We demand respect!

We demand respect! From our children, from our partner, from our boss, our colleagues, our neighbours, our grocer. But how about giving something? The world is not black or white, not every answer is true or false and not everyone is clear in what they mean.

Try not to judge, be honest and think about what you want. For example: what do you really - literally - mean when you say: 'I want you to love me'?

Don't watch the game tonight, that action movie or that gameshow. In stead: watch this

(Or don't. That's up to you. But give it a try. For me. Please.)

Is it okay to torture?

'A true American patriot should say it's okay to torture people to make the statement that torturing people is wrong.' This statement (not the exact words) was made by Dick Cheney.

Do you agree? And are you willing to say why you agree? In public? Shouldn't America lead the world to see how a true democracy works in the free world? Where people don't have to be afraid they can get accidentally tortured because their name looks like the name of a possible terrorist?

And what of the freedom of speech? Why doesn't that apply to whistleblowers? You tell me.
