On my desk I keep a jar filled with dirt. It comes from an Orwellian land where information has long been fanatically controlled. Since 1948, its cruel dictators have been venerated as gods, first the father and then his son. Meanwhile, most of its 24 million people subsist on tree bark, grass and whatever they can scavenge from this dirt.1 comments
