"Between capitalist and communist society there lies the period of the revolutionary transformation of the one into the other." ~ Karl Marx
This past week I saw a variation of the Swoosh Che image in my current edition of Communication Arts. The image is amusing because Che has become a symbol of the struggle against capitalistic exploitation. The Nike sponsorship implies that he's sold out.
Upon seeing the image this week in my current edition of Communication Arts, the image of Karl Marx in a Ronald McDonald clown suit came to mind. With the nationalizing of our banking system and other sweeping reforms being bandied about these days, I couldn't help picturing Mr. Marx removing his clown face and muttering, to no one in particular, "It's about time."
Perhaps you have a more suitable caption for this picture? Feel free to leave a comment.
