If You Will It, It Is No Dream

Communism deprives no man of the ability to appropriate the fruits of his labour. The only thing it deprives him of is the ability to enslave others by means of such appropriations.


Don't get your hopes up. I haven't changed teams. I just looking at these posters of Obama's that I see everywhere. They reminded me of things you see in war movies in Vietnam or eastern Europe. My curiosity led me to find who designed these posters. Shepard Fairey. The crazy thing was when I looked up his other work. Self fulfilling prophecy I guess.....

Stalin and Lenin...who is this guy? He has about 5 other old school communist posters with Stalin & Lenin and a couple of solo shots of each of them.......?

Good old Mao these icons!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not lumping O Town in with these monsters (what did he not have enough time to squeeze in a quick Castro portrait?). And I know these posters are likely not endorsed or produced via Obama's campaign (they cost $70!). Either way, I feel like his handlers might have steered him away from such a similarity.

Finally, those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes. Eh, Comrade?
