Fear China

I apologise for slacking off with the blog lately. It's not easy balancing your work life and running several blogs on the internet at the same time.

Here's a very interesting video I found from another blog.



It's an ad campaign that attacks the American government's wasteful spending of tax dollars. The advert uses China as a backdrop and is presented like a Chinese propaganda ad. Although it might not be the message the advert intended to give out, but you cannot help feeling there's some sort of underlying message that harps fear into the viewers about China taking over and the demise of the United State. In fact it isn't so subtle, if you look at the imagery of chairman Mao and communist propaganda posters. It certainly brings back the good old cold war hysteria.
