The words Liberté, Egalité and Fraternité on the work weg weisend symbolize the foundations of our political constitution and democracy. Thus, questioning the ideals of the French Revolution and enlightenment, the signs provoke thoughts about possible interpretation and implementation of those key works in our present society: Liberty is leading to the high way - main stream: the car or automobile stems from the Greek word auto (meaning self, alone, for yourself) which became the epitome for our idea of autonomy and freedom today. Equality is pointing towards a historical sight. Fraternity seems to be a local destination.
