Occupy Movement Ryan Oakely Future Cyber Wars

Guest: Ryan Oakley, author of "Technicolor Ultra-Mall."
Topic: What if in the future Toronto had been turned into a huge indoor mall? But the class hierarchy is dominated by roaming gangs intent on enforcing their own version of what makes up a society. Free of authority, free of military, free of...order? Ryan draws upon the current “Occupy Movement” and a certain amount of libertarian doctrine as his prose. Would a society be better off under these circumstances, worse off because of roaming gang mentality or just same old same old? And that is the challenge of his book and our show together. We challenge each other’s conventions throughout this show and expose many shocking government policies that may already be in place and not in the future. Profound.
