thinking and reasonable
acting, are of the greatest importance for mankind and for human civilisation
- and that in the University of Amsterdam science and the education in science
have been ruined and corrupted; rational thinking has been trivialized and
destroyed; and reasonable acting exists only in a hypocritical travesty?
4. 39 Questions - afterwards
39 Questions about the qualities of education and government in the
Netherlands have been written in May 1988 and
have been read to a congregation of professors and lecturers of the Faculty of
Philosophy in the University of Amsterdam, who had invited me as a speaker
"because you speak so well" (not knowing what I was going to say, so well).
These Questions have been handed out
later to quite a lot of Dutch professors and lecturers, and at least five times to
the Board of Directors of the University of Amsterdam -
who removed me in
August 1988 from the study of philosophy, just before taking my M.A. degree in
the subject, mostly because of the above.
And indeed, that Board of Directors
was nearly completely the same as the one that had made "disappear" 60 million
guilders from the accountings of the University, quite unaccountably so, for
to this day - September 22, 2009 - nobody ever took the trouble to find
out who stole it, nor indeed to find out anything about
the 25 years of
wouldbe revolutionary Communist and Socialist freaking out of the University
of Amsterdam - that in fact, and from the beginning, had one purpose
and one purpose only: To give as many
academical jobs to as many members of the communist and socialist parties as
had found their ways into the University of Amsterdam, to set up
these noble revolutionaries for life, as combined bureaucrats, civil
servants and would-be professors of some fake postmodern social or literary
science made up of intellectual baloney and pretentious hypocritical moral
trash. (For - the naive non-Dutch should know: Professors and lecturers in
Dutch universities are normally bureaucrats i.e. civil servants, and have once
tenured - say at 25 - an unassailable position for life, whatever they fail to
do in science, as long as they do not rape a secretary in public, or talk to
the papers about their love for cocaine.)
In fact, the justification schema runs
and ran thus since 1972:
help The Poor And Underprivileged; WE
support the repressed queers, blacks and females; WE
have the best of intentions and the noblest of ages - so YOU should
shut up with any criticism... and mind you, if you don't,
we call you a dirty fascist and a stinking terrorist, and throw you out of the
And thus it happened to me -
and to no one else, not because no one else could see what I saw at the
time, but because no one else had my qualities of mind or character, for
indeed my intellect is uncommonly brilliant (as indeed nobody who met me in
the university ever denied) and indeed unlike
ALL the stinking, lying, posing, intrigueing, lying would-be
"Marxist", "Socialist", "Leftist" "Revolutionairies" that ruined the Dutch
Universities since 1968, only for their own financial profits and social
status, purely from greed and ill will, I hail from a
truly marxist truly heroic family, with a mother, father and grandfather in
the Dutch Communist Resistance, and a father and grandfather condemned as
political terrorists, to concentration-camp punishments, in
which my my grandfather also was murdered.
ALL of my hypocritical generation I gave up Marxism etc. when I was
20, in 1970 - indeed because I do have a very good mind and I
CHOSE to use it to read and think with for myself, instead of
abuse it to make a career either in Dutch politics or as one of thousands of
lying, defrauding, phoney and false so-called university professors and
lecturers in some sick postmodern quasi-science in Holland, that actually is a
mere swindle, an utter con-game and a very
dirty fraud, that also is known to be such
by its thousands upon thousands of perpetrators, who still are
professors or lecturers in Holland, if they have not been pensioned off with
the best bureaucratic pensions, if they are not still writing in the quality
papers I cannot get any letter published in,"because
of your publicly outspoken ideas", and still lying through their
teeth about their own o so very noble motives and intentions, though it
is also true that the whole morally to high heaven stinking lot
restyled themselves - mostly within half a year, also with stunning
impertinence and fraudulence - into "neo-conservatives", "social centrists",
or "practicing humanists" and what not, while most of the very same former
Marxist Revolutionary Leftist these days politically support ... the Party for
Animal Rights, for now the Rights of Animals
for A Fair And Decent Worthwhile Life are paramount in their scales of values,
now their personal "rights" have rewarded so richly.
That is: If you believe them -
but actually this lot of moral sickos and intellectual dombos that are the
current academic Dutch elite, and have been so these
past forty years, are worse and more fraudulent and simply
dirtier - morally
lousier and FAR more despicable - and also
FAR more cowardly than their counterparts in Hitler's Germany
and Stalin's Russia, who also mostly corroborated, and also were
invariably hypocritical about their motives: For these at least could plead
totalitarianism, dictatorship, and physical or mortal danger to themselves or
their families if they dared to dissent.
By contrast, the Dutch academics were
completely free to do and say and think as
they please(d) these last forty years, and they freely, deliberately, and for
money, pleeased to lie, betray, intrigue, and collaborate for personal power
and personal ease, meanwhile betraying all of science, all of modern
civilisation, all of their students, and all of the now arrived totally mis-
and non-educated later generations, just to have money for themselves while
they lived, and to have power and status for themselves, and all by reason of
their utter and total moral and intellectual incompetence, and their enormous
willlingness to lie and conform, even if the ony
one thing necessary not to be a phoney and a fraud and a thief was to have
just a little individual character and some spine of one's own.
Notes to 39 Questions
 Not to puzzle you unduly: It was meant in the sense
that all remaining questions, rationally and reasonably speaking, must be
"Yes" - and indeed Wittgenstein did ask such a question.
were the laws of 1965 and 1972 that respectively moronified the schools and
the universities, by effectively halving the standards and the contents. And
please note, non-Dutch readers, that then and there, as indeed now, the vast
majority of the Dutch found this highly desirable, because they hold that (1)
all are equal (2) neither truth nor morals exist, other than relatively
speaking and (3) it would be most unfair to most if most cannot get a
university-degree AND the type of job and pay this entitles one too, "as an
academically educated citizen".
Willem Drees had become 100 that year, and indeed he was the leader of the
Dutch Labour Party at the time this was not a set of corrupt and incompetent
careerists. (Like Churchill, there is fair criticism of Drees possible and
indeed true, but again like Churchill, the man evidently ranked above his
contemporaries in politics, morally and intellectually, whatever his
 One could
become a Master of Philosophy in my time by partially reading the beginning of
