A 3,800 word story
(Contains some adult content)
The world has become a highly moralistic society, controlled by monitors employed by The State to ensure strict moral discipline across every facet of civilisation. 'Sex, drugs, and rock n roll' are no longer tolerated. Free choice and democracy have long since been banned. The air is so thick it is tangible and the sun will kill you where you stand without the proper protection. Two friends sit on a park bench watching (reluctantly) a holo-flick sponsored by The State. Steffan urges his friend to pay heed to The State's movie - a public information flick warning about the dangers of drugs. But his friend - a determined addict - scorns the strict legislation of the government and the patronising advice from Steffan. To his cost.
