The Word

by Aindreas1999

"The Word," depicts a dystopian world, where the written word is replaced with hieroglyphs & the spoken with sign language.

Words were deemed problematic, so they are abolished. It asks the reader to imagine a world without words. To consider how stagnant & stale such a world is destined to be.

Ancient Chinese proverb says, "May you live in interesting times."
Sounds like a blessing, in reality, it is a curse to say to someone. Living in interesting times means living in risky & uncertain times.
Current year is interesting times.

"The Word," asks the reader to consider, how would you feel if your right to use words was taken from you?
