Libertarian Halloween Costume: Banksy's Flower Chucker
I may have found my Halloween costume for 2009- with an awesome libertarian twist.
It's to dress up as the "masked anarchist" throwing a bouquet of flowers instead of a bomb or Molotov cocktail in a classic work by the English graffiti artist, Banksy.
The work is entitled "The Flower Chucker."
It is visually powerful and philosophically poignant because it seems to espouse peace, love, and non-violent means to the ends of political revolution.
I would love to be that masked anarchist throwing a bouquet of flowers for Halloween because I would love to be that masked anarchist throwing a bouquet of flowers.
If my life's work could be summarized in that picture, I would die a happy man.
