Seems like the American revolution is picking up some steam but isn’t being broadcasted by any media stations anywhere within America, which gives off a very 1984 feel. There is a huge collaboration of artists and designers that are creating more compelling slogans and signs to open the eyes of the entire nation.
One of those projects is Occupy George, a series of five stamps that place an infographic about earnings disparities and how wealth is distributed in America directly on the famous symbol of wealth itself- this is one bad ass idea.
The project has been pulling all-nighters for about a week, printing on more $1 bills, and then exchanging them at Occupy Wall Street protests, getting more bills to modify each time.
Apparently in America defacing a dollar bill is considered a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code, which says that “whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.” The law is enforced by the Secret Service; pretty scary stuff.
