The Human Trap

by Hala H. Hassan

“Take it or leave it.” The borders trap. [1/3 The Human Trap]

“Anything you say will be held against you.” Freedom of speech. [2/3 The Human Trap]

“Aliens are not welcome.” The new scream. [3/3 The Human Trap]

The Human Trap‘ portrays the failure of the world to reconcile the concepts of evolution and globalization. It addresses the most troubling occurrence of our time: how people continue to be victims of war, discrimination, and border control; how people’s realities and voices are diluted, manipulated, and transformed into weapons of destruction; and how people are alienated as a result of alternative facts, cyber bullying, and virtual walls.
