Freedom is Slavery by luvataciousskull Freedom is Slavery by luvataciousskull
"Freedom is Slavery"

This is the second in a series of pieces inspired by Nineteen Eighty-Four. I wanted to do a series that was based on the three slogans of the party, and how they related to current events.

"Freedom is Slavery"... I contemplated a few people for this. Hitler. Stalin. The President of Iran. I may still do that last one. For now, I wanted to focus on the United States and recent events in America. Who better than Dick Cheney?

Since leaving elected office, he has been one of Obama's most vocal critics. Ironic considering the fact that he spent his 8 years as Vice President doing all he could to limit the rights and freedoms of American's! The chief architect on "The War on Terror", he also helped to keep as much hidden from Americans as possible.

To him, Freedom is Slavery. Slavery to the will of others that would, in the end, seek for the same rights and freedom of others.

No apostrophe in Americans. No letters are missing nor does it possess something. Otherwise an excellent use of George Orwell. If our opponents can show we're illiterate they can denigrate our argument. So don't give them the chance.

THANK YOU! It's a great poster. screw those right wing critics. DA is a bastion of liberalism and those who defy us should tread lightly!


BTW... freaking AWESOME gallery. This is truly my favorite style of design.

Thanks, man! But I also love the conservatives, too. Well, except Neo-Con's. They suck.

I'm pretty sure it should be 'Americans' without the ('), otherwise it makes it possessive when it doesn't need to be.

But other than that it's exquisite! Great job. :D

Funny, but Dick Cheney never got cheered for suggesting we needed a "civilian national security force". Dick Cheney didn't say government is the solution to all our problems.

Our current president has done far more in one year to create an actual 1984 than Dick Cheney ever did.
