Watch, Ride, and Report

Big Brother wants your help!

watch, ride, and report-soviet-propaganda

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:


# Monument in North Korea


# Soviet era propaganda poster

“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

  1. That is creepy another thing about that art is looks very rigid and only uses straight lines quite symbolic of a totalitarian regime

  2. That’s what you get when you have the devil from the Soviet union running your homeland security I guess.

  3. indeed its pretty mad their using anything like that in the US. this is off topic but i think you might find it interesting an article on internal trafficking of British white girls by black and Asian gangs happening in the UK. multiculturalism in action and how police are afraid to do anything because of PC and being labeled racist it pretty ridiculous, when the welfare a young girls comes second to upsetting minority communities for telling the truth of the matter and getting justice!

  4. The benefits of “diversity”, truly, only evil racists could be against so much “cultural enrichment”! What did our ancestors do all those centuries without all the benefits of diversity? Living in Babylon is so great, I’m actually pretty happy that I do not believe in Christianity for otherwise I would had to assume that it won’t take much longer till fire starts to rain down again..

  5. Is it just me, or does it look like a phallus getting potential brutal treatment from the hammer and sickle?

  6. So because the artist used soviet propaganda as inspiration for the poster asking you to keep an eye for suspicious packages, it is proof that the system is something?
