We would live in a world where religious extremists would control the government and rule by ancient religious codes. b. We would live in a world where people thought only of themselves and never about sharing, working with peers or being part of a group. c. We would live in a world where people's individualism was stolen from them and everyone was forced to conform to one way of thinking. d. We would live in a world where commercial interests had taken over all of society so that all we thought about was buying goods and spending money.

Select one: a. This will be a light-hearted and warm story. b. This will be a serious and dark story. c. This will be a funny and comedic story. d. This will be a tender and sad story.
