Another week, another Quote, this time, the new way:
It was voting day. He shook his head; he was being voted in again. Steward, the benevolent, dictator of the decade. It was all but a landslide before the actual vote was cast; today it was a forgone conclusion.
Steward had abolished several rights, ballooned the nation’s debt, and made several nations his enemies with shortsighted policies. And yet, the man was well liked. He pondered the famous words of Voltaire as he cast his vote against, knowing it was futile:
“It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” -Voltaire.
He was attacked on his way home from the voting booth for not voting the correct way. He died in the hospital not a week later, during the swearing in ceremony.
Alright, not my best work, but hey, I tried. Who else likes dystopias? As always, this is for Silver Threading at:
See you next week!
