In keeping with yesterday’s theme, I have attached another illustration depicting a more recent use of propaganda, this time in Libya. The image was created to support Muammar Gaddafi, the previous leader of Libya during the recent civil war (2011). Gaddafi, who called himself the ‘Brotherly Leader and Guide of the Revolution’ is depicted as defending Libya with a sword and shield inscribed with various values including justice. Surrounding him, are many world leaders drawn as devils, including the President of the United States, the United Nations, and the Prime Minister of Britain. They are attacking with pens, symbolizing their use of doctrine, policy, and laws that they ‘illegally’ applied to Libya.
In this case, the people were able to discover the truth and led a successful revolution.
