The more I read and reflect...

... the more I feel like part of a Fourth Estate, a Quatrième Etat...


"1st. What is the third estate? Everything.
2nd. What has it been heretofore in the political order? Nothing.
3rd. What does it demand? To become something therein.
Abbé Sieyès, "What is the third estate?"("Qu'est-ce que le Tiers-Etat?"), January 1789

The Third Estate (Fr. tiers état) was the generality of people which were not part of the other estates..."

No need to guess what a possible definition of a Fourth Estate is then?

Signing off............. Rhetoric - Rearing its ugly head --> Disenfranchised.......
