Watch, Ride, and Report
Big Brother wants your help!
This poster looking like something taken right out of Orwell’s “1984” or the Soviet union is reported as being used on the MARC commuter train between Baltimore and DC. The Soviet art style, the red color, and even a star at the top! Another wake up call for those who still believe that everything is alright! This “kantig” and ugly art style without the use of shadows btw was for a long time the only style of art allowed in the Soviet union.
Some Soviet propaganda and art for comparison:

“The fallacy is to believe that under a dictatorial government you can be free inside. [. . .] The greatest mistake is to imagine that the human being is an autonomous individual. The secret freedom of the mind which you can supposedly enjoy under a despotic government is nonsense, because your thoughts are never entirely your own.” — George Orwell, As I Please, 28 April 1944
