New Logos Designs at Cafepress/FogWeaver

I recently added three designs to CafePress in the Logos* category. Tee shirts and sweatshirts for men and women, buttons, stickers, bags, wall art, and housewares are available in all three designs. Two are quotations from Frederich Nietzche, the German existential philosopher, and one is from Kipling, British warrior/poet:

Abyss Gazes Back

Battle not with monsters,
Lest you become a monster.
If you gaze into the abyss,
The abyss gazes also into you.
Frederich Nietzche

Be careful when you fight monstersBe careful
When you fight monsters,
Lest you become one.
Frederich Nietzche

who what when where why howI keep six honest serving men,
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why
And When and How and Where and Who.
Rudyard Kipling, The Elephant’s Child

The Nietzche quotes seem particularly apt at this time, given our current War on Terror and War on Drugs: do these wars really protect us, or merely deprive us of our liberties and lower us to the level of those we are fighting? Meanwhile, we are discouraged by schools, the media, religion, and law enforcement from asking pesky questions. Yet only by questioning can we arrive at the truth.
I challenge you to use these products to question the status quo and encourage others to do the same.

*Logos is the Greek word for Word; it’s also a description of many of these designs, which look like logos.
