"1984" quote that sums up my feelings on the recent election.
If you say it enough times, it becomes truth.

"The consciousness of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of all power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survival."

Following the success of Keep Britain tidy it was a natural progression to produce this - there is a worldwide problem with Nazism and it needs to stop.

These people are ignorant, hateful, bigoted and totally utterly wrong - at no point should there be division among our whole planet - we are all people, we have just as much value as each other whether we are company directors or beggars on the street.

Make racism history

Basically, I haven't submitted anything in a while, and I was looking around in the political section when I realised that almost all of the deviations are always about war. War, america, guns, crime etc. Now although these are serious problems, very serious problems, there are other very serious problems in the world that need our attention too. The hole in the ozone layer, global warming, world poverty etc. It seems that blood is the only way to get a message across anymore... its as if war is more "glamourous" for the political section.

I mean, I know a movie based on an overpopulation crisis wouldn't be so exciting... but things like that, they're still major issues, and ones we can't put as second priorities just because they can't be solved without bullets... well maybe in some peoples opinions it could : P

I assume everyone here has views on most political subjects that arent to do with violence. Dont be afraid to express them.

Originally designed for Adbusters (www.adbusters.org) TV Turn Off Week campaign, which has now evolved into Screen Free Week.

The poster was composed in Illustrator, and full dimensions are meant to be about 28"x18". It looks great printed at that size.

From the Commercial-Free Childhood fact-sheet on Children and Screen Time:

CHILDREN SPEND TOO MUCH TIME WITH SCREEN MEDIA. 

On any given day, 29% of babies under the age of 1 are watching TV and videos for an 

average of about 90 minutes. Twenty-three percent have a television in their bedroom.

 

Time with screens increases rapidly in the early years. Between their first and second 

birthday, on any given day, 64% of babies and toddlers are watching TV and videos, 

averaging slightly over 2 hours. Thirty-six percent have a television in their bedroom.

 

Data vary on the amount of time preschool children spend with screen media, but even the 

most conservative findings show that children between the ages of two and five average 2.2 

hours per day. Other studies show that preschoolers spend as much as 4.16

 and 4.6 hours. per day using screen media. 


Screen time can be habit-forming: the more time children engage with screens, the harder 

time they have turning them off as they become older children.

 

Including when they’re multitasking, 8- to 18-year-olds consume an average of 7 hours and 

11 minutes of screen media per day—an increase of 2.5 hours in just 10 years.

 For older children and adolescents, excessive screen time is linked to increased psychological 

difficulties that include hyperactivity, emotional and conduct problems, difficulties with 

peers and poor school performance.

It only seems right to submit this on Memorial Day a day where we remember those who have given their time to defend our country and especially to remember all those who have died to protect it. :flagus: :salute: However, on this day, Memorial Day, there are alot of companies out there who have decided to have a sale and tie it in with Memorial Day. We've seen this with other holidays. Christmas. Veterans Day. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Could you imagine how navie a white business man must be having a mattress sale on a holiday day remembering slain black civil rights leader? If some people are assine to do that for a holiday honoring one person, image all the people who do this on the holidays that honor more than one person. That's exactly what happens when businesses and advertisers take days like these, days set aside to honor those who protected this country and use it as a day to sell matresses, tires, and home appliances for half-price.

This deviation is a message that television, especially eMpTyV where 15 minutes of ever half-hour are used to promote or sell something their viewers don't need. After a while they become passive consumers.

If you think about it, there are creatures that have no though and ar ravenous consumers. We know them simply as insects. To my knoweledge, the largest known insect is the South American Cockroach, which although the name suggest that it is from South Amerircan, it has a large population in the United States. A hollywood insect breader for horror movies has a sepecim of this species that is about 6 inches large and it is not even the queen.

Given the Amount of advertising that is used to turn people into passive, apathic consumers, is the audience still human or have they become insects?

To the Americans who are reading this:
:flagus: <-- This may be a a small icon that represts our flag. Never the less, it is a symbol. A symbol men and women have died so that it may wave. Alot of good people whom you've never met and probably will never meet have made it possible for you to be at home or go out side and do the things that you do. One day, hopefully not soon, this flag might not exist anymore. A flag is a symbol of a country or an empire. History tells us that those entities are teleological. Could you image waking up one moring and finding that the country that you lived in no longer existed but all that remains of its existance is the flag that it represented?

“They speak of their values; they wish to tell me what to do, and what to think. They give me so many labels, and place reasons for me to hold them tight, even tighter than life itself. They even tell me those are life. “Follow me, I know the way”, “I know the path, it is the right one”, so they say. But, why do they tell me to walk this path, when I se thousands and thousands of path’s on my sides, all leading to the same place but in different ways. Can’t they se? No, they can’t. And it frightens me, my core shatters, because they are so many. So many that can’t se. They preach the importance over their gathered knowledge, how their experiences in life have yielded them an understanding over a path, experience in choices. They believe they have the manual, they believe they know what is best for others, when in reality, they don’t even know what I best for themselves.

Humankind will always be the same, when they ignore the magic which we call “change”. A change will always lead to something better, and if it doesn’t, then change again. But do so truthfully.”

Not much to comment on, just thoughts that got an image-form. The message above is to be read as if the girl said the words; hence the theme of hurt and not understanding, being confused in a world which one cannot live by, cannot reflect over its reasons. Enjoy.

Not a very good picture, but gets the point across. It took a surprisingly long amount of time to make it, since I had to draw the logos and crap.
