This book uses a mix of “activity book” games and puzzles, social awareness bumper stickers, advertisements, billboards, posters and re-imagined old school videogame screenshots that deconstruct the impenetrable façade of government policy making, and help promote critical thinking through interactive play. A unique book for hungry minds.

It’s a corruption that refuses to recognize our individual human worth and reduces us to a commodity – like slavery: it’s a corruption of the soul.
