The framework and characterizations for Rodin’s Man continues to develop.
In the meantime, I want to develop the context of Rodin’s Man’s world.
I thought I’d do that through a series of posts from that world.
– Government of New Dominion
January 10, AW 16
Following unacceptable disturbances at the Nutritional Service in the Borough of City Centre, your Government has ordered its immediate temporary closure. This action will be re-assessed in one week’s time. The service will be re-opened if the situation has been stabilized.
In these difficult times, food is a privilege, not a right.
The Sinter Underground
Security Forces attacked citizens protesting against insufficient amounts and poor quality of food at the local soup kitchen.
The government added to the indignity by thereafter blaming the protesters for the disturbance and then ordering that the facility be temporarily closed.
Once again, government officials and the elite gorge themselves while the populace goes hungry.
