The Favour Bank

Today, the world faces numerous ethical challenges; abortion, drug testing on animals and euthanasia among others. Varying opinions are exuded as to what the greatest could be. Why don’t we analyse one quite major but often side-lined, deeply inaugurated into our day to day lives; the favour bank.

I had, out of frustration, once considered why, in the world today, we are tangled with a lot of problems (political, social, economic and environmental). Eventually, I couldn’t help concluding that the problems we…

The Globalisation of Crime

She looked at the mouldy ceiling and saw how the moths were attracted to the light. They flew closer, in fascination, but never knew what was coming for them when they came too close to the electric glow of a bug zapper instead. And then the girl looks out the window and sees the neon signs which not so long ago she saw from afar.…
