The year is 2023. More specifically, New Year's Eve. President Joe Biden has just signed into law what possibly came to be one of the most society-altering pieces of legislation that has ever existed.

Said piece of legislation has been deemed The Alterations Act for the Mental and Emotional Health of Adolescents of 2023, or colloquially known as the Alt Act. The Alt Act restricted all forms of photo-doctoring in print and online in addition to outlawing the sharing of photos by anyone under the age of sixteen. The Alt Act was passed in response to an aggressive increase in depression and suicide rates for adolescents. The FBI had been secretly conducting research for years and gathering intel on the effect social media had on American children, and in the interest of public health, advised the President to pass the Alt Act in the form of an Executive Order.
