The fifth pulp fiction story in dystopian world of the 23rd century. Part of the Factory 21 series. Written by Rogue Saint.
This is running inside of my brain when I think of Families Unlimited, the fifth story of our Factory 21 series. And, don't tell anybody else I told you this - but the same great song Love Really Hurts Without You from an amazing singer Billy Ocean was running through the heads of the executives of Families Unlimited when they tried to devise a complete overhaul for the modern family in the 23rd century. The song goes...
You run around town like a fool and you think that it's groovy
You're giving it to some other guy who gives you the eye
You don't give nothing to me, you painted a smile
And you dress all the while to excite me.
But don't you know you're turning me on
I know that it's wrong, but I can't stop the pain inside me.
Baby, love really hurts without you,
Love really hurts without you,
And it's breaking my heart,
But what can I do...
Zing. Let's get back to reality. And reality is brutal. Over fifty per cent of modern marriages end in divorce. Yes, I'm gonna tell you this plain and simple. Marriage is a failed institution. You wouldn't buy a car that breaks down at such a rate. Would you board a plane that's got such high probability of getting you killed? I could go on...
But don't you worry. Leave it to the bright minds of the Families Unlimited to plan a better, more sophisticated, modern family for you. You just sit and relax. After all, what can go wrong?
Short synopsis for Families Unlimited:
The radical transformation of the family becomes a main agenda for Super Corporation in the 23rd century. The method for this transformation relies on a three-layered program of creating modern children as well as legal elimination of the words mother and father. But the staple of the transformative program, the SMC child, comes with a nagging bug.
