Update 2: No War - It's Time To 3VOLve (t-shirt design + Sticker)

Hello DP.

Seeing as today is 9/11 and we have a potential war brewing, I decided to make a t-shirt today that I will wear attending my local "ReThink911" event and I just wanted to share the design with all of you. Many of us are creative and I encourage using your creativity in simple and affordable ways.

Peace & Love!

And here's how it came out:

great design!

"The belief is worthless if the fear of social and physical punishment overrides the belief."

so..

Where can I buy a shirt and a few stickers? Straight to the point, but really all encompassing. We must move forward and address the way humans are to interact with each other. Through collective force/aggression or voluntary interaction?

How should we interact?

Take a look at the comments below. There's a way of interacting that just feels better than the other. It's that simple. Kindness, understanding and respect towards one another, leads to spontaneous moments of coming together and resonating with a positive focus. I simply put some pixels on my screen, typed some words and shared it with others to do with as they please. Create ripple effects of ideas.

thats cool

thanks for sharing
I do have one thing I would change though
the drippy word WAR,I would make red,that way it looked like
blood was dripping from it
but I like...I like
D

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Thanks again D!

Actually, one of my earlier versions had the white letters but splatters of "blood" matching the red over them. However, I found the visual focused too much on "the problem" aspect of the design rather than the "solution" below it.

What would the Founders do?

Thank you!

Updated Post with Bumper Sticker!

Sorry but there is actually

Sorry but there is actually justified use of violence both individually and as a country/militia. When King George and his red coats tried to stomp on the founders when they declared their independence, the founders - those that yearned to be free - fought back. This was called a war - a revolutionary war. Horrible as it was, it was a justified war.

As a veteran, I'm pro-peace but realize that there is a need for righteous violence.

______
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

The difference

Is between self defense and aggression.

Precisely the reason for the call the "EVOLve"

beyond the old mentality of justified violence towards fellow human beings.

The world has changed since those days. Our ability to create solutions is far outpacing the need for violence.

Past Wars were justified in relation to the mentality of people Then. That's no longer the case today when every war is full of deceit and lies all but for the profit of major corporations.

In my honest opinion, there is nothing righteous about killing my fellow man.

Got it, so the next time

Got it, so the next time someone breaks into your home, rapes your wife then I'd like to see you set the example by doing your own little peaceful sit-in as your family is attacked.

______
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

So KILLING them is your only option then?

Is that what you're saying? The only way to stop a rapist is to murder them and become LOWER than them?

If the US wasn't currently involved in multiple

undeclared wars, I'd agree with you.

Sadly, that is not the case.

I don't agree with these wars

Self defense, and the defense of your property are not the same as these current wars.

______
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Then why did you use rape as an example to justify your view?

?

Looks great man ! Can't agree

Looks great man ! Can't agree more. If you wanna send me one I'd be more than happy to wear it when I perform, I'm a musician and tour all the time and i need more anti-war stuff to wear lol. Going to Japan next week def. wanna let em know not all Americans are as big of buffoons as our leaders.

I appreciate it! Thanks!

You can take that design to a t-shirt shop and they'll be able to get it onto a shirt for you. Shipping from Canada may get more expensive than getting it made. Cost me about $35 (shirt included).

PEACE!

perfecto!

now, if one wants to be a bit more biting, particularly against L vs. R bowel 'movement liberals,' as a guilt-nudge, can add a caption circularly around top perimeter/circumference of the same logo that reads:

Hey 'liberals' I thought y'all believed in evolution: so EvoLve!

hahaha thanks!

That would be quite funny but not sure if that would be in line with "3VOLving" on my part ;)

I like it, I agree, ...

Let's do away with the "cave man", "religious" (we know better), and profiting "bankers" way of "thinking". It is soooo simple - change your way of thinking and the whole world becomes a better place.

Thanks!

Very true h.w.a.! We have all been conditioned to believe in a false reality imposed on us by manufacturing Fear and Hate towards one another. But once you see through it all, you realize that YOU are a part of the change and Fear is just an illusion. It's just an Emotion of that which is unknown. Slowly all the dots begin to connect and you just see the infantile psychopathy in those who govern. It no longer has a place in the World that I AM co-creating with all those who've woken up and it's looking quite beautiful so far.

You said it so....

correctly! Thanks! :)
