(NOTE: I've updated the chart in another design to take events of 18-19 December into account: [link]
The idea for this design actually woke me up. I flashed on the old "enemy identification charts" that were used in WW1 and WW2. Clearly the CIA, NSA and DHS will need something similar in 2012 with NDAA and all these wonderful new laws.
So this design starts with the ironic - that any normal person can be considered a terrorist. As you scan down it goes to the sardonic, then radical, then seditious, and finally ending with the absurd (with a shout out to the "Aquapation" on Lake Merritt). And even some of the absurd isn't that absurd - unfortunately.
Truth is, people like Paul Revere and Ben Franklin would be considered terrorists by the new standards. And the British considered the Colonial soldiers to be terrorists in 1776 because of their tactics - much as our current regime seems to view anyone with a dissenting view.
I tried to keep enough humor (Charlie Sheen ... winning!) in this to make it enjoyable and to balance the grim reality of what's happening.
