Everything is OK: The Absurd Revolution of The Love Police

There are a million and one ways to revolt against an over-indulgent and self-destructive social and political system, but, sadly, history leaves us with the impression that a revolution requires firearms and bloodshed. Perhaps at times it has, however, in this thrilling digital age, the age of hyper-connectivity and global awareness, it is the mark of the enlightened to revolt in entirely new, creative and peaceful ways.

Keen on setting brushfires in the minds of the people, The Love Police is ‘an absurdist performance arts group which concentrates on issues such as the encroaching fear and greed in our society, [and] the police state,” says Charlie Veitch, a former neck-tie wearing worker-bee for the finance industry, turned activist.

A consortium of open-minded and wide-awake activists who directly and publicly confront the mass psychosis we call ‘society’, The Love Police is fully engaged in a new kind of revolution, shunning guerilla warfare and political coups in favor of megaphones, video cameras and  a sort of ‘peace through sarcasm’ tactic.

Their main objective is to make people think. Their chosen battlefield is a public mall or public event, and their primary tactical advantage is a lazer guided wit backed up by a keen understanding of the law and their rights.

Their victory sign: a hug.

Amongst those who have ‘awoken’ to the control matrix that dominates modern life, few muster the courage to move into a life of action and activism, and fewer still are able to completely change the game by taking genuinely creative social action, that which begs the masses to think, reflect, and stop with business as usual.

“You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men.” -Max Beerbohm

Have a look at some of their most dubious and thought provoking works, but, you have been warned… ”Smiling is bad for the economy!  Do not smile!”

“Thinking is boring!  Thinking is hard work and it is not worth the energy!”

“Hey Mr. CCTV Operator… You have a very small wee wee…”

Watch more of their thought provoking, hilarious and truthful works at The Love Police and their YouTube channel and please share your ideas for a creative revolution in the comments below.

    You do know that Charlie Veitch completely sold out and refuted all of the Love Police work don’t you?

    It’s a nice idea, but be careful about spreading the meme.
    It was a probably a setup all along.

    Veitch is still a worker bee – a complete sell-out.

    Charlie Veitch was an inside job.
