FBI J Edgar Hoover Propaganda Print by 


Hoover held control of the FBI for 48 years. An amazing thing to think about. That much control; that much power for that long.

This is just a little blend of history with the great Orwell dystopian masterpiece Nineteen Eighty-Four. Hoover seemed to fit right in both worlds, so we made an INGSOC propaganda poster that looks as if it were wheat-pasted on the side of some building generations ago. Torn, distorted, and distressed through the natural decay of time, the paper matches the harshness of Hoover’s portrait.

As Time magazine put it in 1975:

“The fact that such a man could acquire and keep that kind of power raises disturbing questions not merely about the role of a national police in a democracy, but also about the political system that tolerated him for so long.” (Time article.)

Liberty Maniacs was founded in 2003 by designer Dan McCall with the simple ambition to create amazing goods for those wanting to express their love of freedom.
