The Third World War Will Be Fought Over Information

In Brian Moore's update of WWII propaganda posters, nations are brought down not by armies and guns, but by blogs and tweets. Hang one up and show your support for net neutrality, Wikipedia, and information pirates.

In an imagined WWIII, our governments try to discourage us from blogging and tweeting, while troops are encouraged to seed their MP3s. And I'm sort of longing for a Rosie the Riveter poster with the subtle Reddit alien badge.

Moore plans to sell the posters, with 25% of proceeds going to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

The Normal Rockwell poster on Freedom of Speech is a classic. I get a little misty every time I see it. Nice re-purposing.

I like the Rosie the Riveter poster too: while Pa Overclock was serving on the U.S.S. Yorktown in the Pacific, the woman who after the war would become Ma Overclock was working as a riveter on a Grumman plant in Columbus Ohio making Hellcats.
