What would happen if the people of a nation decided they didn’t care about their government?
What if instant gratification and mindless forms of recreation were more important?
What if the government was all too ready to provide raunchy amusement, recreational drugs, and a steady stream of reasons to ignore it?
Imagine this: you woke up one day, and you had to get your employment approved by the government. You had to get your unborn baby approved by the government. You got too old or too sick, and your government had the ability to dispose of you.
Could you fight the system?
What if you were not allowed to make new things, think new thoughts, or truly excel to the limits of your abilities because some government entity believes that you are a threat to society?
What if every important decision in your life was made by the government: where you live, where you work, how many children you can have, where you get your news – and in exchange, you had millions of choices in meaningless, mind-numbing entertainment.
