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.
So much is made up these days; that there is really nothing left but words and names: and the very useful images that they have acquired over time. When our government coins “new” terms to sell discredited social policies: they’re just following the same useful path that corporations have used for decades: buy trusted brands and use trusted catchwords to add legitimacy to their own inferior product. At the time when the USDA decided to take over organic certification; they marketed it to national agribusiness’s – not as being good for the environment, or healthy for the consumer – but as being a trusted brand in the public’s consciousness – and proceeded to certify industrial farming as “organic” – with the same lack of regulatory concern and oversight that has kept the Dead Zone unabated into its third decade: and the same suppression of evidence that has kept industrial farming communities unhealthy for generations. All that’s left is the public’s trust – in something that no longer exists.
