The "Sedation Of Millions" print is inspired by the title of my favorite Public Enemy album It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. I think the biggest problem in America is the indifference and complacency about important issues that results from much of the population being perpetually hypnotized by conspicuous consumption, social media, entertainment, and self-medication. Using sedation and escapism for relief from the rat race might make us less aware(blissfully ignorant) but also less empowered to improve our role within the rat race... a vicious cycle of cause and effect.
