"Resonance.. We don't need no thought control!"

Resonance - we don't need no thought control

This rather adorable little alien, in uncharacteristically bright WW I attire, combined with this title reminds me of anti-establishment band Rage Against the Machine. At their concerts thousands of people chanted along with front-man Zack de la Rocha (in quite a mechanical fashion):
F*** you I won't do what you tell me.

Thought control can be rather complex, since they who try to raise awareness about it, are often trying to be conductors of our thoughts themselves. Their goals might be more noble (or not) - to get there they use essentially the same road as those they oppose.

Was Rodger Waters trying to make us think for ourselves, or like him, when he brought his famous lines into the world: We don't need no thought control / Teacher leave those kids alone / All in all you're just another brick in the wall'?

And what about the photographer of the Photo of the Week, selecting these words to accompany his photograph of a spray-painted fire hydrant?

It seems thought control is rather contagious. When you try to fight or even uncover it, you run a high risk of inadvertently using it.

Seems best to ignore the phenomenon altogether.

You know what else this photo of the week reminds me of?

The fact that my one year old daughter was born with dancing skills and desires, but has to wait until she is about three before she can blow snot out her nose to help herself breathe freely.

That discovery surprised me a great deal. It also made me very happy about life in general. Much like this wacky little fire-hydrant, which keeps bringing a smile to my face.
