LEA13 Rust by Cica Ghost

“What’s this?” asked the stranger from an obscure planet.
“A tap, it gives water, see?” replied the innkeeper.
“Or something else, when we are lucky,” added a customer.
“Something else? Like what?”
“When democracy was abolished, a group of subversives hacked the water system and added a powder that shuts down the brain temporarily. They still do it today.”
“That’s terrible…”
“It depends. With workdays that are 18 hours long, being knocked-out for a day or two means rest time.”
“We have robots to do our work,” said the stranger appalled.
“We did too. Oddly enough, they became the subversives.”
