I like my dystopia with a dollop of reality and, as such, try to take what's going on now & advance it several hundred years to what it could become. I would never, however, want some of the things I write to come to pass - especially not right now!
In Truth, the sequel to XVI, the media/government sends out what they consider to be "breaking news" to everyone's PAVs (Personal Audio Video devices.) Imagine my surprise when I came across this news story the other day!
As good as this seems, and even with this disclaimer, "Consumers would be able to opt out of all but those presidential messages." something inside my brain is whispering, "invasion of privacy... too much control... "
What do you think?
