    Sybe Schaap is the son of a pioneer farmer from the North East polder, born in Lemmer. Because of his fathers sudden death he, as the oldest son, had to take over the farm. He was attracted to life on the farm but eventually chose a job as a philosophy teacher and got promoted to by guest high teacher in Kiev and Prague.

    Schaap wrote the book 'Het rancuneuze gif' in which he analyses the unpleasanty and anger from the Dutch people. An anger that became visible to the public when Pim Fortuin rose.
