A Rant turned into a Question.
The last panel of the Four Freedoms is written text.
It asks, "What is The Status of The Four Freedoms Today?"
Freedom from Fear (?)
Freedom form Want (?)
Freedom of Speech (?)
Freedom of Religion (?)
oh. You need a guest bed? Lucky you.
Freedom of Speech seems to be Doing the very best.
Everyone is talking. No one can be heard over the Amplified Noise and The Other Noise!
The World is Loud! It always Has Been.
Water Falls and Waves and Wind and Thunder are Loud!
Engenes are Loud. Power Tools are Loud.
Those weird little cars that go Thumping-Thumping are Loud.
People Sometimes need to Yell to be heard over all the Noise.
How can People Think with all the Noise?
Quiet is a Luxury? Always has been?
(huh?) No body tells me anything.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.
Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
