The Socialist Realism type of art was intended to appeal to the working class of the Soviet Union. It probably did. It was a reaction to the elitist art aimed at the privileged that had dominated art pretty much forever.Personally, I find it appealing as a working class guy. I think it is interesting that the Republican party is adopting images appealing to working class people --- probably reflecting the increasing influence of working class and lower middle class in the Republican party.It is intended to appeal to the working class guy, and for the same reasons as in the Soviet Union. The Soviet leadership didn't give two spits about the common man, but the retained power for as long as they did by paying lip service to the idea.Similarly, Romney and Ryan want to screw millions of people under 55 (like myself) out of Medicare benefits that we've been paying for all our working lives, plus kick millions of seniors and children currently on Medicaid to the curb. All in order to fund tax cuts for gazillionaires.It doesn't surprise me a bit that that Romney and Ryan have copied Soviet tactics to mislead regular people.
