Part of the way that people form concrete understandings of ideologies is in how these ideologies present themselves. While communism and capitalism lack tangible identities in the form of flags, their less nebulous real-world applications don’t, and this is because it helps people to have something visual to pin to those collections of ideas. in trying to articulate what they believe in. When Americans think of the American identity, the first and foremost symbol that comes to mind isn’t the stock market or the Wild West or the statue of liberty but the American flag. Due to this way in which people think, DMSG’s members decided to create flags to represent our views. Below, we’ll display our newfangled flags for both Surplus Statism and Reviewism, respectively, as well as what the flags represent in each ideology.
Surplus Statism’s flag:
All in all, we are very thrilled to present these flags on this website and want to thank our resident illustrator for helping to visually articulate our belief systems. These flags may be modified slightly in the future, to better encompass different aspects of our belief systems or to become more visually striking, and this article will be updated accordingly.
