Stick it to the Man


Those who control what you see, control how you think

I don't know how you feel about graffiti in general, but when the black marker showed up on newspaper boxes screaming "Lies" and "Nazi Post" I thought it was funny. It's a direct response and challenge to the sources of information. While I doubt it affected readership, perhaps it reminded people to take what they read with a grain of salt.

It's nice to see ground level reminders that keep people aware of the limitations of the information infrastructure. We should remain critical and analytical thinkers, rather than parroting whatever facts and opinions are presented without question.

What do you think?
