Since the beginning of time, people have had religion to give them a more fulfilling and purposeful life. They feel more comfortable having something not of this world that they can get help from when all else fails. In fact, many people keep religion simply because they are afraid of being alone in the world and feel…

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.

University of Ilorin,

Ilorin, Nigeria

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.…

LACK OF INTEGRITY: THE GREATEST ETHICAL CHALLENGE

Ubong Joshua,

University of Uyo, Uyo, Nigeria,

Undergraduate student.

As a student, in 2016 I got an annual scholarship of #150,000. The fund was for my tuition, textbooks, and other expenses. It was a huge relief to my family that was getting overburdened with my academic expenses. Yet, everytime I thought about the scholarship, I felt a plague haunting me. I tried as much as I could, but could not neglect it. It reminded that one of the documents I used to obtain the…

Don't miss this valuable discussion.

Her latest book, "State Tectonics," is the third in a series that explores the concepts of "micro-democracy" and a "global information management bureacracy" in the near future. How have separatists from East Timor to Catalonia influenced Older's novels?
