Claiming The Glory, Unearned

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

If you reads through the m,any posts here, you will notice that I do not take any one particular side when it comes to politics, whether it be US or European. Unlike many, if not most, politicians, I am keen for the best to be done for the country in which I live, and not […]

A Lack Of Understanding

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 17, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Undoubtedly many tens of thousands of words will be written about the terrorist attacks in Paris. Anger and fear will be expressed, or has already been. Blame will be placed, whether it is due or not. People will be attacked because of their appearance, their religion, their home country. I can easily imagine that the […]

The Ritual Of The Dead

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 23, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is something about the ritual of remembrance which fascinates, something which pulls people together and makes them whole, regardless of who they are, where they come from or their status in life. At some stage in our lives we all fall for this ritual: birthdays, anniversaries, holy holidays, they are all ritualistic and needed. […]

Tearing Down Walls, Building New Walls

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 4, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I wonder whether some politicians, and members of the general public, think about what they are going say before opening their mouths. For those in the United States of America, founded upon the idea of freedom and immigration, I get the impression that many do not; they spout all sorts of political rubbish without taking […]

Watching Parliament: An Undemocratic Act?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 9, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Some people are dedicated to their jobs, in many more ways than one. How many stories have we heard or read, how many people have we see, complete with laptop or smart phone, on their vacation, working away from the office? According to the Wall Street Journal, one German ex-politician from the European Parliament takes […]

Copyright: Who Owns That Building Right There?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 2, 2015 in Photography |

Copyright is, at the best of times, a complicated subject fraught with problems for the layperson and pitfalls for both copyright owners and those who wish to use an image, an extract, an item for a specific purpose. In theory everyone knows that a photograph, taking just one example, is copyrighted, even if they do […]

Paris: The Death Of A Christmas Dream

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 18, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

You’d think that people would have more respect. The season of goodwill is almost upon us, at least as far as every shop in the Christian world is concerned, and everyone is preparing themselves for the onslaught of the holiday season, having only just accepted that it is Fall and getting cold again. And the […]

The Land Of Equality: Defining Sub-Cultures

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 24, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Did you know that the phrase Land Of The Free is not just a line in the Star-Spangled Banner? It is the title of the national anthem of Belize, and the text was written by Samuel Haynes who, in the 1920s began organizing the Universal Negro Improvement Association there. As many already know, Belize was […]

Where Germany Stands Now

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

With the initial euphoria over the world cup out-of-the-way, and the German team preparing to return to a celebration in the center of Berlin, some people appear to be putting a completely different light on the win against Argentina – and other teams in the lead up to the final yesterday – and its meaning.

Finding The Right Party: The Big X

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 25, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Would you vote for a political party whose campaign includes a poster against standardizing women’s breast sizes? How about one which is determined to return to exclusive Christian principles, or Feminist Rights, Neo-Nazi or de-unification of the State? The German elections for new representatives in Europe have all these, and more. There is no two-party […]
