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. […]

Trying To Cover All Bases

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2015 in Internet |

No matter where you are, no matter what you may believe your Rights to be, there are some things which cannot be said, which cannot be published for all to see. Prime examples are the major swear words, the Confederate flag, the word Vagina in the United States. In Germany it is the swastika, claims […]

Martyrs: The Next Cause Is Calling You

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It seems to be the easy way out, and a way of ensuring that there is no religious strife at Christmas time in the United States. The Postal Service has decided to issue normal postage stamps for Christmas, ones which include no religious symbols. For some this will undoubtedly be an attack on their religious […]

Creation: The Ultimate Proof?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I had the dubious pleasure, a few days ago, of overhearing a conversation about the ultimate proof that there is a God or, if you will, a god. It was delivered by a middle-aged woman to a man, who clearly had no interest whatsoever, but played along just for the ride. In essence it began […]

Mother’s Day: Abusing The Memory

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 10, 2015 in Internet |

Today, in some countries around the world, is a day when we say Thank You to those who, selflessly, cared for us during those first years of our lives. We thank our mothers for the time they sacrificed for us, for the effort in bringing us into the world and the love and care shown […]

Freedom Of Expression And Speech Over Religion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Do people really appreciate, let alone understand, what it is that they are marching in favor of? Do those same people understand the massive difference between what is being claimed as a Right, as a Freedom, and the Rights and Freedoms of those people on the other side of the street? The killing of so […]

Je Suis Charlie: The Final Censor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is one thing to remove a few cleavages because a censor does not feel them to be appropriate for a modern-day audience, it is quite another thing to use a weapon to perform an act of censorship. As I wrote about the Chinese censorship the other day, about the banning of a film by […]

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 […]

Lecrae Moore: It’s A Bad Argument

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Let me get one thing straight before I even begin: I have no problem when someone wishes to follow a religion, regardless of which one it may be, or no religion at all. Each to their own: we’re pretty much all adults and should be able to make our own decisions. I also have no […]

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 […]
