"UPGRADE" -- a chilling anti-corporatism comic book

1 post / 0 new

You might check out "UPGRADE," a smart and nicely drawn comic-book for adults, free on Amazon, about a crazy future world where corporations run society, privacy is gone, consumerism is rampant, and nobody seems to care. At only 40 pages, it’s a fast read, both creepy and funny and unfortunately, rings way too true.

It's set a sci-fi society where everyone eagerly awaits and installs "upgrades" that take away their personal freedoms under the guise of "convenience", making people more and more dependent upon a techno-corporate-government, and yet they eagerly embrace. Sound familiar?

A Rising Tide Only Lifts All Boats When Everyone Has a Boat.

President John F. Kennedy once said about economic development that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Kennedy was, of course, right, but he missed something really, really important: A rising tide lifts only lifts all boats when everyone has a boat.
