Last night she dreamt she went to Manderley again. In her dream the old house was as beautiful as ever. It was May, the best time of the year, the sun was shining, the trees and the smooth green lawns covered the driveway. She could smell the sea beyond the gardens. She woke up, It was just a flight fancy, Manderley was far away. Straight away, she had never yearned the current reality, but the truth was ruthless and bitter. Manderley had been destroyed by hate and evil. Once and forever Rebecca had won. By the time she arrived at Manderley as Max de Winter’s wife, under no circumstances had she lived free of Rebecca. The late Mrs. de Winter was so clever, everyone thought Rebecca was the most charming person ever.

All of us steal, don't we?

Details

Nowadays, more than ever, we are sick and tired of seeing so many corruption cases on the news. Those cases seem to be growing like a wild weed. Nobody appears to remain clean, neither politicians, regardless their party, nor even the Royal Family. Meanwhile, the innocent working citizens, surrounded by all this mess, claim for a solution. Nevertheless, are we that innocent? Are we so different from them after all?
