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.
This is a piece by I didn't think it would turn out very good, I realize it's a bit on the nose, what with it being myself putting a gun to Hitler's head and all (and that is my hand there). I messed around with it a bit in Photoshop and I really like the results. Peruse my scraps for the bits used in making it.
“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.
Oh how angry this one will make people when it ends up on a T-shirt that I happen to wear. Or the sticker that may end up on my vehilce.
Most certainly will end up on my "bag of tricks" and AR case. May even show up on my bail out bag.
