RE: Spokesperson for Quiet



On the other hand, giving out earplugs can make people think: if I need earplugs, the problem must be really bad!

  I am kind of ambivalent about earplugs, even though I have 
  them myself.  I feel indignant about having to use them, 
  particularly in my own domicile.   They are no solution, but
  only a strategy of temporary relief from the noise onslaught.

  People should not be encouraged to think that all they need
  to do is wear earplugs.   Literature accompanying their
  distribution needs to emphasize that we shouldn't have to
  wear earplugs, while recognizing their regrettable necessity
  at the present time.  The most important goal is to conduct 
  and win a campaign against noise pollution.
