Brevity is the name of the game nowadays, as our culture has been conditioned for 70 years to make major decisions based on 30-second commercials and
easy-to-read ads, decisions like medicating our children or electing our president/prime minister. To that end, if a picture is worth a thousand
words, then a well-composed viral meme on the topic of civil liberties is worth a thousand speeches, YouTube videos and marathon message board threads
in its ability awaken the sleeping masses and get them researching, learning, talking and eventually acting.
Below are just a few of my recent favorites; please share yours, preferably embedded. "External Image" links are often times ignored.
If you're unsure about how to embed a picture, click here for instructions.
PLEASE DO NOT ARGUE ABOUT THE TOPICS OF THE MEMES; if you wish to debate the topic of a meme, please start a new thread and link to it in your
post, or link to an existing thread.
Please feel free to point out *factually* incorrect information in a meme, as the whole point is to spread TRUTH and not movement-discrediting
misinformation; but if you do so, please cite something credible correcting the facts, and not merely offering differing opinion or extrapolated
logic. An 80 page thread that's 70% commentary, arguing and snarking, and only 30% actual memes, will guarantee that no one will see the memes past
the first few pages.

NOTE: you cannot right-click to save the finished meme image, but you can save to your computer by appending i.qkme.me/ to the
alphanumerical part of the URL. For example, if your meme's finished URL is quickmeme.com/meme/3t0mzi/ then copy just the "3t0mzi" part (whatever
your meme's code actually is), add .jpg to that code (as in 3t0mzi.jpg) and add that other URL onto the front of it (as in i.qkme/3t0mzi.jpg) The
link will then go to a page showing nothing but your meme, and you CAN right-click and save this image in its full size.
