I’m sure by now you’re familiar with the phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On”. Originating during World War II, it was meant as government propaganda to help citizens of the UK cope with the oncoming threat of evil. It’s since become a cultural icon in the 21st Century, a statement that has perhaps helped modern societies — not just in Great Britain but the entire world — deal with the instability and fear associated with terrorism, economic disaster, and paradigm change.
The story of how it has spread through today’s culture is far more interesting than my short summary above, and so I encourage you to watch the video above, produced by Barter Books, and see for yourself.
As a friendly bonus, we’ve created an 11″x17″ ”Keep Calm and Game On” poster for you to print out, which you can download by clicking the image below.
