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 words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.

History has shown us the foolishness of installing such a “benign” rulership — and that even in the small chance of it happening: it was certain to be followed by a succession of tyrants.
