Shepard Fairey's Latest Anti-Propaganda


The Imperial Glory print is a comment upon the U.S. military industrial complex. In 1961, as President Eisenhower was leaving office, he delivered a farewell speech in which he warned that “we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.” Judging by the fabrications and misconstructions that sucked us into the Iraq War, and the virtual blank check we’ve handed to defense contractors, I’d say as a nation we’ve done a generally horrible job of keeping the military-industrial complex in check.
