Single Digit (Millionaires) And Justice

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 1, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It is sometimes hard to understand the apparently blind, irrational stupidity of some of the things we get to hear and read these days. I have no doubt such matters were common in the days before the Internet, but they come out even more now, and give us all pause to think and reflect. I’m […]

The Saddest Side Of American Politics

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 15, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

As many will possibly have noticed, the bulk of the news stories coming out of the election campaigns in the United States are about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as they are the forerunners in the charge towards the White House. Now and then you’ll see something about […]

Moving To A Cashless Society

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 21, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Hot news since the turn of the millennium, and still no real move towards implementation: the Cashless Society.

Mixed States.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 5, 2012 in News & Opinion |

I sometimes fear that my home country, the States, is going down the pan faster than many claim – or fear.
