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.
Isn’t it better not to be robbed, beaten, raped, and killed? This is not an option available to those in the victim pool of our criminal justice system. Like today’s one-click companies; that can’t seem to deliver the right product to the right address to remain unbroken to do the job they claim it can do – the criminal justice system relies on a “customer service” approach to fix things that never should have happened in the first place.
The victim’s only option is for them to try to apprehend the assailant to build a case to plea bargain down to a shortened jail term with early release on parole that is broken and obtain a ho-hum warrant while the assailant commits another crime or two before being apprehended and the whole futile process starts all over again.
The criminal justice system has changed over the years: murders used to get the death penalty; then life in prison; then a few years in prison; then no prison because they are not accountable for their actions — but the outcome for the victims has remained the same: they’re dead, dead, dead, dead, dead.
