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.
“Q: What do you call hypocrisy when it surpasses all rationalizing? Policy.”
If you can have policies instead of individual judgement – then you can have policies instead of individual worth. At least that’s the reasoning that coats the self-serving hypocrisy of today’s societal authorities. Even though they consider themselves rulers and deciders [rather than representatives] – they use public policy as a means of cloaking the very personal gains that are a result of their decisions — even if it’s only the frisson of power.
