You just got me to listen to a techno song--twice. Once to see the lyrics while the song played, a second time to see the original video. Not my kind of music.
"Integral" by the Pet Shop Boys--it's taken straight from "We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin (the "first" dystopian novel). The song makes me think of "Another Brick...2" by Floyd (lyrics, not music).
Read a short review of the book here (no "www." required):
That is a really clever cartoon. You could not have picked a better QR code as commentary for "modern" times. How did you know about it? If you picked it at random, it will blow my mind.
FWIW, I don't have a device that reads QR codes. Donkeyrock's comment pointed me in the right direction.

Gives a new meaning to
"We never 'talk' anymore."
Met up with a friend I hadn't seen in 7 years. Went to the local Starbucks for coffee and conversation. Place was like a library. Everyone, even those at the same table, had their heads buried in their iPhones.
Sunday went to the local mall. Almost got run over by a mother and her two teenagers - all walking along with their heads buried in their techno-gear.

Scanned the code, checked out the result.

The QR was random pull from google images. I have no way to know where that visual link leads.
Sometimes, randomness serves.

Obviously Devin is the only one qualified to comment. LQTMST.
Our formal language is dying, hell the government schools don't even teach it. You can't outlaw it but I'm sure Barry would love to tax it. He's the FPOTUS UK
