In a not so distant future, after many of our generations have past. When governmental mind control is of the norm, verbal speech is outdated and no longer used because it is believed to spread disease and cause emotional stress. The population will now only send texts on their electronic devices. Emotions, laughter, and anger will all be something that our grandparents took away. The government will be able to track and see what everyone is talking about at all times. News broadcasts will all be in scrolling written form, movies will only be pictures in motion with music and sound effects. People will not speak communicate only using hand and head gestures in the company of people they don't know. Cars will drive themselves as you type in the address. The streets, cities, and towns will be quiet because all is electric now, and silent. Only the highest ranking officials of the world have retained the lost art of speaking, but only do so behind closed doors, in private places. But there will come a day, when perhaps a girl, a maid, someone who has seen and heard the leaders of the world make this noise at each other, and they understand each other, will be curious enough to look back in history, read and learn the ways of her ancestor's communication. She will begin to learn that you can have secrets from the government and begin to re-teach the people of the world that speech is free and uncontrolled. However, she knows the government is against such communication, and her future will be limited and dangerous.
