Insightful Imagery of the Day

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

First up is a whimsical cartoon depicting what many of us have come to know: that underneath the overbearing exterior of power tripping authority figures resides a scared little child desperately trying to protect itself.

Second is a piece decrying the hypocrisy in American politics. This cartoon could be equally applicable to the Canadian Conservatives, except instead of a tank there’d be Harper flying an F-35 to a mega-prison while cutting social services.

That is all. Enjoy your weekend!

Deplorable Imagery of the Day

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Look at the photo above. Note the indifference of the soldiers, like it’s just another day on the job and another teen girl on her knees in distress. What sort of depraved society would deteriorate so far as to allow this kind of disgusting behavior to become commonplace?

While I’ve been unable to confirm legitimacy of this picture, it certainly looks authentic. Israeli news site Ynet reports that thousands of similar pictures exist, and there certainly is a precedent for this kind of disdain from the Israeli Defense Force.

Service in the military is mandatory for all Israeli youth, but who’s there to police these boys and girls with guns once they are set loose on the population?

The answer is no one.

At least not yet.

But give every Palestinian a video camera to capture atrocities and a Wifi connection to share it, and surely the world’s people would rise up and intervene against the institutionalized atrocities perpetuated by Israel.

Inspirational Imagery of the Day

Look! It’s an elephant enjoying a waterfall. How beautiful is that?

She’s living in the moment – something many of us don’t do often enough. Just relishing the wonderful splendor that surrounds us. Simply appreciating how there is so much beauty everywhere, in every thing.

It is awesome to be alive. Existence rules!

Inspirational Imagery of the Day

Today’s inspirational imagery comes from the ground as the space shuttle launches into Earth’s atmosphere. Even though we’ve been doing it for 40+ years now, it’s still a spectacular achievement to fly into space, and a distinguished feather in humanity’s hat.

With all of the problems that plague the planet, like institutionalized war, extreme poverty, and corrupt governance, it’s quite uplifting to see concrete proof that humans are capable of greatness.

Here’s a cute picture for you describing the path to success and happiness in life:

No, I didn’t draw it. Sadly, my drawing ability seems to be limited to crudely etched word puns on iSketch. Oh wait, whose being a Negatron now?
