Citizen Journalism with a Better Flavor

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." -- Sir Winston Churchill
The process which, if not checked, will abolish Man goes on apace among Communists and Democrats no less than among Fascists. The methods may (at first) differ in brutality. But many a mild-eyed scientist in pince-nez, many a popular dramatist, many an amateur philosopher in our midst, means in the long run just the same as the Nazi rulers of Germany. Traditional values are to be ‘debunked’ and mankind to be cut out into some fresh shape at the will (which must, by hypothesis, be an arbitrary will) of some few lucky people in one lucky generation which has learned how to do it." -- Reverend John Richardson [1.]
Mátyás Corvinus was not happy. He had evacuated himself and his staff from the Centre for World Peace as the Israeli war began. 1,582 miles away in Moscow, he was surprised at the turn of events that had transpired. Baghdad was now occupied by Israeli forces. Israel had indeed taken this latest aggression by her neighbors as a 'last straw,' and moved quickly and decisively to expand to more defensible borders. Clearly he would have to address the world about this 'intolerable aggression,' but he had an immediate and embarrassing problem: He was suddenly in need of a capital.
As more information on the disappearances came to his attention, he found a solution. The Northern Hemisphere seemed to have lost most of her population. Here was a wonderful fairgrounds with state-of-the art translation technology, broadcast capability and plenty of room for his emergency command centre! For some reason there were very few people left in the Alaska and Siberia Republics. Securing the great bridge would be another extremely valid reason for this move. The remaining leaders of the world would be summoned into emergency session at the Fairgate Hall of Representation. The situation required leadership. It was time for Corvinus to make his move!
Ladies and gentlemen," Corvinus began; "The events of the past few days have turned our world upside-down. Most of us have friends or loved ones who have not been located. My condolences go out to you. The efforts of my staff to find them will be relentless. We are trying to learn exactly how Billions of people seem to have vanished."
By now you have heard the theories put forth on TV. Let me restate what IS clear at this point. It is premature to assign responsibility to 'space aliens' or some 'act of G-d,' but it IS clear that this involves some plot or energy of immense proportions. It would seem that there is a pattern, as whoever has done this has taken from us the flower of our youth, along with that there are those who might be considered spiritual people, but there is some concentration to this pattern that must be noted as well. Of the ADULTS who have been taken, it seems a common thread that they were under the influence of such writings as the 'Priscilla and Aquilla Guides,' such as the one I am holding. It is used along with the old texts to infuse the reader with the sense that the Divine will actually speak into and redeem their lives! I cannot emphasize enough how DANGEROUS this is!
As you know, there is great danger in assigning value to things outside one's subjective judgement. 'Absolute Truths' create hateful fanatics who might seek to eliminate those whom they find outside of their narrow realities. We at the Centre for World Peace have always stood for tolerance and diversity, knowing that there are many equally valid statements of 'truth.' Acceptance of one another requires that we lay aside such harmful notions such as believing that G-d, family and country are worth dying for.
The world is in great need of healing right now. It need decisive leadership. To that end I have gathered with the remaining leaders of the world. They agree with me that it is time to bring humanity together... it is time for WORLDSTATE! Worldstate will bring an end to war and inequity. Worldstate will mean humanity will finally step into its Golden Age! But it will require sacrifice. We must give up our claims to individual and national sovereignty as well as the notion that protecting our own flesh and blood is a noble thing! The State requires our allegiance if it is to become the source which supplies our needs.
Worldstate can and will provide equally for all. The great Progressive experiments of the past failed, not because they were not worthy and good, but because they were diverted by evil men or thwarted by opposition. They were simply not big enough to overcome this and so they fell. Today's Worldstate is too big to fail. Worldstate will have the momentum to usher in a bright new era of hope and change."
And so the world came to the World's Fair. Mátyás Corvinus was ready to redistribute the ill-gotten treasure of the North-lands with the people of the world. But he had to eliminate any opposition that remained in order to do so.
