Feedback: The inclusion of the Picasso surrealism artwork is both provocative and insightful, did he [Dali] know what was to come .. much peace.
Peace departed when I read Picasso for Salvador Dali!

According to the ppl at New York Sun.com, Salvador Dalí (1904-89) considered himself a prophet and a genius!
Salvador Dali, The Face of War

While the good folk at TweetSpeak say..
By the late 1930s, Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali was one of the most notable painters of the movement. Having shown the masterful ability to capture the essence of the unconscious, Dali had garnered a world-wide following, in no small part due to his famous painting, “The Persistence of Memory.”
However by the close of the 30s, the days were coming darker amidst the building Nazi threat, and the images of molten pocket-watches likely failed to capture the collective consciousness of the day. So, in 1940, Dali set out to capture “The Face of War.”
The work depicts a head, free-floating in a post-apocalyptic desert. Wearing an expression eerily reminiscent of the figure in Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” the eyes and mouth contain other free floating heads, these more skeletonized than the first.
Dali gives the illusion that the heads exist in infinity, the eyes and mouths of each successive head filled with others just like it. The shadows of the head point west as the rising sun exposes a new, horrific reality.
In its day, the painting was certainly shocking, a visceral portent of the coming conflict. But with the benefit of hindsight, one wonders whether Dali was more than a participant in the surrealist movement. One wonders whether he had become a prophet of sorts, whether he saw the fall of Hiroshima in 1945, and with it, the rise of a nuclear world where great civilizations could be laid to ruin in the span of an afternoon.
Salvador Dali was an eccentric fellow, some might say. But I might argue that he was something more. I might argue that Dali came to embody the surrealist exploration of the human unconsciousness, and in so doing, his prophetic vision was the most perfect of the surrealist works.
Feedback: Thank you for your kindness I appreciate your polite correcting of my mistake, I was obviously fatigued when I wrote Picasso instead of Dali .. I was probably thinking of Guernica.
Guernica, by Pablo Picasso
Feedback: Dali kept company with the cabal/illuminati/whatever of the day, just as George Orwell had.
Orwell was a product of the British public school system and is said to have been a nice guy, not withstanding his role at judicial hangings during the British occupation of Burma, he was however a hack writer, and just as the Greenberg studio presents truth disguised as fiction in the matter of 911.
As well as various other alleged massacres including Columbine School, VA Tech, the Boston Marathon and Sandy Hook, so was Orwell importuned to produce 1984 by publishers with a Zionist agenda.
Just as those outrages were presaged in various Zionist sponsored television shows and movies, so was GO employed to produce a pseudo political tome, whose narrative would mirror subsequent events!
