Live-testing Political TheoriesGiorgio Rajao
I found in my major the ability to actually live-test these political theories we had been studying about. We got together as a class and ran software simulations in which we represented presidents, vice-presidents, and secretaries of defense in a fictitious world striving for supremacy and survival. This simulation started as a curious assignment, but it quickly dominated our lives as we were consumed by our roles and the success of our nations.
