The Bible can be read a bit differently…
And quite a bit of what the Bible talks about seems to be what “good” is, going all the way down to “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”-Maffia rule and what it means to experience. When you think about it, what was being said might be interpreted a bit differently, more in accordance with current day scientific standards. Unfortunately, the Bible quite frequently, although it started out with the best of intentions, seems to be written by the blind that mean to explain to the not-blind what it means to see. (And good luck with that.)

Laws allowing a single person to decide what’s law and what isn’t should be scratched!
We have a couple of laws, like the Media-law that states that one of our Ministers by either him- or herself is allowed to set the maximum wage for media-personnel, that even then no one sticks to and is easily surpassed.
Then there’s the law that “Our Minister” decides that people don’t have to adhere to the Cannabis-prohibition in terms of growing Cannabis, meaning that if any Minister decides that someone is allowed to grow Cannabis, even though we have laws that state that it isn’t allowed, this person is allowed to grow Cannabis. This Minister owes no explanation to anyone according to this very same law. That’s a problem.
All autocratic laws are problems. Parliament decides as a whole and these decisions should be fixed within our laws, without every new election allowing parliament to do the exact opposite without further consideration by our full governing body: (People,) Second Chamber, First Chamber, King.
Our main problem in The Netherlands is that every law is the law, yet it isn’t. There is no law and people act as they see fit, even though the majority may very well disagree. This needs to end.

A government shouldn’t be remembered, it should be felt…
Big, bigger, biggest : “Put my name on that building and I will be remembered!” – “I entered a city made of brick and left behind a city made of marble!” a.k.a. a giant high maintenance bathroom. Let’s not be an idiot. Let’s not be a politician. Let’s be human beings.

It does something and you can join, but in both cases no one notices?
How do you influence, without people knowing about anything? The majority knows, we think you’re stupid, and we just want to live our lives. Sorta like that. Idiots.

… but if people refuse to stick to the regulations, kick them out!
People can better themselves through sports, but you need to make sure that sports don’t become a game of politics. It should be a feat of mental and physical prowess. What is strength? First and foremost character, so that’s what we need to test for. People enforcing the law and as such also referees in sport unions need to be mentally healthy and without criminal inclinations, like in education and any other socially responsible position.
