Will the West Survive?

A Photoshop idea that popped into my head recently. I know it’s a bit stale (and a tad cringy) now in 2019 as we’re all now wondering if President Trump (or similar Populist/Nationalist leaders) will succeed or not … but I had to get it out of my system. Plus however it all turns out it was a great feeling to at least have the hope for a time at the very least.

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive…”

America First in Clown World?

Description

What’s the point of the “America First” slogan if #FreeSpeech is gone, we’ve lost control of our government and the country’s been turned into a clown world?

Background

Last couple weeks have been pretty rough w/the increased censorship online, immigration going from emergency to nightmare, President Trump seemingly abducted or lulled to sleep by non-MAGA people in his administration and the other usual issues in the news/culture accelerating towards the cliff at break neck speed. I’m not an Alex Jones cult follower but I recognize that his voice being taken away, along with plenty of others is not a good sign at all – especially when the people being banned/deplatformed tell WAY more truth than the mainstream news outlets etc. This isn’t my usual style/approach to artwork but the idea just popped in my head and I just went with it.

God save America … if it’s still possible.
