Neoconservatives (Neocons) traditionally espouse the idea that America has a duty to promote its form of democracy throughout the world by any means, including military action. They, like the "hawks" during the Vietnam War, subscribe to the domino effect. For example, letting Iraq and Afghanistan fall to extremists will cause other close-by regions to do the same. Yet, fighting extremism is much subtler and requires a lot of diplomacy and understanding of each situation. Many see the world in shades of gray. Neocons see the world in black and white.

This poster takes the popular internet meme of cute cat pictures known as LOLCATS, and turns it on its head. Instead of cute and cuddly, the kitty in this poster is angry and uses the pidgin English associated with LOLCAT, to convey its anger.

The posters in this series reflect the conflicts the American political system has been experiencing during the turbulent period between 2010-2018. They are meant to encourage an exploration and a dialogue about the cultural minefield we now find ourselves in.
