Response To The Death Of An American Soldier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 9, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Ever really wondered how the death of an American soldier is received by Americans? Ever taken a look at how people react when a soldier is killed on American soil? Believe me, I don’t think that you want to; it is akin to the more rabid gun owners of the fair land, who discount the […]

Islamic State: The Price Of Females And Cattle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 5, 2014 in News & Opinion |

In the cult film The Blues Brothers, it came across as a good joke: how much for your wife? In earlier times, in the West at least, ‘selling’ a woman was common practice, something which is still maintained today, in effect, each time a father hands over the dowry to his daughter’s new family. In […]

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 […]

Twitter Links: Hitting Rock Bottom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

For some sites, security is of the utmost importance, and that is a good thing. As we read, almost every single week of the year, about another breach, about more phishing, about millions of e-mail addresses, social security numbers, names and address, bank account details being stolen from their supposedly secure repositories on a server […]

Claiming Freedom Of The Press

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 19, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Freedom of the press is one thing, but the freedom of the reader often gets second place, when it even comes to mind. Freedom of the press and humanity are the foundation of The Epoch Times; our beginnings hailed from a great need to provide uncensored news to a people immersed in propaganda and censorship […]

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

Brittany Maynard has, for some people decided to take the easy way out: she has planned her own death for November 1, and already has the medication to carry it through.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 10, 2014 in News & Opinion |

For those who have campaigned, complained or sworn against the use of digitalized security software on their music, preventing them from either playing it on certain types of systems or copying it for personal use – because no one copies music to sell it on to others online – perhaps your fears are indeed becoming […]

Incest, The Case Against Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 4, 2014 in News & Opinion |

There are many cases presented against marriage between two people of the same gender, many based on tradition, most on the Bible, some on personal feelings that it is just wrong.

Rape Culture: Protection, Guilt And Controversy

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 2, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Who is to blame when a woman is raped, the attacker or the victim? There seem to be various thoughts on this, varying from loading blame on society through men in general right down to the woman herself. Our society, we are told, breeds such crimes. If women didn’t dress in such a provocative manner […]

Breaking News: Top Story Of The Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 25, 2014 in Internet |

There are some posts I write where I think: this is it, this will get people talking. Others seem almost to be place-fillers, something which was on my mind or which happened to interest me for a moment or two but no more than that where I imagine they will be seen but hardly noticed. […]
