This sticker was pasted inside a telephone booth outside a Richmond 7-11. It seems to intentionally aggregate the most common exploitative ideas in society into one place.

“Have your lack of privilege or poor choices fucked you over? Obviously. You’re using a pay phone. Give us a call, and for a small fee, we’ll beg God to change things for you (since he’s obviously done a poor job thus far). We’d also be glad to give you a loan at exorbitant interest rates until things are looking better.

There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? – V
