Ever since the 1950s, various kinds of conflicts among people and unhealthy social practices had been cropping up. The satirical arts came into being as times require. This cartoon sneers at those people who injure the public interests for their own benefits. In this picture, a civil servant is polishing his pen with curtains of the public. The artist brings to life a selfish, and apathetic figure with only a few strokes.
