[Wealth Bondage]: On Political Visuals and the Decay of Lying

Teach critical thinking, and teach with caricature, simple images,
paradox, soundbite-style aphorisms, kitschy images in the vocabulary of
popular culture, rely on disjunction, force thought into the tiniest
crevice in the closed mind. Force two disjunctive thoughts into the
Consumer Mind and watch the little machine tear itself to pieces. Two
slightly disjunctive images are how three dimensions are created from
flat pictures. A third dimension is one too many for most Americans.

Is it any wonder that ‘critical thinking’ in education has long been under attack?
