"Alert. High noon." , by Erik Pevernagie, oil on canvas,

If the reality of our life has become an unsettling arabesque puzzle, and we still want to add more filigree embroidery to it, we might, someday, expect to stray from the point of recognition. We lose then the final thread, expelled to the edge of delusion, and forced to dance on the brim of chaos.

The unknown leaves the door open. Ignorance has the door shut.

Some who call the shots are sometimes tightrope-walking between unconcern and ignorance. They give way to unrestrained vagaries and bypass all the priorities of our environment. Therefore, we mustn't fail to value those who take courage to stand up against random practices, institutional malfunction, and flagrant injustice, and speak out against social decay and moral obliviousness.

When our freedom's underlying structure is in jeopardy, we do well to be concerned about our whistle-blowers. Blinking beacons are essential to secure a living together in a social framework we can trust.

Ignorance and stupidity are the most dangerous viruses that jeopardize our living together. Calamity cannot be prevented nor cured, merely as a result of unawareness.


In the land of the ostriches, the blind are kings. When politicians bury their heads in the sand, ignorance rules the country.

Phenomenon: Freedom, whistle-blower, ignorance.

Factual starting point of the picture: Person announcing the alarm level.
