Greed and graduation.
By increasing materialism, expressing in the isolation associated with greed and a precarious self-defence system to protect unregulated individualism, one of the remnants of tolerant Holland, the University of Amsterdam, was seen to have complied with a ratrace of numbers, quite symbolically.
An analogy has been given between this phenomenon and the Treaty of Amsterdam, the latter having made possible the European Monetary Union and its Euro Currency.
One day somebody was expulsed from the University (Mensa) of Amsterdam.
This was justified by tolerance.
Various people had confided him they frequented a prostitute in the University district, internationally known as the Red Light District of Amsterdam, but being tolerant, he still had to admit he wouldn't and was found placing himself above the others, and this again was taken as a form of discrimination.
This shows the nature of tolerance and democracy, being rationalized. The same procedure can often be seen in politics and society at large. We don't need to derive a moralistic position from this; we can simply observe the pattern of manipulation and the so-called emanicipation of a majority of people.
Many wasted lives are the results of alienation. Our world is seen by measures of official education and ongoing time, divided by examinations that, once succesfully concluded, compulsively carry on in every day life in many variations on a theme and increasingly complex compartments, to the fulfillment of an Apartheid system, not consisting of two or three groups, but as many as there are single individuals or members of a nation.
This Apartheid is enforced by placing people in sections of society on the basis of greed and graduation.
One has sought to escape suffocation in ever larger structures, which are however still conditioned by the same marks.
This is more or less how Apartheid became Globalization.
