1. Crisis: 201 and further 
About ME/CFS


As the title says, this is nr 249 in the series about the crisis, that I started on Sep 1 2008, in Dutch, and continued in Dutch until nr 82. This is the new index file for the files that I wrote about the crisis. The first index file is here, and the second one here. The reason for a new file is that the former grew big and untractable.

1. Crisis: Index file: 201 and further

This continues the following index of files in the crisis series
that was started on Sep 1, 2008 and contains 200 files.

The present file is the continuation and starts with 201 for June 21, 2013.

Also, because the previous index got two times destroyed by the disappearance of 90 items I have been forced to partially redo them on December 23, 2013. And
since I had taken some extra items, that I did write, but did not give the "Crisis" prefix in the crisis series, I had to add them to item 226, that accordingly has
226.A - 226.K.

All in all: Nothing was added except that the two index files were changed, and
10 more files were added to the index, and no other file in the crisis series was deleted or changed by me.

Finally, the reason that since June 10, 2013 some 170 files were added is that
on that date I became aware of Edward Snowden, while the reason that few files were added in 2010 and 2011 is that I mostly wrote about ME/CFS those years,
propelled by the illusion a psychologist could make a difference in a world owned by anonymous meatheads. (I have been cured of that illusion, to the extent that I now think that the intellectual qualities of the average anonymous patient with ME/CFS, which is exactly zilch, is an important reason for the continued lack of funds. And yes, there also are other reasons.)

This file is updated until February 6, 2014.

I'll probably stop trying to maintain this index because doing so is sheer torture because of the many bugs in KompoZer that is the only WYSIWYG editor on Ubuntu, and has been bugged extremely since at least three years now: It does not even keep the cursor position in a file (!!); it doesn't keep the right files attached to its keys; and it doesn't copy well: the same file can end up ten times anywhere, before it ends up where it should - and I am using this shit now for 3 years because there isn't anything better on Linux.

In any case, this was the last for this file.


[1] Here it is necessary to insist, with Aristotle, that the governors do not rule, or at least, should not rule: The laws rule, and the government, if good, is part of its executive power. Here I quote Aristotle from my More on stupidity, the rule of law, and Glenn Greenwald:
It is more proper that law should govern than any one of the citizens: upon the same principle, if it is advantageous to place the supreme power in some particular persons, they should be appointed to be only guardians, and the servants of the laws.
(And I note the whole file I quote from is quite pertinent.)
