Re: "parents everywhere might just welcome the Communist approach"
The 17 years old, locked out of their devices for all but two hours a day, grew increasingly restless.
Egged on by their fellows, they started to leave meet together, many seeing their screen time friends face to face for the first time. As they found common cause, the meetings grew in volume, forcing them to gather outside their parents' flats: they found long-abandoned youth centres and sports halls. This was becoming A Movement. To hide their true intent, the teens took advantage of the equipment in the halls and started sports teams, arranging tournaments across the city, across the region and then across the entire country, allowing The Word to be spread without fear of communications being intercepted.
Sympathetic parents left out books on politics, rhetoric, planning, engineering: the youth devoured these, fining in each nuggets of helpful knowledge. Evening discussion groups brought together all the subjects and synthesised strategy.
Within a year, The Movement was unstoppable. The teens were fit, strong, disciplined, educated, organised. They went public.
The only dissenting voices were heard from the manufacturers of mobile devices and the vendors of services on same: with all their time spent in the meetings, from half a dozen at a time to a sports audience of thousands, the teens no longer used their devices for anything beyond texting dates and times.
The New Revolution was complete.
