BOILING YOUR FROG: FINAL SIMMER

“Oh, you young ones would scarcely believe the freedoms…”

“Here we go again!”

“No, no…just listen. You think you have it good now. Maybe some things are better, easier now. But the freedoms! You wouldn’t believe the freedoms of forty years ago…”

“And the sheer bloody danger!”

“Oh, yes, there were the dangers. But you didn’t think of all that when there was life to be lived. I won’t say things were better when I was your age…”

“That’s a relief. To think that back then the only thing between humans and disaster was a piece of dirty cloth and some crap medicines!”

“But you’ve got to understand that we didn’t see it like that. Back then it was all we knew. And that gave us the freedom to roam and to do things…”

“For example?”

“You want examples. For one thing, you could walk down a street and nobody knew who you were or why you were there. You could just do it for the sake of doing it.”

“I don’t understand. You say you could walk about and there was nothing to register your presence?”

“Well, I’m talking about when I was very, very young. And your presence was registered. You were observed at all times – we weren’t that primitive! – but nobody knew who you were until you went into a shop or actually transacted something.”

“So you’re saying you could cross the street and…”

“No, of course not. As soon as you scanned the cross panel your identity was registered. But if you walked along without transactions of any sort you could go untraced for minutes at a time. We were such scamps we would walk around the same block, just to see how long we could do it without a registration pulse. Of course, there were the government checkists and freelancer checkists who were paid per trace, but they were usually in bad areas hunting for serious space violators with torn masks and the like. If you chose the right street at the right time you could just roam free. Talk about fun!”

“I don’t call that fun. I call it stupidity. Typical of womb-gown meat. Bad enough that it was even possible to breathe on other people. Sorry, but I say thank goodness for 2030 and SIT. Sustain, include, transition forever!”

“Ah, but it was the stupidity of youth. I’m sure you’re the same now, only with different urges…maybe even the same urges…I mean, just because I came from a womb doesn’t make me so different…”

[Series of loud beeps. All characters in conversation disappear from screen.]

Silence, then:

    Ouch
    YOUR EDGE CLUSTER HAS BEEN DEFRIENDED BY CENTRAL CARING.

    George Orwell is beginning to sound mild compared to this dehumanised scenario, moso…Hope it’s jest that, an imagined scenario.

    Even serfs might agree.

    Hi moso! What a nightmare of a scenario. I don’t think the vast majority of the population realise how our freedoms are being eroded.

    • mosomoso says:

      Yes, Annie, people seem to be happy throwing it all away, as if free movement, privacy, property, family etc never mattered anyway. Now we have Netflix and…well, that’s about it. We have Netflix.

      Thanks for popping by.

    There’s an epidemic in the West, not yr Covid epidemic, but an epidemic of madness. Hope yu like this, Toff.

      Yes, I’d already caught this and was very pleased to hear a mainstreamer like Oliver speaking out.

      Such is the mood now the public in Oz could be persuaded to wear their undies on the outside and walk backwards. Just a few days of television could get us there.

      I’m expecting one of those “events” where the perps are connected to the anti-vaxx or anti-globo movements. The ludicrously faked shootings in Christchurch already introduced the theme of dangerous internet sites. No doubt we’ll soon be treated to headlines about Australians demanding more crackdowns and censorship. To protect our freedoms!

      Never mind. God is the supreme toff. He has no time for Babel-building try-hards. They shall be smitten with a mighty whack.

    So many people in Oz are imitating the ‘good German.’
