Of Mice and Men - redux?  Chastening and often stunning images of the impact that global recession can have in our day and age might suggest so, yet the blooming sunflower might suggest too that hope springs eternal or, as Roy Harper puts it so lyrically, "through all destruction flies new dawn".

Quote 698

The next revolution - World War III - will be waged inside your head. It will be a guerrilla information war fought not in the sky or on the streets, not in the forests or even around the scarce resources of the earth, but in newspapers and magazines, on the radio, TV and in "cyberspace". It will be a dirty, no-holds-barred propaganda war of competing worldviews and alternative visions of the future - Marshall McLuhan, Culture is our Business, 1970

Quote 697

The distinctions between cultures are not decorative ?it's not feathers and bells or dancers or songs. Those are the symbols of culture. The essence of culture is a blanket of moral and ethical values that we place around the individual. It's culture that allows us to make sense out of sensation, to find order in a universe that may have none - Wade Davis
