His fields of attention are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality), Medicine, Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism), Oppression and Liberation (of young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQI, foreigners, and anyone else who's dehumanized and exploited), Integrity, Philosophy and Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation).

He always tries to bring something original, and tries to avoid boring you or wasting your time with the obvious.
