Gevangen in je tijdgeest (12) – Marteling in het ‘vrije’ westen

Zo herkenbaar

Dossier XXI

Voordat ik begin met mijn blog, wijs ik erop dat de ‘marteling‘  waarover ik schrijf in deze bijdrage niet in verhouding staat met de vele martelingen elders in de wereld. Onthoofdingen door IS, waterboarding op Guantanamo Bay, gruweldaden door Afrikaanse dictators, het egocentrische China: wij Nederlanders mogen blij zijn dat we nog in betrekkelijke vrijheid leven in ons kleine landje. Ik schrijf nadrukkelijk nog, omdat we na decennia van vrijheid een kentering zien in het denken over de ander.

Over de medemens.

Europa heeft moeite om haar medemenselijkheid te tonen jegens de vele vluchtelingen die haar continent binnen willen komen, omdat hun land vanwege oorlog, armoede en klimaatverandering niet leefbaar meer is. In de Verenigde Staten blijkt racisme weer gruwelijke vormen aan te nemen. In Duitsland pissen neo-nazi’s over migranten (letterlijk), in Griekenland is men de wanhoop nabij vanwege een gebrek aan financiële middelen, de financiële sector…

‘Rise of the Robots’ and the threat of a jobless future


e prospect of machines stealing our jobs has perturbed and enraged humans for at least 200 years. The Luddites hit the alarm bell, and not without reason: The automation of weaving and spinning technology displaced an entire class of skilled artisans. But ever since, economists and historians have dismissed the Luddites as jokes, because the forces of industrialization they decried ended up making the world a far richer and more comfortable place.
