Tying in to an earlier thread on this forum,
the one on Metamorality.
There is a government information ad that warns that your car
is likely to get crushed if you don't insure it. And they're not
messing. According to the Association of British Insurers some
45,000 cars and vans were crushed last year. The state is taking
private property and destroying it. (And not even recycling or
reusing at that, but that is a secondary issue.)
So looking at the framework, the underlying symbolism of this
campaign is that our property is state property. But if you then
also look at the proposals for compulsory ID cards, the presumed-consent
organ donation and a compulsory DNA database, the underlying message
extends beyond our property and to our very bodies are state property
and if we do not do what the state says we will be crushed...
numbers of uninsured cars crushed
