Education: Is This Our World?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 23, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’ve seen quite a few videos on YouTube recently where a television presenter has interviewed ordinary people on the street, asking them a series of easy general knowledge questions. The answers have been, to put it mildly, disappointing. Then I also spent some time reading through lists of Tweets, Facebook updates, Yahoo Questions and similar, […]

Charlie Hebdo: I Lost My Sympathy

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

For over a year I, and countless other people, have been sympathetic towards those who create and publish Charlie Hebdo, the satire magazine from Paris, over their loss. Following a terrorist attack, many of the leading lights in this magazine lost their lives in what can only be described as an act of terror, a […]

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. […]

Breaking: I Have No Time For Culture

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2014 in News & Opinion |

There are some things in this life which simply cause your chin to drop down on your chest and a thin line of spittle to run out the corner of your mouth in disbelief. A culture minister who has no time for books? I will admit that there is a great deal a culture minister […]

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 […]

Review: Iron Kingdom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 16, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

As everyone who has spent more than ten minutes in a classroom knows, history is a boring subject packed with dates and names which have to be learned by heart so that, at the end of the year, everything can be regurgitated on an exam paper. The textbooks given out are bland, filled with maps […]

Film Night

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 19, 2014 in Absolute Hot!, Personal |

It’s late, and I’m not going to write much simply because I have to be up early, as usual, in the morning. We went to the cinema this evening, a girl’s night out without all the partying! The film we had chosen, for reasons which will be clear in a moment, was La Vie d’Adèle […]

Don’t Be Shy

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 25, 2012 in News & Opinion |

We are constantly being faced with prejudice, racism, materialism, consumerism ism this and ism that. Most of these isms are easy enough to get around, to avoid or to ignore, but some of them effect our lives directly and in these cases we shouldn’t just walk away as if it is nothing. It is possible […]

Kate Middleton

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 13, 2012 in News & Opinion |

The first time Kate Middleton really came into the public eye it was through comments on her clothing and the wonderful figure this clothing enhanced. Now a French magazine has gone a step further and published photographs of her partially unclothed during a private rest hour in a private residence in France. Of course many, […]
