We are always searching for solutions to the problems which face those of us who live in Washington State. Due to the recent explosion in addict/homeless camps throughout the state capital of Olympia, and the relentless effort by some Evergreen State College students and affiliated organizations to recruit more drug addicts to Olympia for the low incarceration rates and tons of free stuff, we proposed converting the Evergreen State College into a local homeless camp (see article here).
There are many unique features and community benefits which would result from implementing this policy proposal (detailed here). It also seems natural to review holistically the Evergreen State College environment and identify where Evergreen needs help to be optimized for inclusion and greater acceptance of addict/homeless camps. We will continue to make proposals which would help facilitate this obvious and necessary transition from an institution of radical indoctrination, nationally known and recognized for suppressing free speech and famous for the local student bat patrol to enforce campus mob rules.
In this community spirit, we have commissioned a more inclusive, accurate, and accepting logo for Evergreen College which appropriately captures the future of this fine institution while still retaining the essence and herstory of the original logo. Let us draw your attention to a few of the highlights of this proposed logo change.
With the escalating volume of free needles distributed in Olympia (and found on the ground in every local green space, park and sidewalk) the original tree image was maintained. We recreated the image using the iconic abandoned syringe, as an iconic item commonly found in every greenspace and sidewalk in the ecosystem. Rather than deny the truth, we have carefully integrated the needle into the image of an evergreen tree. This symbolized the perfect harmony between the trees that fill the 1000 acres of the Evergreen campus and the discarded needles which fill the spaces in between.
In the upper right, we locate three blue tarp shelters. The blue is ubiquitous to the many addict/homeless camps which dot the landscape today, and hint at the waters of Puget Sound which lap nearby.
Finally, we add just a touch of urban noir, rebellious humanity and the survival instinct by including a classic urban flair burn barrel in the lower left-hand corner. These are more commonly found in the urban environments of Seattle and Olympia, but as the campus welcomes new addict/homeless refugees, it is likely these burn barrels will be located throughout the campus providing a warming place for conversation and ecologically questionable removal of waste. Some have suggested that we add the classic Anarchist symbol on the barrel representing the generations of rebellious Evergreen graffiti artists who choose to decorate the campus and nearby community with this image under cover of darkness and away from prying eyes.
Feel free to make your submissions, if you believe you have a better one, and we can display them here and share them with others as well. Together, we can help Evergreen College move down towards its inevitable future. What an interesting journey it will be.
OUR CONSTITUTION BEGINS WITH THE PHRASE “WE THE PEOPLE.” IT WAS THE FOUNDER’S INTENT THAT GOVERNMENT BE CREATED BY THE PEOPLE, TO SERVE THE PEOPLE.
