Moving Towards Mann Act II

At this point in the game it is (was) clear that the passing of the Mann Act II was going to be a critical (if not the critical) focus of the game. Another news story appeared indicating that the Mann Act II had passed in the Senate (see Figure 4.11) and that a referendum would now be held on “July 20, 2142” (in game world time) to determine if, in fact, sentient beings (that is, AIs) would be granted their equal rights. Figure 4.19 highlights this news story as it appeared on the AIT Web site.

On a related note, there was an assassination attempt on Senator Julia Mann. The assassin was captured, based on information given to officials by Brutus (Swinton’s AI). Figure 4.20 highlights the news story as it occurred. Note the great quote at the end of the story, attributed to the would-be assassin, “Well, I guess I must have malfunctioned.”
