      I concur that Picasso is superior. It uses imagery instead of text to convey the message for one thing. The work also is linear in the sense that it does present a timeline, abet simply one depicting the moment the artist viewed the devastation. The colors, or lack thereof, are greys suitable for the somber subject matter. Through the use of distortion combined with perspective what images that seared the most into the artist's mind are evident.

      Shall I go on?

      Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.

      but your tone came off as pretty condescending.  like:

      'if all you little people had travelled like me, you would know better...'

      maybe that's not how you meant it, but that's how it came off to me...

      and for the record--  i agree that travel is a great thing, but it simply requires time and money that many people can't afford very often, if ever.  especially these days...
