What’s your view?

Musician and pedagogue, Lotta Johanson who works both in Sweden and abroad, is a guest on RealStars’ blog. You see them everywhere, people believing themselves to be superior to others, people who claim power and control other people’s lives. People who even think they have the right to conquer another person’s body. Conquer, i.e. to… Read more »
