To Control the Whole World

The land and the people were once a great force in the blue-green world. They were the ultimate expression of their times.

Schooling was universal among the people of this country. They had perhaps the best medical care and scholarship in the world of their time.  Big universities and research facilities made discovery after discovery in the many fields of science, healthcare, and disease prevention and care. Influential people from all over the planet came for treatment in their hospitals. People from other societies sent their children to this land to be educated by some of the best scholars to be found…anywhere.

The interests of people throughout the country were looked out for by governmental agencies that monitored, and tried to respond quickly to, dishonest behavior by large companies and entrenched interests, whether governmental or civilian. This factor, among others, made the country a place that people from all over the planet wanted to live in and make investments in. The stability of the government and the land was legendary.  The stability of the monetary system was unequaled in the planets history. Law ruled for the greater good, not individual interests.

They were looked upon as the greatest moral force for good on the planet. Their actions and their responses to evil forces or intentions were always measured and intelligent, fair in all possible respects.  The law and the way it was applied to all peoples, was almost always fair.  The government operated under a set of rules that was wrought hundreds of years before, and all the subsequent leaders followed these rules faithfully.

Of course, in all societies there are always the criminals, the scum and the lowlifes, who try to subvert the system and take advantage of their fellow countrymen. This country however was unique, in that they looked out for, and quickly prosecuted, these bad elements, and as a consequence the people of the land mostly trusted their government and leaders. So the people and the land were prosperous and multiplied and benefited enormously.

The economy of the land was unmatched by any other society on the planet, past or present, and in all probability…future. Their monetary system was the most admired and stable standard by which all others on the globe were measured.

But, there was trouble ahead. Unknown to most people of this blue-green world, and to this shining country, there were evil things going on.  Influential and tremendously wealthy individuals and great secret groups and many companies were slowly undermining the foundation of the very countries and governments and people they fed on.  They wanted it all, it seems.

They got into positions of power and control by any means they could, including bribery, rigged elections, and assassinations.  And once there, they plotted to gain control of all means of production and wealth- making on the whole planet, and split it up among the elite class. Many people from this wonderful country were involved in and supplied help, money, and leadership to this subversive enterprise…some say they even hatched the plan.

To further their plans they realized that the many, many millions of people on the planet needed to be brought under a heretofore unmatched and unheard of control. There was too much freedom enjoyed by the common people. They could move practically unhindered and untracked around the planet. Advances in the sciences and communications made individuals able to quickly tell others in their own…and other… countries, what was going on. They could conceivably ‘call for help’ as it were, from other like-minded peoples. Money could be moved all over the world easily, and hidden if deemed necessary. People were free to demonstrate and contest the powers that be; they were altogether too unhampered and unmanaged for the purposes of the growing elite power structure.

The plotters desperately needed to change this Weltanschauung. What could be used to change the world dynamic in their favor?  How could they bring everything under elite control?  What possible scenario could be used as an excuse…to control and track all peoples movements and associations, and to track all money flow between people and nations, to keep power from accreting to the wrong people or groups?

They needed the ability to secretly spy on and disrupt any dissent from the common people, to strongly control and track movements of everyone, to have unhindered access to people’s personal affects, money and properties, to secretly remove and imprison anyone who was trying to upset the applecart. To render all dissent powerless.

What possible thing could the elite do to bring this vision to fruition and allow them seemingly legitimate reason to gain this kind of control?  Thereby trashing a brave, relatively new country…and an old world, in the process.

Hmmm.

About the word of me
Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.
