I am highly skeptical. I never expected The Netherlands would ever have these discussions either. But here we are. The only country where I would be shocked to see something like this going on would be Germany. As sad as it is, I think it is the only European country that truly learned the lessons of institutionalized racism. Again, times can change and I might have to eat my words (I truly hope that’s not the case), but I do not see Germany attempting to pass a ban like France.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
