    Morality Free Zone

    Morality is the distinction of rights and wrongs in choices, with the aim of a more enlightened outcome of any situation. The inherit problem with morality is that every noun can be assigned the value of "Evil" or "Good". Now this alone is a contradiction that leaves grey areas...

    Money, Gold, Words, Action

    If you go down the timeline you may accept that there was a time without money and a time without gold and a time without words. The first human beings have surely talked to each other but they didn't need money nor did they need gold. But true is also that long before any human...
