Speechless

By malena

'The master is he who speaks, who disposes the entirety of language; the object is he who is silent.' R.Barthes 



In a dystopian future the ruling class has the power to speak, the oppressed can only listen. It is forbidden for them to ever speak and punished with prison.  All homes are bugged so speaking in your own home is also off limits.  The oppressed begin to find other non verbal codes to communicate and this way plan a revolution to take over power.
