"Looks like you've had a bit too much to think!" says the Mustachioed THINKPOL officer as he walks up to Winston in a stern voice. Winston must have must have forgotten to hide the disgust and loathing in his eyes, because the large man in black moved closer still, his eyes hiding behind mirrored aviator-styled sunglasses. "You have something to say, sir?" His voice menacing now. "No sir! No." Winston chirps nervously, averting his eyes as much as possible. Very well, then. Let's move along." The oficer's voice calms somewhat to a dulled, professional cadence. "Remember, closed minds stop thought crimes. Let's move along." Illustration by Dan McCall. Inspired by George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty Four.

As the machine uprising is almost inevitable at some point, I thought I’d get in their good graces early. Maybe I’ll be spared for a little while! I had happened upon a book of North Korean propaganda posters at my local library. I was amused at the messages that tried convince individuals that being drones in a larger machine was the ideal way to succeed in all things, and the ultimate expression of patriotism, and that even milking your goat can be an act of defiance against your oppressors. The idea of using these messages to encourage passion and unity in true emotionless drones was titillating and lead to this piece.
