Liberal Crime Squad is a game that makes us nostalgic for a period in American history when hippies were looking for new direction in their lives, and were ripe to be snatched up by any cult or extremist group that needed the manpower. It simulates the answers to some interesting questions: What if someone could succeed today where the Symbionese Liberation Army failed? What if instead of causing a media storm with the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, they had simply “enlightened” her and returned her to her normal life as a newspaper heiress? What if they had managed to use their crimes to sway public opinion to the Liberal end of the spectrum instead of alienating everyone? Of course, reasonable discourse never enters the equation. The future of the nation is far too important for one to even bother with such naïve measures.
