Are you on Twitter? Follow this guy — he’s brilliant.
And this guy too — he’s probably done two dozen signs by now.

This is from @Thorbites (100+ signs in the last 2 years)— I may have posted it before but it’s important. “Do Not Obey in Advance” is the First and most important chapter in “On Tyranny” by Timothy Snyder. I think the reason signs like this are exceptional when they should be the norm has to do with its being a social aberration and people thinking it’s illegal when it’s not. I’ve put up and photographed 7,486 signs on freeways now (since 2003) and law enforcement’s had plenty of opportunities to put a stop to my antics. The reason they don’t is because they know it’s my right to do it and that any attempt at prosecution would be a waste of time and money. (Of course I have the privilege of being white and living on the west coast, lowering my chances of being punished by authorities in some extra-judicial fashion substantially.) I wish I had the resources to better organize, hire lawyers to write briefs, etc. but I don’t. So until someone who does swoops in and saves me by taking this off my hands, I’ll continue to do what I can to assuage any fears you might have. Our nation needs to hear more from its people and less from its moneyed interests, and y’all are missing out on a hell of a lot of fun.
