I used to sift through images of meaningful graffiti and this images would always come up. I have seen it in various eddited and none eddited forms and I think this is an edited version. For a long time I would disregard this image as I didn't understand it's meaning, you may think it's blatent but the other week I finally figured out what it really means. The graffiti is advising us, advising us to simply question what we are told because we beleive the mojority of things we are told with no quarry. Do you not find that strange? Here in England if you are caught peeing in a bush in a local park or something you are subject to a penalty of the law in the form of a fine. One of the most basic principles of human life, excreation is to some degree illegal. I find this truly disgusting especially when there are people out there forcing shit we don't need down our throat, but it's illegal to let that stuff out of your body if you are in a public place. The graffiti is telling us to question everything we are told and come to our own conclusions, because not enough people do. They obey the law, they pay their extortionate taxes and they work their shitty job just so they can be in a position where they can buy the crap being sold to them inbetween tv shows. Think about this for a second, for every 15 mins of television you watch 3-5 mins of that someone will be trying to sell you something. How did it come to this?
