Aleks in a nutshell (or “My awesome son”)

I sent him this on Facebook because I knew he’d find it interesting, being well -- Aleks:


His reply:


I don’t really understand what he said, but I like that his thinking is always pretty out-of-the-box.  This is the same kid who threw a mild tantrum at the age of 8 because he couldn’t vote, insisting (correctly) that he “understands the issues better than most grown-ups!”

It reads (to me), like the spiders' (the proletariat) dreams are (almost) washed away (by the waterspout), waiting for the sun to dry it out, including the nasty rain (the bourgeoisie). Waiting long enough, the water and the rain is gone, and the sun, every spider desperately longed for, has gained complete control. Spiders are unhappy, the only hope, the sun, has provided false hopes.

Replace the sun by a Leninist/Stalinist party and there we go with a pretty good 'Bolshevik propaganda poster'. That's my interpretation of the image and Aleks' reply. Could be entirely wrong, though.
