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.
For my Communications Design class I was assigned to find a social or political problem that I felt needed to be addressed, and to create/communicate this problem through any medium of my choosing.
I decided to concentrate on the controversial activities currently happening in Iraq. I chose this “war on terror” escapade, which is viewed by many, to be a cover up on obtaining control over the prime oil reserves in the world, and to show that blood has been spilt on obtaining it. The hunger for oil has grown to a ridicules state and thousands are dying: choose peace, not blood.
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.
