SURVIVAL (any gender, mid teens on up)
Some of what I'm going to say might surprise you. So bear with me. Lets go through a little true or false.
Survival is more important than happiness... true.
In the year twenty sixty-five the human race made it to perfect survival... true.
There's no going back... true.
But because we now have no threats and no inconvenience we've gotten bored... true.
And so everyone has to have Panic Therapy for one hour a day to feel anything at all during the rest of the day... false.
Yep. False. It may be the law, but that doesn't make it true. There's plenty of research saying we can make our own feelings of excitement without feeling like we're in danger.
Here's another thing that might surprise you: In one week they're going to pass a very special bill. If you sign up for the TV show and if you survive the year: You will be excused from Panic Therapy for the rest of your life.
