2020 Hindsight

2020 Hindsight
Illustration by Dorothy Woodend.

The Tyee’s Steve Burgess is looking back at the year 2020. To be clear, this is not intended as some form of Clockwork Orange-style classical conditioning exercise in which you are strapped into a chair with your eyelids pinned open. You are not legally required to participate. Since it is completely voluntary, the Geneva Convention does not apply. You are consenting to your own torture. But, you know, you might also get a few chuckles out of it.
