The Prison (paraphrased excerpt from a novel I’m reading)

Society. It is as if some cynical genius had designed a huge complex penal colony in the sunshine, eliminating the need for guard towers and barbed wire by merely beaming a gigantic electronic message at the inmates, day and night, saying, You are in heaven! Be happy! If you can’t be happy here, you can’t be happy anywhere! Vote! Consume! Donate! And don’t forget to use your social security number.
