Indoctrinate them while they're young! Actually this campaign is one we wouldn't mind our kid being a target of. With wartime home front propaganda posters as his inspiration, artist Joe Wirtheim has been creating what he describes as a "fake propaganda campaign for new, American home-front values". Not only do we like the messages, we think he's really captured the spirit and style of these historic posters.

Above are a few of our favorites. You can see more in Joe's Etsy shop ($12 each) or his website, The Victory Garden of Tomorrow.

What propaganda posters would you like to see? "Plastic Bags are the Enemy!" "Cloth Diapers for Peace!"
