Once upon a time, there was a measure of fun in the cancer. Then, little by little, the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger took it away. Starting with the rollerskating parties, they saw the occasion to ban things. Invariably it would be an isolated incident where someone did fornication after such an event, and they would blow it out of proportion. Before long, they took away the picnics and gatherings not for theocraptic items.
While they are removing fun from among themselves, they crack down on external fun. No more can you go to a worldly party, such as a school dance (usually adequately chaperoned). You are not supposed to go where worldly people gather for fun--this goes for music performances, live arts, and to a lesser extent to movies and theme parks. And if you do go to amusement parks, you are supposed to hand out wastes of paper to others that are there instead of enjoying the rides and/or attractions. This is getting stricter every time the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger opens its mouth about it.
All that's left is drudgery. You go out in field circus, and there are so many rules that it is all robotic. You are to say what the Kingdumb Misery paragraph tells you to, nothing else. Every foot placement is dictated by rules. Uncomfortable clothing is the rule, and they expect you to do this all the time. Children playing with pebbles, puddles, or twigs usually end up getting spankings (and beatings) along with threats of other punishments. Yet they are expected to spend all day out in field circus. The boasting sessions are boring--even the a$$emblies where you travel to a foreign country are blah. (I never saw a Canada trip that was such a waste as the one I had to make when we had a Grand Boasting Session there--no one ever thought of exploring the city or its attractions.)
For about the cost of a 3 day trip to Canada for a Grand Boasting Session, one could move from the United States or Canada to somewhere like Australia or New Zealand (probably one of the longest distance moves possible). You probably would get more benefit from doing so--and more fun in the process than a lousy 3 day Grand Boasting Session. At least you wouldn't be confined to the motel room, a place where you can get food, and the a$$embly venue. (And, once you get there, you can enjoy it to the full.)
