I wrote a few years ago that “it takes effort to be positive. Being negative is easy.”
I still think that’s true.
That could be translated as ‘to be the bigger person is never easy’. It takes effort to swallow how you’re feeling.
Today’s cartoon is about that.
I tend to bury my head in the sand when it comes to censorship, but when some moron censors art I get really annoyed! This cartoon is a reaction to witnessing an artist I admire have their artwork removed from Instagram for ‘breaching guidelines’.
Obviously I am not condoning violence of any kind, this is clearly a metaphor. Fred is literally telling ‘Censorship’ where to go!
It also makes me sad to realise (although I should have already known) that social media is the 12 certificate, watered down, spoon-fed crap we have grown to expect from the internet age.
