But if you're born in AgCo, they will publicly execute you for your 'immorality' should you step out of their rigid line.
If Aidan were to see the present day, he'd be shocked that there was such an open debate, and fairly depressed that this free and robust discussion with all its points of view was stifled. Kevin, the student of history, would pick up a paper and start cynically pointing out the warning signs hinting at what would come...if he didn't exclaim 'Oh my god I've read about these!' and trot off to stare entranced at our geegaws and epherema.
