ABOUT:

In this segment, we continue to unravel the societal and sociopolitical characteristics in "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick. We delve deeper into the novel's depiction of religion through Mercerism and the Christ-like figure, Wilbur Mercer. We'll examine the principles that motivate Mercerites and their views on 'killing the killers'. Additionally, we analyze the novel's representation of mass media through Buster Friendly and his Friendly Friends, exploring how mass entertainment is used to sway public opinion and undermine Mercerism.
