What could be more psychedelic than the famous Twilight zone ?
In a future totalitarian state, Romney Wordsworth (Meredith) is a man put on trial for the crime of being “obsolete”. His occupation as a librarian is a crime punishable by death, as the State has eliminated literacy. He also believes in God, also punishable by death, as the State has declared that there are no Gods. He is prosecuted by the Chancellor (Weaver), who announces in front of the assembled court that Wordsworth, in not being an asset to the State, shall be liquidated.
