When it comes to pointing out the follies of humanity and the tragic ironies under which we all fool ourselves into continuing, and give humanity some real insight, there is one man who doesn’t fuck around.

Dr. Seuss.

And he does mean the word “doctor”. This is one man who, throughout the environmentally conscious Lorax or the confidence conscious Oh! The Places you’ll Go asked you to consider the waste you produce and the pleasures you take for granted.

And he was just as effective at asking people to donate money for the war effort, prescribing much more than a cleansing of the mind. He always sought direct action from people.

And he was damn good at it, even if he more famously let this energy make people smile and laugh instead of re-examine their own behavior.
