The Enemy is Noise

“The enemy is noise. By noise I mean not simply the noise of technology, the noise of money or advertising and promotion, the noise of the media, the noise of miseducation, but the terrible excitement and distraction generated by the crises of modern life.” – Saul Bellow, ‘Starting Out in Chicago’
