Let us speak of mice and men, for indeed we live in interesting times.

The capitalist Pied Piper has shrunk our world to the confines of his kaleidoscope, and media is his instrument of choice. The great puppeteer has us addicted to consumerism, to his mighty malls with their bargain sales and food courts. Who we are, what do we want and where we wish to be – he decides, he dictates.

But not to me.
I, the thinker, the artist, the lover, the non-conformist. I make my own music, swim against the tide for humanity.

For we are men, not mice, and this world is no fable.
