Instead of administrating nearly all the changes I made
to the site, which I did - mostly, not always perfectly - from 1996 to
2009 - I started writing summaries, that I anyway had made since 2008
or so for Nederlog. They are here, indeed with the name the files had
when they still administrated almost all changes rather than summarize
the most important ones:
keep the old filename is to maintain links I made in earlier years.
Today I wrote the summaries for September - where it turns out I still
have to redo September 18, which I probably will have done by tomorrow.
Here they are, with an endnote about
some other changes.
- Sep 30: me+ME: Corrupt Dutch Supreme Court | More
about Rich van Konynenburg | My eyes and M.E.: A little more about Rich van Konynenburg, and a bit about the despicable and sickening Dutch Supreme Court of 1940-1945, that collaborated with the Nazi occupiers, as did most Dutch judges, some
of which indeed convicted by father and
grandfather to concentration camp prisonment
This is again typical for
Dutch morality, for which see (I say it
again) "The UnDutchables"
- and I quote myself:
My parents were
members of the Dutch Communist Resistance in WW II, and because of that
my father and grandfather were convicted to concentration camp
punishment, that my father survived after more than 3 1/2 years of
German concentration camps, as a political prisoner, while his father
died from the maltreatment, starvation and forced labor.
the things my father was very bitter about was that he and his
father (also arrested, also convicted - and my father's story, in his
own words, translated by me into English, is under this
link) were convicted by Dutch
judges in a Dutch court, in 1941, and namely as "political
has turned out - as written up in a book that was first
published in the fall of 2011, that is over 65 years after WW II
ended: Corjo Jansen en
Derk Venema, "The
Court and the Second World War" (in Dutch), Boom, Amsterdam, 2011
- that all of
Supreme Court in WW II was corrupt, and collaborated with the
Nazis, except for one man, its president, who was Jewish or of
- Sep 26:
Rick van Konynenburg dies
| Three excellent
books about philosophy | My eyes and M.E.
: Dr. Rick van Konynenburg was
an an American Ph.D. in electric engineering (an intellectually far more demanding study than
psychiatry), who had been working for 16 years for people with ME/CFS and had developed his own biochemical theory to
account for it, which is interesting and plausible. I provide links, and also write about
three excellent books about philosophy.
- Sep 22: me+ME: Excellent article by Sonia Poulton |
ERV | Maartensz | The sadism link | My eyes and M.E. : This is
about an Excellent article about ME/CFS in
Daily Mail by the British journalist Sonia Poulton, with quite a few
references thrown in to things
I wrote related to ME/ÇFS, and other related matters, such as my
diagnosis that the psychiatrists who diagnose ME/CFS patients as
mentally ill are
themselves either mentally ill or sadists, which is what I really
and I have the degrees and knowledge to make such diagnoses
- and I do not slander millions of ill people to make a living
of them. Besides, there are far more medical doctors who are not
psychiatrists who insist that
the disease is real, than there are psychiatric
pseuodscientists and degenerates who insist
the disease are not real,
and have the ear of the governments and health insurances, who rather
the money to give it to bank managers or live well on
themselves, than help ill people.
- Sep 20: me+ME:
Lipkin and Racaniello talk | George Carlin talks | My eyes and M.E.: This is about the result
of the Lipkin + study, that definitely killed the hypothesis of XMRV, also according to its originators drs. Mikovits and Ruscetti, and
reports on an interesting - recorded - talk between professors Racaniello and Lipkin. I also throw in some nice Carlin links, such a s good 45 minute
interview with him, not long before he died.
- Sep 18: XMRV
is dead | Tuller in NYT | What is the yield?
This is my response to the outcome of the Lipkin + study.
The present version has been edited
earlier versions that did not display well. I think the text is the
same as was, but the table about M.E. is a better version than was in
the original, though most items are the same.
- Sep 17: DSM-5
& psychiatry | Ubuntu | eye problems | Carlin and voting: A bit more about dr. Szasz and what is wrong with psychiatry - and I quote myself,
because it is true, important and not known to the many victims and dupes of psychiatrists and
The point I want to make
present section is that especially psychiatrists and psychologists, who
are, in terms of years and level of education the highest trained a,ong
the psychotherapists, and who tend to pretend that they have a level of
expertise, knowledge and insight that ordinary people - "layman" -
lack, are almost all of them bulllshitting if
Here are some of my
reasons - and
as it happens my academic degrees are in philosophy and psychology, so
indeed I am not speaking in ignorance:
NONE of the
professionals, and NONE of the psychiatrists is able to give anything
like rational, empirically supported, scientific answers to the
following questions (and there are quite a few more that are relevant
that they rarely can answer, about epistemology, statistics,
probability, logic and science, for example, but these are too
technical to consider here and now):
(1) What is a human
human self, a human character?
(2) What is consciousness, and why do we have it?
(3) How does the brain generate commonsense experiences?
(4) Do we all experience similar things in similar circumstances?
(5) What is meaning and why and how can we communicate with language?
ALL of the psychotherapeutical
professionals, and ALL of the psychiatrists presuppose SOME sort of
answers to ALL of these questions, indeed like anyone else who can
function in a human society without creating major problems for others
- but ALL of the professionals mentioned bullshit you or delude
themselves if they pretend to be able to answer these questions, other
than by what is mostly faith or illusion, if indeed not intentional
bullshit meant to make you pay.
There also is some on Ubuntu, and some of George Carlin's
and my reasons not to to vote.
- Sep 16: My
eyes, M.E. and internet | Dr Thomas Szasz died: This
explains why I can use the
internet with such eyes as I have, namely thanks to the possibilities offered by ǴNU/Linux/Ubuntu (as seems the fairest
name to me, in view of those who made it), which are not existent
in MS Windows, and is about dr. Thomas
Szasz, who died the week this was written, who was a very courageous and intelligent man, who dared to oppose the dominant
tendencies in psychiatry, while being himself a psychiatrist and a professor in it.
- Sep 15: My
eyes | Black book | Schopenhauer
against the scribblers: This
is about my problems in Holland and the Dutch
national character - for
which see the excellent, honest and true The UnDutchables - and my liking of Schopenhauer. Here is the bit of him I quote:
the pathetic commonplace heads with which the world is crammed really
lack are two closely related faculties: that of forming judgements and
that of producing ideas of their own. Both these are lacking to a
which he who is not one of them cannot really conceive, so that he
cannot easily conceive the dolefulness of their existence. It is this
deficiency, however, which explains one one hand the poverty of the
scribbling which in all nations passes itself off to its comtemporaries
as their literature, and on the other the fate that overtakes true and
genuine man who appear among such people. All genuine thought and art
is to a certain extent an attempt to put big heads on small people: so
it is no wonder the attempt does not always come off. For a writer to
afford enjoyment always demands a certain harmony
between his way of thinking and that of the reader; and the enjoyment
will be the greater the more perfect the harmony is: so that a great
mind will fully and completely only another great mind. It is for this
reason that bad or mediocre writers excite disgust and revulsion in
thinking heads: and even conversation with most people has the same
effect - one is conscious of the inadequacy and disharmony every step
of the way."

- Sep 14: B12
Protocol | Psychologist with M.E. |
Statistics and medicine: I do have an M.A. in psychology, as does my ex-wife, and we both fell ill with EBV after
four months of studying in
the first year of our university studies, on grants and loans. I
explain why I deny the sadistic attributions by psychiatrist - if I would have been a sadist, I would have been a shrink - and also explain why I don't believe much of
medical statistics (before reading about
and Paxil, that illustrates my case).
- Sep 12: M.E.
+ my eyes | Stem wijzer: This is
one of the very few Dutch pieces
I wrote since 2009, and is a satire on
voting and Dutch
democracy, which I don't believe in: Dutch political parties seem to
me to be more like self-selecting gangs of psychopathic careerists than like the noble servants of the people they
present themselves as, to a
the Dutch educational system has
- Sep 11: On
my eyes | The Nuremberg Interviews: Having mentioned yesterday
father and grandfather were
convicted political terrorist, being convicted in 1941, by
Dutch judges, who collaborated with the
Dutch Nazi occupiers of Holland, as did all of the Dutch Supreme Court under Nazi occupation, except for its
president, who was fired because he was
Jewish, I explain something about good and bad
and about an interesting book of interviews with
- Sep 9: From
the Notebooks of MM.
This is quoted
from my own Notebooks (copy/paste is easier than writing). There
is about 20 MB more of similar notes
on my hard disk,
and this is a fair selection.
- Sep 9: Nederlog
gets continued in The Black Notebook
in November 2012 I return to Nederlog, because my eyes
are less bad and - especially -
because I found a way to edit my files
in a way that my eyes permit, without having to look at white or light background, with Seamonkey's Composer.
Meanwhile, I did write entries
in something I first called The Black
then NOTEBOOK, in a format that was
friendlier on my eyes, and these have now all been incorporated again in Nederlog.
Endnote: There are some further changes
I do not
yet know whether I maintain all of these changes.
