This is one of those things that sound really deep but doesn't really make a lot of sense when you think about it. What thin line is there between freedom and slavery?

And I'm not saying there isnt a thin line, you could argue for either one, I'm just saying painting birds with a line through them doesn't demonstrate it very well. When the **** do you tie birds together?

Am i completely missing the point here? Is the line supposed to represent shackles and chains? beacuse that doesn't make sense either.

Maybe they're impaled over a grill... No still deosn't make sense..

Without the line they look birds.Birds fly free through the sky.With the line it looks like barbed wire.Barbed wire tends to be used to block people on places like prisons.
Birds are free,barbed wire is slavery.

I'm not sure if you're defending it or just interpreting it, but i must ask you: Since when does barbed wire symbolize slavery? When i think of slavery i think of shackles, ropes, maybe fences if you stretch it, but barb wire? That's used for war mostly.

I'll buy that birds represent freedom, but how does putting a line through birds make barb wire? Do they use our freedom to make us slaves by putting lines through us? Or does the line itself represent something else? And in that case what?

I know artistic freedom and all that, and they kinda look alike, but that is quite far fetched.

The symbols in this are just to far removed from each other, and from what the description says it's supposed to symbolize.

But that's just my opinion anyway.

Metaphorically speaking, how is there a thin line between slavery and freedom?

This picture only shows a superficial example.

Ever hear of segments? That is 1 line. The turns are segments of that line, if I remember correctly.

That is a simple elementary equation for a STRAIGHT line, not a line in general. There are also equations for lines that do curve e.g. y=e^x is a curved line graph.

In what way do a bunch of 'X's represent freedom.

Birds, you know. Free as a bird?
One thin line through them all - barbed wire. Slavery.
