    Looking at the website, I don't know if these are actually supposed to help an audience understand the given topic, or if it's just an artistic statement (perhaps "hey, look, government is complex!"). If they were created to actually convey useful information, I feel sorry for the audience; I about suffered a stroke just trying to figure out what the hell they were trying to tell me.
