A friend just showed me the “Untouchables” or “Los Intocables” series of images by the Cuban born Fabrica photographer Erik Ravelo. They’re very powerful images and push a lot of hot buttons. They’re a good summary of what a pathetic species we are. Of course there’s so many more reasons why we suck, but this is a good start..
Here’s a few photographs from the series, with my comments added.
Sex tourists in Asia and child trafficking.
This image created a lot of talk online. Pedophile priests summed up in one perfect image. I used to enjoy pulling apart all religions but it’s not very sporting to shoot fish in a barrel.
McDonalds creating fat kids. I accept capitalism, but let’s not allow psychopathic corporations to do as they wish with our kids. It’s easy to say “blame the parents” and I do blame them too, but lets ban junk food advertising, tax it like cigarettes, and ban junk food drive thrus. Healthy food should be fast and cheap, junk food should be slow and expensive.
The soldier has a Syrian flag on his helmet, so this must be about the Syrian invasion by the West sponsored rebels. We in the West don’t bring freedom and democracy, we bring death and plunder. We’re experts at it. I believe our next target is Iran. Bringing freedom and democracy to your country is a nice way of saying we’re going to bomb the shit out of your cities and kill your children.
I could go on ranting and raving about society and the psychopaths that control and manipulate us, but I have a vegetable garden that needs weeding!
