Bestaan slechte mensen?

The church gives answers




Beginning of 2022 all councillors of the municipality of Amsterdam received an email with one question: Do bad people exist? Their answers were exhibited on the facade of the Club Paradiso (a former church) a few weeks before the municipal elections.

Right wing



A selection of one answer per party was made for the exhibition. Below is the complete collection of answers. In the end, all parties but two sent me a reply.

All politicians were asked if they agreed their answers would be published. Nobody objected.
