The newest gaming craze sweeping across the world, Among Us, is proof that our trial system is fundamentally flawed. The reality is that we could easily sentence people to death based on shaky witness testimony and zero physical evidence in our actual system just as we do so frequently in the game. Among Us merely takes these flaws to the extreme, forcing players into voting out their comrades, killing the person with a plurality (not even a majority!) of votes, under the pretense that the “impostors” will kill the crew if the crew doesn’t kill them first. Among Us further highlights a deep flaw in our system with 50/50 votes, declaring that it is better to kill at least one innocent party if you are confident you will also be killing a guilty one as well. In short, Among Us shows us our worst selves, but it also gives us the opportunity to be better than before by reforming this outdated and barbaric system of “justice”.
Wow. Blue’s lookin’ pretty fuckin’ sus.
I don’t know about you guys but I don’t like how hard he’s tryin’ to get us to skip.
I think we should throw him out the airlock and call it a day.
NO, GUYS, WAIT! IT’S SEVEN! WE DON’T VOTE ON SEVEN, RIGHT?
I saw Blue vent.
WAIT! HE’S TRICKING YOU! THIS ILLUSTRATES THE POINT I WAS JUST TRYING TO MA–
Blue was ejected.
