Minecraft As American Political Commentary

Minecraft As American Political Commentary

Dayshot: Today, courtesy of a Minecraft map, we get a glimpse of a grim future brought on by an economic crisis, which started shortly after Donald Trump became President of the United States.

Made by PlanetMinecraft’s Jossieboy, the map, titled “No Future”, is his way to deliver commentary on today’s political climate. As he put it:

This project is a little more than just a build. It is my way of delivering some critique to the current political situation in the U.S. And I know this is just a game to many, but it can be so much more.

This build depicts a homeless man, who’s been struck by the economical crisis that would follow if Trump would be president. So if you could share this build with people, that would be fantastic, as well as just give some thought (if you live in the U.S. that is) who you would vote for in the upcoming 2016 election, because Trump as president, would be horrible for, not just the U.S., but the world.

There’s a couple more renders:

And here are the in-game shots I took. It’s a huge build, so there’s a lot to look at, and the individual objects are well-realised. A very competent project overall, even if you take away the political commentary.

Grab the map here if you want a closer look.

Dayshot showcases some of the prettiest, funniest game-related screenshots and art that we can find.


  • I don’t understand why people think Trump as president would be bad for the US. He’s better than anybody else currently running for president.

    • Especially since Bernie Sanders would be most likely to send the US economy down the shitter…

    • Yeah, because its not like the way he has run his businesses has ever done anyone any harm is it? Just ask the happy, prosperous folk of Atlantic City…

    • If I could vote on America’s behalf, I’d vote trump.

      The other presidential candidates are too boring and predictable, where as Trump in the white house could be fun =D

      Building walls, laughing at Europe for their unspoken regret for letting refugees into their country, his blunt words hurting everyone’s feelings, his diplomatic solutions could start a World War III, etc.

      It’ll be fun!
