Shaping The Future #2


Mr. Harrison looked at his wife and then at the doctor, "We...kind of...wanted our son to be in charge of...his own...destiny."

The doctor nodded, "I understand, but rules are rules, Mr. Harrison. We ran the Future Probability Test and the results are that we will have a shortage of concert pianists around the time your child comes of age. So, that's what we will program your child's DNA with."

"What if he doesn't want to be a concert pianist?" Mrs. Harrison asked.

"What the individual wants and what's best for the State is often two different things," the doctor said.

    Ooooh! Sinister..or is it sonister? If they call the little lad Ata, then he could be a Son Ata. (Sorry, couldn't resist!). More wonderful tension, Christopher.
