Paranoid by submission

June 2005

As a call back to the cold war and world war era visual and written propaganda, today’s general public now finds itself in a state of heightened paranoia for all things government and business related as they are hammered daily by media outlets. Think, don’t speak; watch, don’t blink…society’s laziness and shallow view of life has forced us into a state of quiet, paranoid submission. We know we are lied to, we know we are herded like cattle; we see the slow disintegration of ourselves and everything we know, yet other than the odd protest or verbal outburst, we decide to sit back and watch.
