The truth unspoken

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Recently I read, and answered, a question on my Twitter timeline. In German it was asked which of 2 terms was more overused, one of which I still know was “capitalism”, the other was a term about equal treatment, I don’t know the exact one anymore. The choice was actually rather easy and yet also…

We were born to learn, but remain ignorant

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Ever heard of that saying that we were not born with ignorance, but we were taught to be ignorant? That saying kind of shows ignorance in its own, as it misses the point completely.

A horrible quote

What is the most common form of discrimination? Probably you will start thinking about mental health, skin colors, nationalities or gender preferences… It might come as a shock, but none of them is right. When I would use the words pediaphobia, ephebiphobia and the resulting adultism you would probably be confused, as these are words you…
