not a nice thought, though probably true nonetheless.

racism sucks
and hatred is contagious,
it is something we should change;
before it changes us.

do you think this piece is talking about racism? Or do you think I'm racist for using a swastika? I'm confused?

In this piece a I used a swastika in order to illustrate the point/my opinion on how America is like Nazi Germany. I didn't just slap the symbol on an American flag cause I thought it'd be cool :P.

And no, the fact that I used a swastika does not make me a nazi or a racist.

This piece makes a very poignant message clear. This is very cleverly done, and well thought out. Good job :D

Ah, it is so true... My home land of Massachusetts & RI aren't as bad as the rest of the country-- we were for the less Nazi-like president... :ninja:

The piece is a bit cliche`, however, stylistically the design is solid, if not ordinary. While technically solid, you did happen up (probably unintentionally) every cliche` about America's position as the sole world power today.

This is not an insult, merely an observation.

Additionally, the use of the word "truth" repeated over and over was 'too easy' and somewhat vapid. I would have suggested perhaps incorporating headlines in lieu of 'truth' would have been a better suggestion. You could have even used the names of American conflicts of aggression to assert your point. Although they are stretches in some regards to aggression such references to Vietnam, Panama and Iraq may have been more fitting (regardless of whether I agree or not).

It is easy to create in comparison to justifying said creation. Now.... you can choose to attack me for my comments... or you can merely listen and do with them as you please. I hope you put them to good use. My comments have nothing to do with my aversion to nazi-ism (please google godwin's law), nor am I even offended. I only think it was the easy way out and your talents are obviously worthy of more lofty endeavors. As someone who has compared George Bush to Pontius Pilate..... believe me when I say these things.

Best of luck to you.

I quite appreciate your comment as a matter o'fact. Your the first person to really constructively criticize any of my works and I can't begin to decribe how much I appreciate that. When I first joined deviant art I assumed that it was mostly a community of artists who critique each others work inorder to help better their own skills by opening their minds to other peoples views on their artwork. Until now I have been quite disappointed by the fact that most of the deviant art community is kids with cameras and boreing lives who think by documenting their lives and posting their pictures for anyone on the internet to see that their lives will be more satisfying. So, thank you, for sharing your cirtique with me and I would very much appreciate any other thoughts you may have on any of my other pieces. I know that one of the best ways to better your art and your skills in that art is to listen to what fellow artists have to say and what they think. Thank you so much for being one of the first deasent people to use deviant art to the fullest and most constructive of its abilities, have a good one and I hope you enjoy my work if you do take a look at it. I would also like to compliment you on your gallery, particularlly the Canadian U.S.S.R. flag, very amussing I really really like it.

I'm sorry, do you have a problem with my piece, OH! I get it your jealous because your crap doesn't say $H!T. Get some good work @$$HOLE and then you can talk smack, until then #@!? OFF! If you can't see the message I am trying to convey then you don't deserve to do the crappy work you do now. So put your money where your mouth is and remember next time you criticize someone try and make it constructive otherwise be sure your work is good enough, so until then be careful what you say to strangers.

Ahahahaha!! Its funny that you'd resort to making fun of me instead of defending your peice. Most likely because you have no idea what you're talking about and put the swastika on the flag in order to attract people and stamped "thruth" on it to be cool even though non of your peice makes sence.

First off have you looked at any of my pieces? And secondly no, yes there are people who use swastikas just to get attention, but in this case no. My point is that is America is much like the Nazi's in that they kill for no reason a lot and most of the time, along with the fact that America trys to control the entire world much like the Nazi's tried too. Thirdly I don't need to defend my piece, I am very happy with how it came out, I think you need to defend your pieces, the drawing skills are amateur at best, you really need to get off the Iraq thing, you have no variety in political happenings that you mock, they mostly all revolve around the past year or so, and your humor is dry witted, the kind of things second graders would laugh at if they could understand the politics behind the point.

I find it very funny that you think my piece makes no point, if you truly feel that way then your the one who doesn't understand what the Nazi's used the swastika to symbolize and what peope today connect the symbol too. And just so you know, when I comment on your pieces I am not making fun of them, I am giving you a critically honest critique, a little help from one artist to another. Good luck with your amateur drawings in the future!

" My point is that is America is much like the Nazi's in that they kill for no reason "

Erm. Many, many, many nations kill for no reason. But I'd like you to tell me when we never had a motive behind a kill.

"along with the fact that America trys to control the entire world much like the Nazi's tried too."

The Russians tried that and still are trying that, so why aren't you attacking them? Cause nobody would care, "oh its Russia...big deal" but "oh man! Stick it to da man in da whitehouse!". Why not compare us to Imperial Japan? Why Nazis?

" you really need to get off the Iraq thing,"

As long as theres idiots who whine about it, I shall not get off the Iraq thing.

" they mostly all revolve around the past year or so,"

Maybe because I submited them around the past year or so.

"I find it very funny that you think my piece makes no point, if you truly feel that way then your the one who doesn't understand what the Nazi's used the swastika to symbolize and what peope today connect the symbol too."

I know exactly what it stands for and thats why Im calling you ignorant for comparing it to America.
