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.
