Hi, I met Angel Boligan in Cuba in early 1992 at the tourist hotel, Los Yagrumas. He asked me to sit and he drew me in about 15 minutes. I treasure this cartoon and it has hung on a wall in my house since I returned to Canada and had it framed. I am so happy that he has gone on to such fame and success in Mexico City, He, like all Cubans, was a warm and nice person

This is much too good to be called a cartoon. It’s a masterpiece of symbolic representation. It should be printed on the cover of all U.S. newspapers and magazines, without comment. It tells the complete story of our current world crisis without a single word.

The word genius is a fair description of Angel Boligan’s talent.

Religion / Government = same thing.  Control for the masses.  Religion by guilt, shame and LIES.  Government by the lying theiving corrupt greedy power elite.
