Pins help you to differentiate yourself from unwanted personal connotations – they protect you from undesirable reproaches. In the wide range of pseudo and semi- political amulets people wear, the unique pins of the Protest Supplies Store’s Antagonizers series, are not meant for differentiation or protection, but to start a conversation; opening up controversial domains to be interacted with on an interpersonal level. Very unrepresented, but pressingly present political topics, rather than the ‘standard’ post- modern political stances, are imaged in this series.

There are winners in this ‘life lottery’: The Rich. They enjoy wealth, social security, and power whilst the poor struggle to keep themselves and their families alive. The only way of ending wealth inequality is to change the system. As Jean-Jacques Rousseau once said “When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich.’’ – So, dig in!
