SCALE TIPPING

Shepard Fairey has released his latest print ‘Scale Tipping’ to bring more awareness to the affect that corporation donations have on democracy.

“I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in but it affects all Americans by ensuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people but that idea has eroded with the favours owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions.

A portion of the proceeds from the ‘Scale Tipping Services’ print will go to two organisations who are fighting against political corruption and for campaign finance reform – rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. Check out their sites and the quotes below from Rootstrikers’ Lawrence Lessig and United Republic’s Josh Silver. These organisations are doing great work so please support them! Thanks for caring.” – Shepard Fairey
