A child marches purposefully down Calle Real, a street in Segovia, past the abandoned Cervantes Theater. The theater’s facade is emblazoned with a message, an ode to total freedom written in very direct terms (“Let kisses be the only things that keep you from talking”), that tell us to speak out in the face of injustice. I would round off the message with: “Set up a dialogue and remember to try to understand what the other is saying.” Actually, the author should be taken to task, given that the wall of this emblematic building is hardly the best place for his or her musings. Moreover, a facade provides only limited space; the most noble values have been etched on the conscience of mankind down through history using a far more powerful tool: education.
