This is rather...interesting...and disturbing, but I don't mean that in a bad way entirely, haha. My take on this is that the small logs of wood in the ears represents ignorance. The speakerphone represents preaching to the masses, while keeping in mind the wood in the ears, so this person must be preaching blindly about whatever he wants, while not listening to others. The straw in the brain I'm guessing is supposed to portray that his brain is having the life sucked out of It by the government, an unidentified group of people. etc.

This piece of art is pretty hard to decode. It's difficult to pinpoint the several different meanings it has. I do like the complexity from what I've taken a guess on, but the rest, the guts spilling out, the arm missing, I have no idea what it means. I wish it would've been just a tad more clear to understand the purpose of this illustration.

Overall, it's a piece of art that makes you think and I really appreciate that. People need to be challenged. But like I said, just a little more clarity about the guts spilling out and the arm missing would've been nice.

The meaning is that he states with the screen that he is open-minded, while he's actually just preaching his own opinions and not listening or seeing other's opinions, the brain sucked means that he's a dumbass and the guts falling out mean that he's an hypocrit that can't keep himself together.
i know it's hard to understand the meaning, but it wasn't my intention to explain it; i just left it to imagination :)
