At Rebel Renaissance, we recognize the problematic nature of this propaganda poster. However, we believe that it still has value as a tool for critical thinking and cultural analysis. The Devil's Harvest can be used to examine the history of propaganda, the politics of drug criminalization, and the ways that fear and misinformation are used to manipulate public opinion.

In addition to its political significance, The Devil's Harvest is also a fascinating piece of history and culture. It reflects the attitudes and beliefs of a bygone era, and offers a window into the social and political forces that shaped our world.

In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with it's social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
