The story explores such topics as governmental and religious hypocrisy, love and sex (and the differences between them), and personal responsibility for one's own actions and one's lot in life. All of this is placed in a believable, NextSundayAD-esque world which is very overtly modeled on the socio-political climate of each album's time.

'''Note:''' ''Operation: mindcrime'' is deliberately sparse on details of Mary's death, especially pertaining to the identity of her killer. The video compilation ''Video: mindcrime'' included several possible interpretations; and a Queensrÿche concert show from the late 90s provided further extrapolation, while a 2004 concert show [[http://www.apollowebworks.com/russell/mindcrimefaq.html#whokilled explained it outright]]; however, for purposes of this page, only the original album is being considered canon.
