Sometimes we feel so annoyed by every-little-tiny-stupid-things, the pressure is through the roof. It is good to let your frustration out and protest against whatever is bothering you and too much to handle! New Yorker Seth, runs the “Dude With Sign” Instagram account, has objected to it all—from people who say “no offense” before saying something offensive.
You need to make it in the professional street protest league, just need cardboard and a marker.
These hilarious signs by this guy are something to learn from. He is a Vilnius-based connoisseur of the contemporary political and cultural climate. He shared his views on freedom of opinion and what role it has in the Dude With Sign project.
Dovydas Skarolskis told Bored Panda that freedom of speech is a fundamental part of liberal democracy.
It should be given to citizens of the free world.“However, there has been a variety of political regimes that restricted both individual’s personal opinions, and one’s ability to form one. The dystopian shadows depicted by George Orwell and Aldous Huxley still haunt us in the 21st century.
On the other hand, living in a society is already a restriction. Dovydas explains: “I can’t just arrive naked at the shopping mall just because I want to.
There are many public norms, cultural traditions, laws, and many other social institutions that repress our behavior.” It explains why so much freedom lurks on the internet. “The internet is a liberating tool, and millions of anonymous comments allow authors to express their views that otherwise remain silent in the daylight.
He says: Politics start when you step into the corridor outside your apartment. “It comes down to the questions like who has to clean it, and whether it needs a repair.”
Dovydas comments: “Dude With Sign highlights the online habits that we don’t think of that much because we go with the flow.
Dude With Sign not only talks about the freedom of opinion and speech, but he also encourages people to take a step back and look at themselves from the outside.Only when you start using your head do you stand apart from the blunt mass and become an independent thinker.
According to Dovydas, an ability to make fun of yourself is crucial in our times. “Dude With Sign is an artist full of irony.
It’s funny to share his pictures when he asks you not to do that.But making fun of yourself and thinking of how the receiver of your action or art would feel is far greater freedom and happiness than going on a shopping spree naked. ”
According to the American Civil Liberties Union, your rights “are strongest in what is known as ‘traditional public forums,’ such as streets, sidewalks, and parks.
” That means you have a right to legally march in the streets as long as you’re not in anyone’s private property and you’re not blocking access to buildings or interfering with other properties.
Always remember that even if The First Amendment prohibits restrictions based on the content of speech, “it does not mean that the Constitution completely protects all types of speech in every circumstance,” especially if you declare something controversial.
