Political Graphics by John & Yoko

I am interested in political graphics and especially those used to try to convey aggregate data. So every once in a while I will post items that provide good examples. This one is doubly interesting because it is a photograph too.


John & Yoko say: "U.S.A. SURPASSES ALL THE GENOCIDE RECORDS! KUBLA KHAN MASSACRES 10% IN NEAR EAST. SPAIN MASSACRES 10% OF AMERICAN INDIANS. JOSEPH STALIN MASSACRES 5% OF RUSSIANS. NAZIS MASSACRE 5% OF OCCUPIED EUROPEANS AND 75% OF EUROPEAN JEWS. U.S.A. MASSACRES 6.5% OF VIETNAMESE & 75% OF AMERICAN INDIANS. FOR CALCULATIONS & REFERENCES WRITE TO: P.O. BOX 180, NEW YORK, NY 10013." [Image © Barrie Wentzel/Lionsgate.]
