Fictional mini-story by Marek Rosa
Inspired by some people's reaction to nuclear blackmail in 2022
I am but a teenager living under the oppressive rule of Taros on my home planet, Uroba. I am bereft of freedom, merely a cog in the machinery of dictatorship. As I have grown, I've yearned for experiences that remain forbidden, gleaned only from forbidden books. I now send this message across the stars, a warning to others: do not succumb to nuclear blackmail and repeat our disastrous mistakes.
