Advertising signs they con
You into thinking you’re the one
That can do what’s never been done
That can win what’s never been won
Meantime life outside goes on
All around you
BOB DYLAN: IT'S ALRIGHT, MA (I'M ONLY BLEEDING)
In the urban areas of Thailand, advertising signs are everywhere. In many places nearly every surface is covered by them. After all, everyone needs to make a living and Thailand seems to be a land of free enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Richer nations might pride themselves on the controls they've legislated on the placement of advertising signs. In California this is the case. But there is another difference. Whereas you see unrestrained posting of signs in Thailand, you also see NO graffiti anywhere. The country has not been infected by that form of expression, that visual intrusion.
