The disappearance of privacy and the now as well in the Netherlands announced burqa ban, are part of the same trend of openness. Openness is the new norm. You don’t have anything to hide, right? So why make a fuss about privacy? The question is which face coverage will be next. The beard? The motorcycle helmet? Or does this decision have nothing to do with security after all, and everything with xenophobia? Some people see in the burqa the concealing of your identity. For others, it means the expression of their identity. What do we choose ultimately? A neutral public space? Neutrality and objectivity don’t exist. Or do we choose a public space which again is a real public space. Where different manifestations, political / religious / sexual orientation can be openly expressed?

    I think the basic thing is respect and love for others. If these principles are adhered to, there would be no problems with others in the first place.
