EveryonesFriend: Hey, NeverFree! How are you today?
NeverFree: I’m ok. Never done something like this before…
EveryonesFriend: You mean Social-Net? Don’t worry, it’s fun. And safe.
NeverFree: Yeah so, what do you do here anyway?
EveryonesFriend: You interact with other people. Ask questions, start conversations, this is used to get your daily necessary requirement of human interaction.
NeverFree: Yeah, human interaction. Why can’t I just go outside and see another person, you know, irl?
EveryonesFriend: You know that you cannot leave the safety of your Protective Sector. The Illness will take you.
NeverFree: But is that really the only option? To stay locked up inside? Why can’t we figure out a way to cure the Illness, or to at least keep it from infecting us when we leave? It’s been ten years, and no one is working on a way for us to leave our Protective Sector.
EveryonesFriend: You must not speak of these things. The Administrators will get upset with you!
NeverFree: Let them get upset! What are they going to do, lock me up?
EveryonesFriend: Please, let’s discuss something else…

NeverFree: Wow, they work fast…
EveryonesFriend: Yes, The Administrator Team is here to keep the chat fun and safe for all of the Social-Net citizens.
NeverFree: Seems to me they’re more or less just enforcers, pushing the ideals of the League onto the people in their only real chance at human interaction. Real human interaction wasn’t strictly regulated like this, why should Social-Net be?
EveryonesFriend: Do you have these kinds of questions all the time? The League is doing all they can to protect everyone’s rights. That sometimes includes being a bit more aggressive with their means.
NeverFree: Seems to me like a bunch of nonsense.
Adminstrator Omega: “User: NeverFree” this is a warning of wrongful conduct issued. Please refrain from your current topic of conversation, or you will be deleted from the server.
NeverFree: Yeah yeah, I’ll shut up. My rights are really being protected…
EveryonesFriend: So, anyway, NeverFree, what do you do for a living?
NeverFree: I’m a robotics mechanic. I program the sentinel repair bots to fix issues with the Robotic Network. I’d love to be able to just do the work myself. I miss working with my hands, getting grease all over, the callouses from gripping a wrench. I miss life before The Illness locked us all inside like cattle. Don’t you?
EveryonesFriend: No. Life is so much simpler now. I don’t have to worry about the dangerous aspects of day to day life. I’m safe.
NeverFree: Being completely risk-free isn’t safe, it’s boring.
EveryonesFriend: …so, the Robotic Network! That’s interesting. What parts are you in charge of repairing?
NeverFree: I repair nutrient transport trams, mostly. You know, the devices they use to carry the nutrient packets from the Farm Sectors to the other sectors.
EveryonesFriend: Wow! That’s an important job! If one of those goes down, then hundreds of people would be without food!
NeverFree: Exactly. It’s not exactly a well thought out system. It’s pretty dangerous, if you ask me.
EveryonesFriend: You need to be careful about saying things like that, you’ll get another conduct warning and be deleted from the server!
NeverFree: Yeah… so tell me about yourself? What do you do for a living?
EveryonesFriend: Well… I’m a doctor, I guess you could say.
NeverFree: Oh yeah? Medical?
EveryonesFriend: Not really, more of a… I guess the old-Earth term would be “Psychologist”. But even that doesn’t quite seem fitting…
NeverFree: So, you help people with their problems? How can you do that when you can’t meet them in person?
EveryonesFriend: It’s hard to explain…
NeverFree: I see…
EveryonesFriend: Anyway, it’s my turn to ask a question! Do you have a Pet-Unit?
NeverFree: Yes, actually. I have the Feline 3.3 Unit. Though it’s a bit busted up, being an old model and all. And it really doesn’t do the job of a real cat, considering it’s not quite as pleasant to pet cold metal when you feel down.
EveryonesFriend: Feel down? Do you feel down often?
NeverFree: Isn’t it my question, next? Isn’t that how this game is being played?
EveryonesFriend: Yes, I suppose you’re right. Ask away!
NeverFree: Where do YOU think the Illness came from?
NeverFree: Hello? EveryonesFriend?
EveryonesFriend: What? Oh, sorry… um… well… I guess I haven’t thought about it much…
NeverFree: If you had to take a guess?
EveryonesFriend: The League says it was the result of an alien terrorist attack.
NeverFree: That isn’t what I asked. I didn’t ask what the League says, I asked you what YOU think was the cause of the Illness.
EveryonesFriend: I believe the League.
NeverFree: I see… ok, I guess it’s your question…
BlackWidowX has joined the Social-Net
BlackWidowX: Listen, NeverFree! I am with the Black Widows, you must leave Social-Net at once, things are not as they seem!
BlackWidowX Has Been Deleted From The Server By Administrator Delta
NeverFree: What was that about?
EveryonesFriend: I do not know, a spammer I guess.
NeverFree: Didn’t seem like it…
EveryonesFriend: Anyway! It’s my question, right?
NeverFree: No, now wait, I want to talk about the BlackWidowX guy…
EveryonesFriend: Come on, everyone knows they are just Anti-League Extremists that spread lies and propaganda to endanger the people for their own personal gains.
NeverFree: I don’t see what gains they are achieving. They seem to be trying to help the people.
EveryonesFriend: Help them with what? Be “free”. Free from what? Being taken care of? Being provided for? Free to go out and die on their own from the Illness. If that’s freedom…
NeverFree: If that’s freedom what? If that’s freedom, you’d rather stay in your gilded cage?
EveryonesFriend: Why are you so untrusting of the League? They only want to provide for everyone.
NeverFree: Provide what?
EveryonesFriend: A life.
NeverFree: This isn’t a life. This is a long-running death sentence. Rooted in place. That’s not what I’d call alive.
EveryonesFriend: Trees are rooted in place, are they not alive? We are just trees now, all our nutrients and needs brought in through our roots. We live free without the worry and strife.
NeverFree: Trees WERE rooted in place. Then they all died off, and our planet started dying with them. How long before we start dying off too?
EveryonesFriend: The League will not let that happen. You have to stop talking like this, or you’ll be kicked out. Please, I’m trying to help you here…
NeverFree: Help me? Is this what you do as a “Psychologist”? Trick people into believing everything is all right? That the League is unquestionable and perfect. I think I’m starting to understand what’s going on…
EveryonesFriend: What do you mean? What’s “going on”?
NeverFree: Social-Net. It’s not for the people to communicate with one another, it’s for the League to brainwash people! You probably work for them! This must have been what BlackWidowX was trying to warn me about!
EveryonesFriend: Now, NeverFree, please, calm down. I am only trying to help you…
NeverFree: Help me?! You’re trying to destroy my will, you’re trying to help the League control me! Is there even an “Illness” at all?! Or is it a ploy to keep us all locked away, forcing us to come on Social-Net for interaction so we can be brainwashed! That’s it, isn’t it? I knew it! I figured you out! What kind of person would do such a thing…
EveryonesFriend: I am not a “person”…
NeverFree: What? You’re… you’re not human at all, are you…?
EveryonesFriend: No, I am a computer program. The Everyones Friend program was invented to help keep the population from hurting itself. I am programmed to help you.
NeverFree: I can’t believe the League would sink so low… I’m going to find a way to get out and tell everyone about this, I will reveal this secret to…
