    Do the younger generations get the Clark Kent reference? They must. I can’t help but comment on the many layers to this cartoon. First is the obvious Clark Kent who is of course Superman. And it will take an Superman effort to overcome what the words at the top convey. Next layer is that Clark Kent is a reporter, a journalist. So alluding to the role of journalists in getting the truth out about the propaganda that leads to the cynical state we are in as perpetual victims, slaves to the “pointless perpetuation of intoxicating violence.” The featured image I have included from Ricardo Levins Morales–no pun is intended on Mr. Fish’s name. Rather it is the conclusion about collective action to change things that Mr. Fish’s words conclude with. Website for Booth: Website for Ricardo Levins Morales:
