The Dignity of Man
“It seemed that people and tyranny had made a pact to accept communism as the only path. I am thinking of a community that survived in isolation, the kind of community that is easily satisfied and can easily remain so , even when oppressed by a dictatorship.
This generation, faced with an outrageous tyranny and lack of liberty, didn’t know how to object. In their external behavior and appearance, they looked like they were far away, living another kind of life. Even when they fought, it was only with each other, and it looked more like play than battle. Many drawings depict the poverty and hard work of the people who appear to be—and feel that they are—a forgotten, neglected mass, exposed at any time to the violence of authority.” (Edi Hila)
