When I first saw this picture, my eye was drawn to the sign in the lower left-hand corner.  The words “Democracy is not for sale” leapt out at me.  My first thought was “Of course it’s for sale.  Everybody knows and accepts that these days.”  But it kept nagging at me.  Something was wrong.

Finally it hit me: Democracy is not for sale because it’s already been sold.  There’s nothing left to buy.

ForSale

Be seeing you.
