Richard Nixon - a picture worth a thousand words - AM Musings
 
Picture
Demonstration Sign from the Vietnam War era
Richard Nixon is perhaps the most controversial 20th Century political figure in American history and his flawed "reign" seems to herald the modern era of  deep distrust of  leadership.  This silk screen poster on cardboard was used in an anti-Vietnam war  demonstration and is a brilliant example of political commentary.  Its prescient commentary, draftsmanship and composition are superb.  My compliments to its unknown creator.

Almost 40 years later, just change the person and it still seems relevant, when pulling strings behind the scenes affects the destiny of millions.
