15 Illustrations Depicting What It’s Like To Be Born In The 21st Century

These witty cartoons present some awesome and, at times, disturbing insights on life as we know it.

When cartoons are mentioned, people often think of whimsical works of art. After all, the word itself is often associated with children’s entertainment. Indeed, many of us seek out cartoons when we need a good laugh or something to cheer us up.

However, cartoons can also be used as a platform for though-provoking messages. Those created to accompany editorials or opinion pieces, for instance, certainly deliver quite a punch. In fact, some of them can stand alone and present really sharp insights without a single word.

That said, here are some cartoons that will surely make a lot of people stop and think.

It’s easy to sweep things under the rug.

This is why we shouldn’t get distracted.
