Embossed spines

Politicians are very clever with imagery. Place the Leader in front of shelves stocked with volumes of books, and the implication is clear: he is a scholar, a man of God, trustworthy and pure. These things stick out to me like a sore thumb. Just like the synthetic echoes on the sound system in the mosque, which turns mundane ramblings into a profoundly powerful speech. Ordinary people need to stop falling for these clever, manipulative techniques used to sway opinion.
