A crash course in changing the world.
Here is a good joke: http://urgentinvoke.com
INVOKE is a ten-week propaganda game inspired by the game EVOKE.
EVOKE is a game commissioned by the World Bank, an international financial institution widely criticised for its practise of using crippling debt to impose its socially and economically destructive policies on the Third World. EVOKE challenges players to become “social innovators” and devise solutions to the world’s social and environmental problems.
As game-playing social innovators, we gladly accept this challenge. And after extensive research and development we are proud to present: INVOKE.
As our contribution to the EVOKE game process, INVOKE is a game even more brilliant and world-changing than the World Bank’s EVOKE.
Our game INVOKES the guise of progressive social activism and community organising to promote pro-capitalist ideology. Its implicit message is that the problems of the world – including hunger, poverty, environmental destruction, injustice and disease – can and must be solved within the logic of the free market system.
The objective of INVOKE is to ideologically demobilize the next generation of potential anti-capitalist activists all over the world. It targets educated layers of African youth – young people most in danger of critiquing and opposing the World Bank’s policies in their region.
After receiving their education, players will “graduate” to become “certified” in World Bank style “innovation”.
So help us socially innovate the world! Play INVOKE, or become a fan by joining our Facebook group.
