In the year 2081, America is a completely different place. Amendments were made to the
Constitution of the United States that made it illegal to be different. Because of this
Constitutional change, the idea that no one would have an advantage over someone else

else.

Making outstanding people average would be a problem today. In the future, the government
has ordered overachieving individuals to wear handicaps to make them average. 1 And to

nose, keep his eyebrows shaved off, and cover his even white teeth with black caps at
snaggle-tooth random.

I can believe that some people in their society embraced the Constitutional changes that
made this handicapping possible. Just imagine how perfect our country would be if everyone
was equal and competition was erased. No worries about poor grades, promotions, pay
raises, looking good in the morning, how you speak, drive, write, or read because the
government has made it illegal to excel. Being normal is now mandatory.
