#codepunk 020: Robocop and the Militarization of Society

In the latest episode, we reminisce on the cultural impact of Robocop as a film that examines dystopian themes of corporatism, identity, and the technological and militaristic enhancement of the police force, and use this discussion to examine some of the societal issues coming to the surface today. Be forewarned: we stray a little bit into the political, as some of these issues touch on current events.
