Design Observer: In 1953, Bertrand Russell wrote an alphabet book for children called the Good Citizen's Alphabet. It's quirky, philosophical,and surprisingly relevant today. In these political times, so polarized with heated rhetoric, certain words require proper definition to be used correctly in political and social discourse; words such as, "asinine," "erroneous," even "nincompoop." Of course, there are also words that inspire: "liberty," "sacrifice," even "zeal." It is in this spirit that Russell's alphabet is offered here as a slide show, accompanied by his original introduction.
