Not owning a television will be a criminal offense.



Ray Bradbury :
In the story, Leonard Mead, is arrested for talking a walk to get some fresh air. The following exchange happens between the police officer and him: "And you have a viewing screen in your house to see with? "No." "No?"There was a crackling quiet that in itself was an accusation…"iron voice…Where are you taking me?" The car hesitated, or rather gave a faint whirring click, as ifinformation,somewhere, was dropping card by punch-slotted card under electric eyes. "To the Psychiatric Center for Research on Regressive Tendencies."


Ray Bradbury, The Pedestrian. 1951.
