“What would you do boss?” said the minion.
“Convince them our government system is superior to their way,” replied the “bête noire (the black beast).”
“You mean after two hundred years of following the le dieu d’origine éternelle (the god of eternal origin) they will now, out of the blue, chose to become imprisoned and destroyed like millions before them in socialist systems, and with you at the controls; like the wizard Oz pulling the levers! Glorious!” cried the minion. “
“That’s the goal, isn’t it! ” Interrupted the Prince of Darkness. “Did I not say, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
The boorish minion uttered sheepishly, “But for centuries this nation had central to its form of government a Christian heritage, a capitalist system, Will they give it up easily? I think not!”
Furious, the bête noire rejoined, “We’re winning, you little runt! Have you not noticed the alternatives have become few? Their leaders have become foul like us. Hatred and mocking have become a sport, they will soon give up, I’m sure of it!” There is no peace, no civility, our people have been doing a great job day after night in the media of shutting down the originator’s message. We are fortunate their politicians have turned to dishonest gain, bribes, and perverted justice. Remember way back when Samuel appointed his creepy sons Joel and Abijah to become judges over Israel, we worked hard on them and we turned them! They now shovel coal in the furnace division. Then the people decided that they wanted a King, fools they were, they had one, the Big guy hinself, they tired of hearing stories of old and could no longer see him, they became blind. Our plan worked then it will work again, we made crooked their leaders, they did not walk in the ways of the righteous, I think we’re winning the messaging wars again! Now is our time!”
“Boy, oh boy! That will surely discourage and displease the faithful servant and he might just give us what we want! But he is stubborn. If we can only get him to imagine the people have rejected him it will discourage him, and also our enemy!” said the fickle minion.
“The people cannot serve their leader if they forsake and serve other gods. It’s their law,” said the Prince of Darkness. “We have learned their head will warn them of their impending doom, if not he, his faithful servant will, the faithful always do.”
“Yes, but if they falter?” replied the “bête noire, ” If we can finally reign over them, we can make evil our work again and prosper in their nation. We have come so far, we must press on. Just imagine, we can position the lesser ones into our wars and let them run the front lines before our operatives; we can have them do our plowing and reap the harvest. They can further make for us new technologies and social media schemes to equip our mission. We have already taken the best of their companies and institutions and given them to our servants; oh yes, yes, only the best must we take from them to use for our work, the meek we have no interest in! Then we shall tax them beyond what they can pay and bring them into submission with elite socialist values, everybody loves celebrity. Our moral education campaigns will need to be more forcefully imposed and the inequalities of a capitalist society exposed. A special unit embedded in the Democrat party are well on there way with this one. This restructuring of socioeconomic order is critical to creating the necessary idealistic and democratic rule. Our intentionality must not be exposed, it must be seen as freedom and progressive accomplishment for the people. Surely, in the end, they will cry out to their God. But he will not answer them because they will have chosen us over Him. They will become like the other weakened nations. And then you the bête noire can take your throne.”
“What a plan.” said the minion! “When can we meet again?”
I hope you enjoyed this little scene from the dark corners of my mind. Of course, this is all fiction with hints prophetic truth and historical facts. I hope it will it make you think. Ask yourself this one question, what imaginable dark dialogue about our current culture and our current state of political affairs is playing out in reality?
