I'm Chris, a POC from a US ghetto, worked as a social worker and STEM teacher for poor, homeless, immigrant and largely non-white kids in America's inner-city slum. I'm a one-person indie game dev, and my games are personal reflections of my experiences.

I've been doing gamedev for 25+ years, my largest project to date is Neofeud, a cyberpunk adventure game. I made it while teaching full time, and homeless, w/ my wife and kids living in the back of a Mazda Tribute. Cuz America.

July 4, Hawaii, Independence 

Imagine a Native American community who had a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages and ancestor's graves, the people made to do bastardizations of their sacred dances, wear mock 'sexy feather headresses' and entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hours a day 7 days a week, living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that is just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii

Banning Hawaiian language and culture, coup of a thriving indigenous nation, stealing of land and resources, commodification of our culture, dumping us into toxic ghettos. Hawaii was colonial blueprint for the empire's actions in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, etc.

Super-AI defeated by Baudrillardian post-modernism. "Have you ever had a dream, Siri, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the world with paper labels all over it and the real world?" PsAI-Ops.

Neofeud is anti-capitalist, anti-racist & anti-imperialist cyberpunk. I'm a Native Hawaiian who made this game while working 40+ hrs in social services / teaching in ghettos, while homeless. Neofeud is my life, in art. Thread 1/?

If the US banned flaunting wealth and making fun of the poor, most of its TV shows, movies, celebrities, major influencers, and overall culture would be vaporized.

Also the growth economy would likely stall out without convincing people to get on the hedonic treadmill, and the rent seekers skimming wealth off of every one else might have to do something useful with their lives.

On the plus side we might have a slightly better chance of not rendering the Earth uninhabitable for humanity.

"Oh noes, capitalist propaganda and conspicuous consumption banned on social media, how I'm going to sell my exorbitantly priced luxury goods!"

'Douyin — the Chinese version of TikTok — said six kinds of content including “flaunting wealth,” promoting money-worship, and “making fun of the poor” are now banned on the short-video app.'

Human Rights Violations, US 

"Native Hawaiians 4 times more likely to experience homelessness in Hawaii, ongoing desecration of Hawaiians sacred mountain and ancestral lands in violation of indigenous rights."
2019 Human Rights Violation Report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China.

If only the so-called Leader of the Free World would recognize and make right their human rights violations against us Native Hawaiians and other indigenous peoples.
