While I do not fully agree with the comment being made here, this critique of government and its supposed treatment of “the poor” and “freedom” is great to unpack under political and visual sociology. Who are “the poor” represented in this picture? What “freedom” is being referenced? What’s the link between poverty and freedom and the role of government in-between the two? I love this street art for the many conversations it opens up.
