Veganism

Veganism is the easy solution for many moral problems! Sustainable development starts with a plant based diet, because a carnistic diet has a much larger unsustainable ecological footprint. If we agree that is in immoral to unnecessary harm others, then it automatically follows that we should be vegans. In others words: veganism is not a hobby, but a moral duty. Floris strives to make Utrecht University the first vegan university in the world. And to make the Netherlands the first vegan only society in the world, as a stepping stone towards a more ethical and thus vegan world.

Atheïsm

Philosophy is about critically reflecting on arguments of moral and truth claims. It turns out that none of the arguments in favor of any god whatsoever can stand rational scrutiny. Therefore, philosophy leads to atheism. In the world of today despite modern science and technology still has tremendous influence on the lives of billions of people. And religion has a strong tendency to infringe upon individual liberty. Much of religion in the world is misogynic and homophobic. A world without religion is worthwhile to strive for. A world without religion is a better place.

Feminism

A feminist is anyone who believes that women and men have equal moral standing and equal moral rights. A large part of women in the world a in bondage by their culture, tradition, political system – or, for short: by men. People in the free and emancipated world should not turn a blind eye to women who not enjoy these freedoms. We should try to help all women to develop their capabilities and to protect and provide individual freedom to all women on the planet. We should not give in to relativistic claims that turn a blind eye to victims.
