"Yea, foolish mortals, Noah's flood is not yet subsided; two thirds of the fair world it yet covers."

I saw this cartoon on IFC when I was about 15 and I've remembered it ever since. When I first watched it, I remember thinking it was mostly about the plight of the individual under communist rule, but after seeing it today I realized that it obviously has a deeper meaning that can be more broadly applied. How naive I was!
