Is there any reason if you regress?
And just where is the young master Ezra off to?

Well, Adorno posits that what had begun in the Enlightenment as a process of reason does not, in fact, lead to freedom, but rather this very reason arose to dominate the self, and that eventually led to Auschwitz.

That’s a big conundrum when you’re four.

Any conundrum is a big one when you are four.
What can you tell me of your memories at that tender age?
Better still, does my memory stretch back that far.
