the writing's on the wall

I snapped this photo in the underground of Flinders Street Station, here in Melbourne, just tonight.
Nice one!
The offical poster reads, 'every piece of information helps' so somebody has jammed this one with the appropriate use of the word 'paranoia'.
It's a big up yours to John Howard and the fear mongers who are drubbing up nationalism, racism and anomie in the interest of increasing state surveillance here in Australia and therefore control over its population.
This country has been turning more and more into a police state over the last ten years and at an alarming rate in the last four or so years in particular.
It's sickening and frightening but wherever there is power there is resistance so I hold out hope.
I know, I know; I've said it all before and probably more eloquently than this.

I take it that the word paranoia was pasted on to the poster. What was the original word underneath it?

It said, 'information'.
It's in aid of inciting locals to fear and surveillance of their own communities and their members.
