This is what a country on war-footing looks like: military symbols in breakast-food ads, complete with imprecations to eat more grains for Defense; moms in uniform saluting the indistinct concept of authority to pledge herself to the Breakfast Front; Jim the Vitamin B Speed Freak forming the V for Victory with his drafting tools – they’re helping to “keep our defense plants rolling out the machines for victory!”

Modern eyes might scoff: one country’s defense is another’s aggression, the plants are owned by big profit-making parasites, the machines are the problem – can’t fight a war with flowers, brother – and “victory” is a meaningless concept; fascism is an idea, and you can’t defeat an idea!

Which is why it is good that Modern Eyes do not have to suffer ads like these.
