    I absolutely LOVED your story.
    Very well done indeed, bravo, my friend.

    A very clever parable! Congrats!

    You cant write "citizen" without "z". So when "z" is banned, citizenship is also banished.

    Excellent personification of a very original idea, lawrencelpy! One of my favorite lines was "I am no longer arrogant. I accept X, Y and Z. I especially love Y, as I love you." Your first paragraph mirrored your last paragraph...a nice tidy set of bookends to hold your "English town of citizens" together.
