"There are no longer protagonists; there is only the chorus." --Ortega y Gassett
What it takes to "stand out from the crowd" when there's no "appeal to authority"... just 6 billion self-appointed authorities. No single standard of value, just 6 billion individual standards. Notoriety and fame, indistinguishable. Success a million fathers, failure only one.
Is it any wonder we feel lost and seek recognition? There's no one else to recognize us or be recognized... is there? Welcome to Lilliput, the land of No Gullivers. A hunt for Waldo in a picture without a Waldo.
