A short Treatise on Privacy, Isolation, and Communication.
We hereby declare the use of sunglasses in non-utilitarian or non-ironic circumstances criminal. Sunglasses may be marginally soothing to your eyes whilst basking in the full heat of a july day, and perhaps once in a while whilst trekking across the snow-blinding arctic, BUT THEY'RE NOT NEARLY AS USEFUL AS THE AMOUNT OF SUNGLASS WEARING WOULD LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE. For me in fact, sunglasses are only useful for losing. Which isn't useful at all.
These sneaky little barriers, creations of the modern metropolis, serve only to alienate us and turn us into distrustful, shallow, and socoipathic creatures of fear.
Eyes are windows to the soul. You may not like the idea of strangers seeing your soul, but the majority of strangers aren't that strange.
Throw down your glasses!
Cars shall be driven with the windows down, except if:
- It's really cold
- You're on the freeway
- The music's really good.
