Government Warning Poster by Libertymaniacs Government Warning Poster by Libertymaniacs
Government mandated warning labels are ubiquitous now, why not have real government warning labels--That warn against government!

Governments kill, maim, and despoil more than anything, yet we don't make a habit of simply warning the average citizen. That is until now!

Well that's really only in America if we were only to talk about the Western Countrys. And I don;t think it has much to do because of their government, but rather because the Americans are just complete idiots.

Several things  listed on there legitimate government functions. Such as taxes, crowd control, making arrests, and using defensive force.

If the virtuous are placed in positions of evidence, transgressions will remain hidden; but if the wicked are employed, crimes will be punished. In the former case the people will be stronger than the law; in the latter, the law will be stronger than the people. If the people are stronger than the law, then there is lawlessness in the state, but if the law is stronger than the people, the army will be strong. Therefore it is said: 'Governing through good people leads to lawlessness and dismemberment; governing through wicked people leads to order and strength.'"

Yeah! Screw the government! It's not like they deliver the mail, run the sewers, power our cities, or give us clean water everyday.

The government does none of those things. People do. The reason government does them is that they choose it. The government here in the United States by all measures runs the mail horribly, inefficiently, at a loss, and as a legal monopoly. 

Simply because we choose to give government the authority to run civil services doesn't mean that we should accept the fact, for example, over 500 individuals have been killed by our police in the United States thus far this year. Or that our government is run by wealthy interests that use it to codify corruption and preferential policies that enrich their shareholders.

I would argue that most of what we have come accustomed to the state doing could better be done in a civil, voluntary basis. But that is truly another point. What this piece is meant to deal with is reality that states are the source of an incredible amount of violence and destruction, and we often overlook because we wrap the very idea of the state up with the notion of justice.

Your comment itself seems to represent this conception in a way, as if because the state runs the sewers and water, it shouldn't be criticized or analyzed elsewhere.

Wow, the government GIVES us clean water do they now?

That is like saying slavery isn't that bad, the slave-masters did feed their slaves after all...

To be specific, this looks like the criminal justice system to me.  All depictions are literally correct except the first one.  To fit into the rest of the illustrations, it should be a police officer with a plunger.

Not sure if you are interested but they have weekly photoplasty contests over at and this fits the criteria of one of them right now. If signs were actually helpful [link] $50 bucks to the winner

Look at that Corporate dusch's arm and he may actually either be wearing either a Swastika band or a GOP Facsist band.

I love the little power symbol on the speaker's podium in the top left of the picture! Good work buddy!
cepums Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011
i would of said - use guts when you face all that crap :D

but you show it realy truely - if any of those symbols of hurt people would just stand up... you know.. the way God wanted us to be - straight up walking people... none of those simpleminded "power figures" had anything to say :)

if we talk abut NWO - you should of add taking away children.. destroying family... without that - it would be imposible to have human society at the place we are now..

but the main line is right!
so right!
and i would add - it's true not just about "complex" things :)

Everything about this is excellent, from style to execution. But the message is about 90% bullshit.
