Thoughts on "Pass it on" campaign...

Wow have i been neglecting this, lately.

I was reading on DKos an article on those signs that have been springing up with stuff like a picture of a firefighter and "Courage: Pass it on" as a caption. The article i read suggested some parallels to a Nazi Germany advertising campaign in an extremely similar style.

I don't really want to get into whether those comparisons are valid or not valid. I tend to think they are valid, but it is a bit of a stretch.

Anyway, with or without the Nazi parallels those signs are still fucking creepy. Want to know why? I'll give you a hint: Think about the signs you won't see.


Maybe i'm grossly underestimating the people behind this, but i bet you sure as hell won't see a sign like this:

Sometimes one million people can be wrong. Independent thought: pass it on.
