An interesting picture I found about Capitalism in a pyramidal form. Looks pretty old though.

Oh...that is beautiful. I like the preists 'We fool you' and how at the bottom both Workers and Farmers are united under the Red Banner. Great stuff.

oddly enough, I recall getting this picture in my History12 class quite a while back. Although it was slighty different without the bag of money, and capitalism at the top.

That poster (and many like it) were put up in socialist towns of Washington state, such as Equality, WA. They're gone, now, but just think of how that must have been back then.

Speaking of "we fool you".....the Russians had a saying back in the old Soviet days about their newspapers which, in English, were The News (Izvestia) and The Truth (Pravda). They said, "The News isn't the truth, and The Truth isn't the news."

Wow.... interesting to say the least. I think I saw that picture when I went to Washington DC.

Although I do agree with the message it is trying to portray.

I saw that poster in my history book. There were radical towns that annexed themselves from the US government in the late 19th century and lived entirely by socialism and Communism.

Not by much, they haven't. This poster is still an essentially true representation of reality in a capitalist society.

And 'Equality, WA' sounds like a cool address to have.
