"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

Sunday Cartoon: Endless Highway « Previous | |Next »
January 4, 2004

I know it is the New Year. I realize that we should all be happy and fully engaged in celebrating a future that is so pregnant with the promise of a better life for all.

But I'm depressed.

Here is some new year cheer:

Tis the best I can do in the moment.

Life feels like an endless highway. The clip of the song on the radio endlessly repeats itself in between all the corporatisation and merchandising of emotion and sentiment in sport. Those inside the car rarely speak, as they are stunned by how the stretch of road seems to eternally recur no mattter how long they've been travelling.

The storm clouds just hang on the horizon, the heat is unbearable and the car has no airconditioner.

The small country towns along the way have a dilapidated feel, the petrol stations are closed and the deli's are waiting for the next delivery of cold drinks and icecream.
