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.
Don’t change the situation – change the definition. Today’s government has more lenses than an old school planetarium: and the sky’s the limit for their fatuous policy-making.
Tompkins County authorities have recently reassessed the value of rural properties up another 5% – in spite of still refusing to provide the County services of municipal water, sewers, mass transit, and Sheriff’s patrols – and while at the same time as enacting an Agricultural Zoning District that removes almost every “as of right” land use from the predominantly non-farming rural residents – and additionally promoting the construction of “satellite lagoons” on land next to non-farming residences: open cesspits of fermenting manure and heavy metal barn wastes, filled with antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant pathogens; and off-gassing hydrogen sulfide and methane gasses.
This is what County authorities call the “allocation of burdens”: a euphemism for what was meted out to servants, slaves, and serfs in equally oppressive, but less hypocritical, times.
