communism

        It’s quite briliant of Dr. Strangelove to come to classes, sometimes wearing some sort of symbol on himself. Whether it is a koufia or a Hammer and a Sickle t-shirt, this kind of symbolism tends to define whoever is baring them. However, he showed us that it does not always mean so. He is not a Communist. Despite the fact that by wearing such a t-shirt, he’s probably being prejudiced by others as a Commie, it might not be necessarilly true. When he wears them, people think that he is affiliated with so and so, but the reality of the matter is that he isn’t. It’s simply just like advertising. Products or services publically displayed in the media do not always seem to be what they really are. The meaning of things is not as clear and transperant when it comes to marketing.
