“Essentially, thousands of people have been killed by the direct actions taken by their governments. And we go out of that straight into this conflict in Ukraine, (but) who are the ‘good guys’ now? Who are any of us – as nations – to stand up and call out tyranny anymore? We’ve all embraced tyranny!”
Powerful words – from a cartoonist whose images invoke even greater power. That’s why our guest, British cartoonist Bob Moran, is now part of the ‘independent media’ where he has been freed to express his view of the truth.
As a former cartoonist with The Telegraph, the power and influence of Moran’s work was demonstrated by that paper’s dismissing him for expressing opinions inconsistent with the paper’s tyrannical narrative. Now through the Democracy Fund, Moran has dedicated himself to making his cartoons available for free in an effort to broaden awareness of the true political, moral, and social crisis in which we find ourselves.
As to the power of art itself, Ayn Rand once described its source this way:
“Metaphysics – that science that deals with the fundamental nature of reality – involves man’s widest abstractions. It includes every concrete he has ever perceived, it involves such a vast sum of knowledge and such a long chain of concepts that no man could hold it all in the focus of his immediate conscious awareness. Yet he needs that sum and that awareness to guide him – he needs the power to summon them into full, conscious focus. That power is given to him by art.” (Ayn Rand, Art and Sense of Life)
Thus the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” proves Just Right since images have the power to accelerate an awareness of the truth in a way that words alone cannot.
