Most of the quite obvious, even sometimes impressive wall/building murals in Portland are on the inner Eastside industrial area. Recently, I came across this one out in a depressed part of Portland. The mural is by Pablo Garcia. The location is on the side of a notorious Nude Bar, with some degree of traffic flow to appreciate the grand astronaut. I guess Pablo’s working the outer circuit of available canvases….
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
