Sign of the times?

As seen in a window of a nearby building.

What do you think?

According to Oscar Wilde:

Popularity is the crown of laurel which the world puts on bad art. Whatever is popular is wrong.

But he also said:

Popularity is the one insult I have never suffered.

Here’s Mark Twain’s take:

Everybody's private motto: It's better to be popular than right.

But Twain also says this:

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

Winston Churchill’s is thought provoking:

Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.

And Ralph Waldo Emerson:

What your heart thinks is great, is great. The soul's emphasis is always right.
