I always thought it made more sense to celebrate freedom instead of its loss.

But in South America, this thought is still rather revolutionary. Too many people here regard unmarried women and men as sad losers who deserve pity. Too many parents push their children into unhappy marriages far too early, resulting in violence, alcoholism and homicide.

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a journalist, a spy or a hobo.
