Assuming your dream of a utopian policestate, my deepest fear, did come through.
Do you really think in all honesty, that the "powers that be" by then, would care if you were an artist at heart. A great actor, a gifted musician,
an extraordinary painter, or a philosophy professor. I seriously doubt you'll even get a say, as to what "they" want your work to be. It could be
digging holes, for the rest of your life. Because in your utopian world, hundreds of thousands, probably millions of people will die. Maybe they
couldn't cut it, maybe the work they were assigned was too hard.
Then there's the old folks, the terminal ill hospital patients and retarded people in institutions, not to mention runaway kids. You know, they're
just taking up space, eating our food and useing our precious water and air. And for what.? They'll never contribute anything valueable to society.
So why not help these "poor" people, to cross over to a much much "better" world.
Then also, let's not forget but keep reminding ourselfes. In all totallytarian systems, personal gain via corruption at the higest levels and down
the foodchain, are just a part of being members of the "elite".
Underground movements has always excisted. And i garantee, even with all the new high-tech gadgets, sattelite traceing, video surveillance, people
will always find a way to rebel. Especially in a system, where brute force along with summarian mock trials and executions, are part of everyday
I wonder how long you'll keep digging graves, filling the holes with people, who maybe only had one or two "outside" the box thoughts, just minutes
before the New Thought Police kicked their doors inn.
When you realize there's something so rotten to the core, in your new Garden of Eden. I have no doubt, that you'll try to fight back, becoming a
real deal gunswinging rebel yourself.
