Information is a control mechanism when distributed by the few, but shared freely it is a form of enlightenment. This correspondence has fallen victim to the prior.

Judy-
Your stylized depiction of the droves of forgotten denizens living amongst the waste management systems below Destructon is simple and yet powerfully illustrative of the unspoken reality. These people bare the weight of an entire industrialized Metropolis on their backs, hidden away below the surface toiling amongst the roots and arteries that sustain the gleaming towers above, without reward.
