The top edge of the poster has the text: "The Enchantment Of / Nuclear Destruction". Below this text the poster has a stylized drawing of a male figure that appears to be partly made of computer components. There are spools of tape visible through an opening in the figures chest. There is a horizontal opening near the figures stomach with a long sheet of printer paper coming out of it. The figures face is fused with the glass of a monitor and a keyboard. The figures brain is exposed with wire attached between it and the monitor on his face. Another figure that is not in view has their arm around the shoulders of the main figure. Below the image the bottom half of the poster has three columns of text addressing nuclear weapons and state control of citizens lives. The bottom edge of the poster has the text: "Anti-Authoritarians Anonymous / P. O. Box 11331 / Eugene, OR 974400 / ''Don''t mourn for me friends, don''t / weep for me never, / For I''m going to do nothing forever / and ever.'' / English workingwoman''s tombstone, / early 19th century".

"Anti-Authoritarians Anonymous" was an Oregon project that published subversive posters and flyers 1981-1985. [LMC]
