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.
If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.
If words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.
We now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
“Ask and you shall receive – but don’t expect to receive what you asked for” – is a moral for government intervention: their only help is in taking control — of everything.
Our post-representative society is plagued with problems – every problem that we gave government the power to stamp out.
How is this possible? Like the gaming consoles that make their money from software, or the products that profit through selling refills: our government maintains its authoritative ascendency through fixing the problems it never fixes – and through its assertions that no one else can.
Serving a public need that is never fulfilled; that becomes a hope; then a wish; and then a part of life’s burdens.
