2 more informers (facts are subversive)
...in a good way. Tim & Tom.
And because it feels like ages since I posted a drawing.
[Garton Ash] explains that facts are “subversive of lies, half-truths, myths; of all those ‘easy speeches that comfort cruel men.’” “In our time,” he writes, “sources of fact-fixing are mainly to be found at the frontier between politics and the media. Politicians have developed increasingly sophisticated methods to impose a dominant narrative through the media.” That is, among other things, an excellent description of American politics in the last two years.
