Bird of Freedom Cartoon

The Bird of Freedom cartoon was inspired by Austrian songwriter Georg Danzer’s song “Freedom is a wondrous animal”. The cartoon is centred on liberation from digital control, which in my perception has felt like a prison ever faster and ever more strongly since 2018.

In the meantime, I have come to the conclusion that we should take all words that begin with the prefix “smart” with a grain of salt and question them critically.

I ask myself more and more often: Is it true that these devices can listen to everything we do, day and night and wherever we are (e.g. smartphone), can read out data and thus know exactly when and for which purpose we use energy and at what time we are at home or not) (e.g. smartmeter) and can monitor and control us to the greatest possible extent (e.g. smarthome, smartcities)?

Are the rumours true that a social credit system à la China is already in the planning in Europe?

Since I am a thoroughly freedom-loving and responsible person, I regard the bird of freedom as a symbol for our liberation from digital surveillance and control and the discovery of our personal and human sovereignty.
