on barking

The multitude of voices one can’t understand has two possible effects – they either become unbearable noise OR something like a foreign language one would wish to learn. You ask yourself if all this barking a meaning or is it just barking in vain. You then replace the barking with the talking in the former sentence. You ask yourself whether voice alone can tell a story or this voice needs a language. You think of what’s democracy supposed to be, and if the right to barking is included in the concept as well. You are not sure if cacophony can cause deafness.
