Insufficient Data

The only way to make sense of the world is to create.
Wars fought in the name of 'Democracy' or "Freedom', still have the same effect on the victims. Who will not remember them favourably, no matter how much time passes...

Or so I've been told.

Man in the picture: The Shootings of 3rd May, 1808 - GOYA, Francisco
He died in a second , but has lived on for 200 years...
"For the first time war was depicted as futile and inglorious and for the first time there were no heroes only killers and the killed. "

One of Goya's "Black Paintings"

"Some of his visions seem to go deeper into the dark recesses of the mind than we are capable of penetrating. One, "Saturn Devouring one of his Children" (above), is one of the most horrifying pictures ever painted. His life built up to a climax, isolations and despair provided the conditions in which he produced his innermost masterpieces."

Sane reaction to an insane world?
