About this website

First, let me say that all I have written in the course of my life is normally in Dutch language.  It happens to be, however, that the following texts are to a large extend in French, whereas a few ones only are in English.  Therefore I at least wanted to write this introduction in what in our days is the main international language.

But what is this website about?

It is about 1) spirituality, 2) war resistance, 3) world federalism, 4) violations of fundamental rights by radiation weapons and or by chemical and biological weapons, 5) the Belgian question, 6) the Islamic question, 7) «Flashes Afterwards » (not in normal prose), 8) a profile of myself ("Who is this?"), 9) my old long playings, 10) pictures showing the undersigned, 11) A few persons whose life and work deeply spoke to me” (with comments in Dutch and English).


1) Spirituality
What you find here, is the French version of a ”meditation booklet” I composed in 1977, in Dutch and French.  In 2011 I typed the texts on the computer in the way I had rearranged them in 1995. For  several reasons which I partly explain in the introduction, I preferred to rearrange the French issue first, and after that I found no time to tackle the other one as well.

The ”booklet” contains quotations of mystics from all big civilisations and of all times.  In the introduction I try to shortly formulate my own approach to what you could call the mystical ineffable.

2) War Resistance
At the age of eighteen already my possibilities had become utterly limited due to life ruining health trouble.  Nonetheless, since the beginning of 1962, I have been active as a war resister and a world federalist.  Unfortunately it came to an evil breaking point in 1978 on the level of the Belgian Dutch speaking section of the War Resisters’ International, i.e. the INTERNATIONALE VAN OORLOGSTEGENSTANDERS (IOT), as well as on the level of BURGERDIENST VOOR DE JEUGD (BDJ) = Civil Service for Youth, a committee working around the law for conscientious objectors, practically an emanation of the IOT.  What I have done in the framework of these associations and how they were usurped by newcomers in the seventies : this I explain in a few following texts.  I also add a dissertation about the influences of the Eastern Bloc on Western peace movements.  (Lots and lots of other texts of mine as a war resister or a world federalist are typewritten or printed, but I cannot scan them all.)

- Letter in English in which I try to shortly explain what happened on the level of the Internationale van Oorlogstegenstanders (section of the War Resisters' International)

- IOT = Internationale van Oorlogstegenstanders (section of the War Resisters’ International) : "How It Came To Be".

- « Note sur mon rôle dans nos mouvements pour la paix »

(Note about my role in our peace movements)

N.B. Some of these reports are written in French in order to pass them a) to French speaking Belgians who read neither Dutch nor English, b) secretariats of international movements still admitting French as a medium of communication.

- « Quand le fragrant mensonge devient naturel : Biesemans et compagnie »

(Exposure of the flagrant lies of Sam Biesemans about the foundation of the Burgerdienst voor de Jeugd = Civil Service for Youth)

(This document, from 2006, is one of the several rights to reply I vainly have sent to the paper of the Internationale van Oorlogstegenstanders, which the usurpers of the seventies had stolen from us like all the other means of our association.)

- « On the use by us of the letter head of the Internationale van Oorlogstegenstanders (IOT) »

- « Over het begrip “Vlaams” » + « Sur la notion de “flamand » (What does the notion of “Flemish” apply to?)

I could not scan all the documents I am referring to in that document.  However I typed the following text :

- « Ten geleide » = preface in Dutch (translated by me into French) of Frans Baudoin to the book« Kunst in Vlaanderen » = "L’art en Flandre” (Art in Flanders)

Here you find a reaction of mine to a book written by Wim Van Rooy : « De malaise van de multiculturaliteit » = "The Crisis Of Multicultural Society")
