Why Do You Need ‘X’?

These questions get to the heart of the issue at hand: Whose life is it anyway? If your life belongs to you, then you are free to decide how you deal with emergencies such as fire, injury, or crime. It is in your hands and no one has the right to take that away from you. If your life does not belong to you, then you are a slave whose life is in the hands of agents of the state. These agents have no interest in keeping you alive, or your possessions safe, beyond what they can extract from you through the force or fraud of state power, namely taxation.

Decided to revisit this idea with a little remix, based on something I made a while back.

Project: Posters


This is great and I love the aesthetic too!
