Megan & Emily – The Forerunner of Justice and Foundation of Democracy

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is … Continue reading

Megan- Magical Realism

I was introduced to magical realism last year through the work of writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, famously the author of the award-winning novel 100 Years of Solitude. It’s a striking and impactful book… But it’s also not the one I will be talking about, at this moment. This did, however, open doorways to me, into … Continue reading

Megan: Designer Babies

If you had the choice to prevent your future child from being born with certain fatal diseases, would you do it? What about disabilities? What about their gender? What if you could even choose their eye colour? In-vitro fertilization, the process of fertilizing human eggs outside of the body and then implanting them back into … Continue reading

Philip K. Dick- Megan

But I talk to her today because I’m bored and she’s bored and we’ve run out of lines on the wall to count. We don’t … Continue reading

Megan: The Importance of Stories

I have been putting off writing this blog post for longer than I should have- distracted, ultimately, by all the things I would rather be doing. It’s not as if I do not enjoy philosophising immensely, far from it; it’s simply that I’d rather be writing other things at this particular moment in time. And … Continue reading

Megan: A Philosophy in Stories

They were close friends, without ever having spoken a word. They met daily, coming together beneath the shade of the towering oak, the only tree still standing in the park near both of their homes. She was a young girl who questioned the world with her eyes, and he an old man who had lived … Continue reading
