To Speak Or Not To Speak

To Speak or Not to Speak

In this cartoon words are not only spoken but also written in balloons as used in comic-strips. The man in the street, when interviewed, gives vague and evasive replies, impersonal as the lettering in his balloon. But a little hippy gives a direct answer with decorative lettering in a colourful balloon. Soon his unusual talent will be converted by the all-consuming society and the money-minded warmongers but worst of all, also by totalitarian power.
