2027; a Letter From the Future


Image Source:

There was a time that if I thought of a song it played. Right there in my head. No iPod, no computer. It just was. I suppose it’s one of the few benefits that came with having the chip.

Infants are now born and implanted. It’s just how it’s done. No one has a choice. They don’t even pretend you do by giving you an authorization form. It’s mandatory and they just do it.

We are the computers. We are the databases or depositories for information. Most of the knowledge we hold is meaningless to all but ourselves. Most of us still have a human heart, but we also have a mind that can and is manipulated at will by the government, the Man, Big Brother. Some of the information they have us store is their way of being sure it’s hidden from their other enemies; the ones they cannot control with starvation and thirst. None of us know who hold what information either. Only they know.

Don’t discount what I’m telling you. There are enough signs for you to find the truth, but you have to let this letter open your eyes to see them. You have to fix it. This is not what our country is supposed to be. Hell, WE are not what God intended us to be.

Those who created the technology that they implant in us — and those they sell it to, have turned us all into game pieces. It is so impregnated in us that we don’t know it to be any other way so everything I’m saying just sounds nuts. Trust me, I’m not nuts.

InDOC — short for Indoctrination is manufactured by the American government; a program that begins at your birth and leads to your death. It’s quite possible you have the chip. It’s probable actually. I haven’t met someone without it in years. Every memory you have is manufactured. Nearly every emotion too.

I don’t know in what year or place you have found this letter, but it’s 2027 in the High Desert of California as I write. I feel hurried. I don’t have much time before I have to go back under. I just want someone to know what’s happened in case I never come back up. For history’s sake you know?

I don’t know how many others there are like me; how many that are left that remember…I could be the only one.

Back in 2017 — wow, those years went by like a snowball rolling downhill…fast…we fell under total economic collapse unlike the United States had ever seen before. The Great Depression was nothing in comparison. There were some people who said for a decade or more before it happened that it was coming. Most of us didn’t believe them. We thought they were just a bunch of conspiracy theorists. We were dead wrong, and they were right. We should have listened.

By 2022 half of the country’s population was gone. Just gone, mostly from starvation, disease, and violence after the collapse. It happened fast. The government let us rob and kill each other in the initial chaos and then those of us that were left were rounded up and immediately chipped and Indoctrinated. Everyone that has been born since is officially owned and even manufactured intentionally by the American government.

Your every movement and experience is accessible by someone else. Your handler. You don’t even know when the moment of access happens most of the time. Nothing is unknown to your handler if he or she wants to know about it. They make a lot of money to know about.

It started with the spy cameras and grew more invasive from there. Now Orwell’sThought crimes” really do exist. Soon, very soon, the real race of man will be completely gone and all that will be left are InDOCs. With technology rapidly developing who knows what  will come next?

I dug my implant out a year ago and disappeared. I nearly died from the infection that set in. Each chip is programmed to release a poison if it’s tampered with. The expired anti-dote I’d bought underground barely saved my life and cost a months worth of the supplies that I had creatively hidden away for the year leading up to my escape. Your chip is embedded at the base of your spine where the cauda equina is. It’s hard and dangerous to get to. Be careful if you try to remove yours, but know until you do, you will never be free.

No one can be trusted in this new world. Greed and it’s accompanying evil are everywhere and squalid circumstances for all of the “have nots” only perpetuate more crime, violence, and death. What’s “theirs” is theirs and what’s yours is anybody’s for the taking.

After the collapse and round-up many of us were stuck in the internment camps they started building back in 2007. We thought our local officials or the military would help us, but Posse Comitatus had been gutted since 2006 and the military was not on our side. After the passing of the Patriot Act followed by the NDAA we were pretty much screwed, most of us just didn’t want to believe it.

Most of us lost our guns in 2013 when all the known firearm owners had theirs confiscated. We were left pretty defenseless. Some people were smart and thought ahead. They reported their guns stolen before the confiscation so they were able to hide them and hold on to them later. Now though, those guns are of little use without ammunition or the means to make any.

Food is scarce. It’s rationed. We are not allowed to collect rain water or grow our own vegetables. We are not allowed to own cattle. The government owns what little resources were left after the collapse. Companies like Monsanto destroyed food growth between their pesticides and genetically modified food and there were few precious acres of farm-able land left and they too were confiscated. The food that’s grown is for them, not us. The food they ration out to us is manufactured with waste and chemicals and who knows what else and the only medicine left is the drugs they give us to keep us passive, docile, and dumb.

There’s no time left. I have to go. I want to tell you the rest of the story, but they’re coming now. I can hear the dogs in the distance. Remember, everything you think is real, is not.

    Fantastic! Beautifully written. :)

    Honestly, I always have trouble believing that a small group of people (government) can keep an entire populace down for too long. Maybe I’m naive, but I really think that the majority would reach a breaking point and fight back long before there are too few of them to do so. I know this is science-fiction (maybe?), but I always have a hard time believing that a revolution wouldn’t happen before the human spirit is crushed, guns or no guns. Again, that’s just me.

      I hope you are right however…

        Me too. Though, I stand by my theory that anyone who tries to mess with my brain is going to be on the wrong end of a psychic butt-whupping. Too many monsters in there. ;)

    Scary world you present. I have to say I agree with slepsnor – I don’t think you need guns to rise up against oppressors. Ideas can change the world.

    That is such a terrible scenario and such great writing! :)
    I knew Monsanto was no good with what they were doing with the seeds!

    Thank God for those who are standing up and fighting against government being the all in all – it’s a scary picture you paint, but one that could easily come true. Keep up the good fiction – I love it!

    • CheriSpeak
      February 26, 2013

      Thanks Vic. I am considering adding to this eventually. I just don’t do fiction often so..

    Very impressive… you have scared the wits out of me… Luckily, in 2027 I will be 77 and they will probably dispose of me!

    • CheriSpeak

      Thank you, and we should be scared…the links i left in the “letter” are real. This scenario is not far fetched unfortunately.

    Wow Cheri! Very enticing read. You should keep writing more of this. It is gripping. Love how you include present day issues. It makes everything so much more plausible and scary. It’s very likely something like this is happening and this is what our futures entail.

    • CheriSpeak
      February 26, 2013

      Thanks Tasha, I am considering writing more…a modern day 1984.

      • Corner of Confessions
        February 26, 2013

        DO IT!!! (that was my book nerd side exploding lol) I’ll read it :)

      • CheriSpeak
        February 26, 2013

        I’m thinking about it…I am already writing a book. A marketing book and I am working on a major piece to commemorate the 10th anni of the Iraq War. We’ll see ;)

    Love your Monsanto reference! I am very inclined to believe that Monsanto WILL have a hand in creating an environmental catastrophe on a planet-destroying level.

    • CheriSpeak
      February 27, 2013

      LOL thanks. There are a lot of great links and references in there ;)

    This is wonderful!

    Any interest in sharing a bit of your particular brand of awesomeness via a guest post over in my little kingdom? If so, shoot me an email:

    • CheriSpeak
      February 27, 2013

      I would love to however, it will be a couple weeks before I can. I am knee deep in a non-fiction book proposal and barely finding time to post here. Thank you :)

      • djmatticus
        February 27, 2013

        That will be absolutely fine. The kiddo is expected at the end of March anyway, so that’s when I’d really need the guest posts!

      • CheriSpeak
        February 27, 2013

        gotchya ;) gimmie some ideas

      • djmatticus
        February 27, 2013

        – spin some of your marvelous fiction to create a story about “the matticus kingdom” – you know about the jester (that’s me), but who else do you find in the kingdom, what kind of trouble do they get themselves into
        – take one of my posts you’ve enjoyed the most and do a spin off or parody of it (or take one of my posts you enjoyed the least and make it better)
        – or just write something silly, something about yourself, something about why you like blogging, about the connections we bloggers make with one another through our words, etc…

        Like any of those?
