It Is Dangerous To Read Newspapers

Political cartoon in response to a poem.

I’ve made a political cartoon in response to Margaret Atwood’s poem, It Is Dangerous to Read Newspapers.

Despite the poem being published in 1968, there is significance to this poem in our current political landscape. From the discrimination in North Carolina to the war on Iraq, there are unjust things happening in the world and sometimes, we can’t really do anything about it. That could be due to social disparity, wealth and income inequality or maybe because we’re just too lazy.
