Story Challenge: Letter “V”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “V”? For example I’ve written about the VEIL duty (read below) or Vancouver, about Venice and Valencia, Valparaiso or Venezuela, a Volkswagen or a vampire, vibraphones and visitors, about the hanging tram in Vohwinkel and the choir of grievance in Vienna, about Vermeer and Visbeek, about the photographers Vittorio and Valery, violins and violinists, about Volvo and Venlo, virgins and videos, about Vietnam and violence, victims or victories etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “V”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “V”!!!

VEIL duty

“A religion, which makes humans dark, is wrong…” Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) wrote. If one connects this with his remark: “It is the greatest incumbency of a philosopher and becomes most seldom found anyway to be consistently …” – then one has to brood, how resilient people have to behave versus a gloomy religion opinion. Since “September Eleven” one asks not only how to react versus the Islam-bound fundamentalism, but also how to act against obstinately Christian crusade reflexes. Kant behaved with pleasure quite rationally to the at that time usual religiousness: But it almost was not possible to show more than quiet irony alike: “Metaphysics is a dark ocean without shores or lighthouse, strewn with many a philosophic wreck.”
