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.
Government has made great strides – in pretending it’s actually doing something. All of their “On this spot we will build” glowing rhetoric is good for selling; but the results confirm that selling and profiting are the sole concerns of their policy making.
“Transparency,” “participation,” and “ethics” are stickers pasted on the sides of an impenetrable monolith – and our involvement is reduced to reading the proclamations of their “black box” decisions.
While our politicians are “ongoing nowhere” — we’re “going nowhere” — and it’s nowhere we want to go.
