Posters For The Paranoid

Over on Boing Boing readers have created some brilliant posters mocking London's insane and stupid anti-terrorism campaign. The gist of the real campaign is "suspect everyone." Apparently you should report your neighbors for even looking at the creepy surveillance cameras around them which of course makes it impossible to even discuss the idea that you might be living in a police state.

A much better approach would be the Keep Calm and Carry On message along with an added dose of "stay rational." Your risk of dying in a plausible terrorist attack is much lower than your risk of dying by car accident, by walking across the street, by drowning, by fire, by falling, or by being murdered.

Mine would be:

A bomb won't go off here because someone was SKEPTICAL.

Trung, I think they are openly borrowing from Orwell.

Fab, you could probably work for the ministry of truth.
