243: Wisdom and Irony

Other messages I've seen say: "TV is Mind Control" and "Don't Be A Slave to Money." I can't say I disagree with the sentiments. I just wish there was a little bit more...art to their expression. I wonder what they have to say about the present situation, though. Have they been brainwashed into accepting violence like the rest of the country?
