The writer has drawn parallels between different subject matter. The subject matter must meet certain requirements of similarity to evidence the parallel drawn. The Nazi did horrific things to people and to try and attach these heinous acts to Rosemont Copper is slanderous and ridiculous, to say the least. To draw a parallel between propaganda the Nazi used to convey an image and of a young girl utilizing alternative energy is about as bizarre as a University of Arizona professor plagiarizing the same photo and repainting it to meet his Nazi standards for propaganda. Humanities such as painting are subjective and hope to convey a unique way the artist presents a subject, this is the painter or photographers gift to society. It can lead to a better understanding of the subject matter, as seen in a unique way. A painter or a writer can change a subject into another outlook, good or evil. When I see this picture, I see an intelligent looking and dignified young girl holding an integral and world saving solution to her future – an alternative energy source. Alternative energy will require more copper to make, approximately 35% more copper in many applications.
In addition, this child is a real human being that was used in an appropriate manner, by drawing the twisted and invalid parallel in print and in repainting this child to fit into a Nazi propaganda category has diminished the positive message of our children and alternative energy use. People will sometimes get carried away with their points of view and try to convince others to their point of view - as is this case of this writer and this painter who sees this beautiful and positive representation as part of twisted evil thinking.
