Edit: Flag is going to be preburned and sprayed to avoid problems with the popo. Sorry I did not make this clear.
I'm supposed to do a visual project on the book 1984. I was figuring I would partially burn an American flag and then spray paint "One nation under CCTV" on it or something to that extent. Kinda cliche I know. Any ideas on anything better I could do or a better phrase to spray onto it?
Edit: I know that burning an American Flag would be offensive to some but this is a very liberal school and part of the project based on how Oceania would have used propaganda when they assimilated the U.S. I'll double check that everyones cool with it before I do it. I intend to also use the fact that I can burn and mutilate a flag as a testament to our socialites freedoms regardless of how screwed we are socially which makes us at least one step better then a dystopia.
Many people are just making mix cd's of rage agianst the machine songs with lyric sheets and then just showing how newspeak would quickly edit it in stages to nothingness.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

yes but don't worry they can't figure out pig-latin which will allow us to stage a relatively organized rebellion
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Burning an American flag doesn't sound like something a person would want to do right now.

That's all I have to say though.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

ok
here's what you do
1. Take a fork, preferably metal.
2. Put some tomato sauce on it.
3. Let tomato sauce on fork dry.
4. Turn it in and call it: "The Spaghetti Massacre."

Best part is that its the final for the class. The teacher is going to the Bahamas as soon as term ends and did not feel like reading 150 papers while on vacation. I think I will go with "Slavery Is Freedom". Dunno why I dint think of that. Doh! What about the stenciling? Is there a site that will help me design or print one?

Yer... I mean America isn't nearly as bad as UK for CCTV (1 camera for every 4 people)

Sorry, I actually have no ideas, I'm real tired, if I think of anything I'll let you know

No. Don't do that. Especially not with the American flag behind it. You should make up what you think the Oceania flag would look like and spray paint that. Then, in black ink put "Big Brother is Watching You"

Brave New World> 1984. Wouldn't the future governments realize that sedation and desensitization would control society much more efficiently than by bullying and fear?

i love 1984, orwell did a great job. the stenciling is a awesome idea, but make up the flag, some people may take offense to a burnt american flag y'know?

What makes you think the future governments would use different tactics than those that have worked for centuries?

Before answering that, I would like to know why you think that those tactics have worked?

Quote by st.stephen
Why would you burn an American flag when it was in the UK?

Sorry edited it to explain why. Oceania also took over the U.S. in the book though and part of the project is based on propaganda and what type of propaganda they might have exposed us freedom loving Americans to.

Well burning an American flag would seem like a supportive move for Oceania, I would think, because you're burning your vestiges of freedom.

And sorry, I'm not trying to troll, I just think you could do a more creative project with such a great text as 1984, instead of going for "shock value" and burning a flag.

Burn this flag instead. It's more correct to the book.

Its supposed to be supportive of Oceania. Its supposed to dipcit the type of propaganda the party would have used when they took over the U.S. in the book since it is never depicted in the book how America is taken over.
