There is no price too high to pay for freedom as what happened throughout history for many colonies.
Yodo was freedom, justice, equality and Eco fighter. He did not like the hypocrisy of the United Empire (UE) claiming freedom, democracy and prosperity while imposing oppressive and autocratic rules that created austerity and captivity of its colonies.
One of the UE’s great colonies called Baritania had a King who was persuaded to call for an independence referendum that has the clear binary choice to either leave the UE or remain in the UE. Despite the UE’s collaborators, including the king, prophesizing disasters if people choose to leave, most people voted to leave the UE’s socio-economic domination and become independent. The King abdicated, and a Queen was chosen to lead the nation and negotiate a peaceful withdrawal truce.
The impact of Baritania leaving the UE, would cause an earthquake in its foundation, loss of revenue from its export, taxes, control and would encourage other colonies to take their independence as happened throughout the history of Empires. Therefore, The UE used all its power to prevent the independence of the great colony Baritania.
The UE has unlimited financial resource to influence many dishonorable conspirators who betray their nations for money or power. The UE had a truce with each colony that they cannot take their independence without a peaceful withdrawal truce to avoid chaos and economic disruption.
The UE used the leaders’ weaknesses for earthly temptations to lure them inside a complex maze of its spider’s web and once they are trapped in, there is no way out except becoming paralyzed preys living at the mercy of the spider’s web creator.
The UE bullied Baritania and offered the queen a peaceful withdrawal truce that is worse than remaining a fully controlled colony. The Queen of Baritania, her Nobel knights and the house of Senates started to fight each other, in a Mexican stand-off, whether to accept the Queen’s withdrawal truce option or reject it or leave without it or keep the status quo or find an alternative. None of the options has the majority in the house of Senates to ratify and people who voted to leave were furious about the betrayal of democracy.
The Queen narrowed down the options to accept her withdrawal truce or leave the UE without any truce. Most of the senators were corrupt conspirators for the UE and worked against the independence of their nation. The House of Senate did not even accept the Queen’s narrowed two options and the Mexican stand-off remained.
Yodo thought that a solution must be found to force a corrupt senator to confess his/her collaboration with the UE and snitch on all the others. The confession will cause a domino effect that causes an uprising in all the colonies and collapses the UE. It is not difficult to find the weakest link of a chain, break it and roll out the rest of its beads.
Yodo thought of a magical mushroom that can be converted to truth serum or drug, when sprayed in the air, whoever breath it loses the will to lie and tell the truth when asked any question. Yodo wished to get a magic relic from aliens that have the power to expose the conspirators.
Yodo started to get angry about the increasing numbers of conspirators. Even those who were patriots once betrayed the cause and became anti-patriots to serve their vested interests. The patriots who were Nobel royal knights disagreed with the Queen’s truce and resigned with honor, but the traitors remained in power and had no honor.
Yodo saw the balance of powers hanging in the balance between patriots and anti-patriots and the possibility of not delivering on the results of the referendum as the Queen promised. He was worried that the freedom of his people will be curtailed by the UE and the traitors would prevail.
Yodo thought of an uprising freedom movement motivating the Patriots to wear yellow vests carrying the national flag and millions of them march to the house of Senates to force them to deliver on the result of the referendum and leave the UE without the Queen’s truce and fall back on an international truce.
Yodo thought of persuading people to hire locals, produce and buy national products first and if necessary import from the rest of the world to stop being reliant on trading with the UE. Yodo advocated self-sufficiency as essential national security which enables the nation to shut down its borders and survive.
Yodo thought of a petition to demand from politicians to declare the sources of their hidden wealth to establish whether they are traitors or not? However, they have the power to hide the truth. Therefore, whistle-blowers will be required to investigate and expose.
Yodo is logical and believes in root causes that motivate people to take certain actions. He wants to know why and how politicians and authorities betray their countries? He wants to find out how the UE is able to create traitors? Is it bribery? Is it promises of remaining in power? Do they add drugs to their drinks and food to subdue and program them to betray their nations? Do they blackmail them? Do they give them paradise if they surrender and hell if they don’t? Are they trapped in a spider’s web with no way out? Are they members of secretive and sinister organizations threatened to obey and live or disobey and die? Are they just selfish megalomaniacs who deal with the devil to obtain wealth and power?
Many questions remain to be answered, and the truth will eventually surface like a dead body dumped in a lake. In mathematics, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line and in life, the truth is the shortest answer for all problems. The sooner we find the truth, the quicker we solve the problems and break the Mexican stand-off.
In the end, it is up to people to stand up for their rights and freedom. If they do not, some of their leaders are like false prophets promising paradise in heaven but delivering hell on earth. Some value honor and not tempted by money, others value money at any cost disregarding ethics, honesty, morality and care about themselves only.
The UE’s Mexican Stand-off
The United Empire (UE) learned from the loss in the 1st and 2nd world wars that, conquering other countries and killing their people will only create an opposing alliance who will fight back, and no matter how long it takes, eventually the invader will be defeated. Empires throughout history conquered and dominated for years, some lasted decades, others, hundreds of years. Eventually, colonies took their independence and paid a high price for freedom. Some Empires collapsed when their leaders fought each other, and others could not dominate their colonies with oppressive rules.
So, this time the UE used advanced and modern tactics instead of killing the enemies, bribe their leaders, set them up and blackmail them either with corruption or sex scandals. The UE created secretive societies and clubs lead by its Emperor. They were threatened with severe consequences if they leave or disobey the orders of the Emperor.
The UE managed to use the latest illegal psychological and chemical technologies to brainwash the leaders of neighboring nations and convert them to blind walking zombies. The Emperor appointed autocrat leader of the Empire’s the council who spoke in the name of the Emperor.
The UE ruled tens of nations for more than four decades. It gave them partial freedom and no final say in legislating most of their national laws. The UE allowed them to democratically elect their representatives in the Empire’s council, but autocratically appointed the main leaders of the UE council to dictate and have the final say. The UE’s most economically powerful nation, called Alamania was the Emperor allied with one of the most powerful nations militarily, called Farancia which became the right-hand loyal servant for the Emperor.
The UE’s nations started to get poorer slowly because of the myriads of restrictive rules, austerity measures and Alamania using its economic power to buy each nation’s vital sources of revenue. And if a nation wanted to take its independence, the UE shuts down their banks and deprive them of food supplies. Then conditionally lend them money with high interest to make them indebted to the UE forever. If a nation decided to have a democratic referendum to leave and people voted to leave, the referendum becomes illegal and repeated till people vote to remain.
Yodo had the insight to see the hypocrisy of the UE’s democratic socio-economic system superseded by an autocratic one. The Emperor autocratically appointed his loyal leaders to control the democratically elected ones. The UE’s leaders of the council served only the interests of Alamania first, Farancia 2nd and favored few close allies, neglecting the rest. So, democracy, freedom, equality and fair justice for all, were façades, not realities.
Yodo observed that the 2nd largest great nation in the UE called Baritania had no major influence on any UE rules and lost its total independence which started to affect its prosperous economy. One of Baritania’s charismatic politicians, who served as one of its representatives at the UE’s council, saw the autocracy, hypocrisy, corruption, bribery, manipulation of the laws imposed by Alamania and Farancia to dominate all the nations and create new world order upon its image and under its control. He also realized the total surrender of the nations’ representatives at the Emperor’s council who swore to serve the Empire above the interests of their nations. Most politicians wanted to be part of an Empire and get more money instead of being patriotic leaders in their nations.
The charismatic politician screamed an awakening call to all politicians, traders, kings and queens to wake up from their deep coma of total surrender to the UE. He advocated for two decades that nations must have their total freedom and independence, full national control of their borders, economies and laws. He challenged his king to grant the great nation Baritania a referendum to choose whether to remain controlled by the Empire or leave and become totally free to choose its destiny for better or worse.
Baritania’s king accepted the challenge and called for a referendum. The King was under the influence of the UE, whether he was one of its collaborators or not remains to be seen, and maybe a truth drug would reveal what’s behind the scene. The King used the nation’s available resources to influence people to remain controlled by the UE, although a democratic referendum means free choice without any influence, threats, misleading information and prophesizing catastrophes.
The King along with his loyal servants launched project fear, mislead people and advocated remaining instead of leaving, otherwise, there will be doom and gloom. The King threatened to raise taxes if people voted to leave the UE and become free. He discarded the wishes and wisdom of the patriots of the great nation and ‘autocracised’ democracy.
Politicians and people could not prove the advantages or disadvantages between leaving or remaining and the ballot paper was a binary choice, leave or remain. Some people were afraid of the unknown and preferred the status quo, although Baritania was a great Empire in its recent history and can become an Empire again, if its leaders and people unite. The majority were patriots to their nation, not the UE, and preferred to become independent, free to control their laws, balance the export with import and trade with the 7 billion living on the planet instead of the 500 million people controlled by the UE’s restrictive rules.
The King claimed democracy and the freedom to choose, but was biased towards remaining controlled by the UE, perhaps to satisfy his master the Emperor. He converted democracy into autocracy and liberty into captivity.
People were convinced that democracy is a binary outcome decided by people’s majority, and everybody should accept the outcome at any cost. However, anti-patriots claimed that democracy is not a binary option, without defining what democracy means! They said the Patriots are stupid to be Patriots at any cost.
Despite the threats from the corrupt authoritarians in power, the biased media’s propaganda, and the unknown consequences, the majority chose in a binary choice and democratic vote to leave the UE. The Patriots believed in the ideology that: There is no price too high to pay for freedom as what happened throughout history for many colonies.
After the majority voted to leave the UE against the King’s wishes and could not deliver what he promised his master the Emperor, he had to abdicate. A queen was chosen to take the throne, although she was like her predecessor advocating remaining under the control of the UE, she publicly promised to deliver the democratic results of people’s choice to leave the UE, to avoid their wrath and possible civil unrest or riots. She appointed a balanced number of Noblemen and women to assist her in managing the nation and negotiating with the UE a new peaceful withdrawal truce to avoid economic disruptions.
The silent war of negotiations began between the UE’s loyalists and Baritania’s Patriots. After years of cumbersome agreements on the terms of the peace truce, the Queen, kept surrendering the national powers one after the other so that leaving the UE becomes worse than remaining. The Queen kept removing the committed Nobel Patriots from her court and anyone who disagreed with her on the terms imposed by the UE on the peaceful truce.
So, some Nobel men and women honorably resigned from her court, but others had no honor and remained to keep their jobs. The Patriots considered those who remained as traitors who would sell away the resources of their country that worth billions to benefit from bribery of millions. It is like killing a camel to feed a rat. However, there is no proof that they are traitors, otherwise, they will be hanged. Nevertheless, the truth will one day surface like a dead body in the sea to reveal the crime and history will bring shame on those traitors.
The Queen tried to convince the nation that she got a suitable peace truce with the UE and it is the only one that can be done. However, no one was convinced because the legal text of the truce did not have adequate assurances, that the great nation gains its freedom and independence including all of its territories. The Queen was not strong enough and decisive to stand up to the UE and say NO NO NO we shall never surrender and sign a peace truce that keeps the status quo without gaining immediate total freedom.
People were disappointed, confused and fed up of all their leaders and started to mistrust anything they say. Few years negotiating a peace truce were wasted and its terms were worse than remaining a colony of the UE. People were treated as idiots blinded by the belief in the false prophecies and promises of their leaders. People were disappointed, the Queen promised to deliver a peaceful truce of immediate full freedom and full independence but negotiated an indefinite surrender.
People started to question her loyalty to the great nation and started to doubt that she and her loyal servants are pretending angelic unicorns but have hyenas’ hearts. People started not to believe politicians who promise heavens and deliver hell, mislead and confuse to force a bad truce that people should not refuse. The problem is; when most leaders are suspected conspirators and have conflicting opinions, people get confused what to believe without proof of the truth.
The Patriots tried to oust the Queen but failed, the Queen tried to force the Senate to accept the offered peaceful truce but failed and tried to change the unaccepted conditions of the truce but also failed. Then the chaos began. The nation and its elected Senators were confused and undecided of which kind of peaceful truce to accept.
The situation became like a Mexican standoff; the Knights/Senators are in a circle, each pointing a gun against another and if one shoots the others will shoot too and it might end up in all of them dead. The status quo cannot be resolved unless they are surrounded by a bigger circle to force them to lay down their weapons otherwise will shoot them all. But the sections of the bigger circle might also take sides and kill each other too and everybody die.
The house of senates presented to the queen many solutions and options for this Mexican standoff, but each is worse than the other, and without certain results or enough majority to ratify it and goes against the results of the referendum. People suspected those options as a conspiracy to delay leaving the UE or sway people’s decision to change their minds and remain. It has happened before in other UE’s colonies and they tried to repeat the same dirty tricks.
The Mexican stand-off in the house of senates:
- Leave without a truce
- Remain or vote again
- Truce of Half in – half out
- Queen’s truce worse than remaining
- Rejecting leave without a truce
People did not understand the additional options which were not on the ballot paper. They were given a binary decisive choice to leave or remain, and the majority voted to leave. After years of negotiations, they were presented with different and multiple-choice option!
Leave without a truce is what people voted for, to gain immediate total freedom and control of their destiny, borders, laws and economy at any cost. Freedom was acquired throughout history at heavy costs of spilling blood. In modern days, it is not much to pay the heavy economic price to re-gain total freedom and look for better future trading with the rest of the world.
However, most senators advocated that leaving without a peaceful truce should not be considered, because it will be a catastrophe! They repeated their project fear of negative consequences of the possible future. They argued without any evidence of the truth. Their theories were merely imaginative assumptions. In mathematical equations, there are constants and variables to work out the true answer. The anti-patriots’ assumptions were based on projected variables without known constants, and no true answer can be reasoned. In any case, people voted to leave as a definite constant regardless of the possible variables, whether they are negative or positive. After suffering for more than four decades of oppression and austerities, they wanted immediate and total freedom to control their destiny as a great independent nation.
People started to doubt the patriotism of the senates and the queen. They started thinking about ways to find the truth.
Remain or vote again means canceling the referendum that people voted for, and abolishing democracy. The UE’s autocratic system forces people to vote again and again to deprive nations of their freedom. Obviously, the UE benefit from controlling their colonies and have secretive funds enough to bribe all the colonies’ leaders who accept betraying their nations.
Humans evolved because they have changed, and those who do not, remain living in less advanced status and conditions. Keeping the status quo does not allow progress and even if the new status and changes are unknown whether they are good or bad, changes must keep occurring until the status quo improves.
Remaining controlled by the UE means, surrendering the sovereignty of the national and betraying nationalism. History shows that invaders always stole the gold of the countries they invaded. It is human’s nature when leaders are in power thrive on the weaknesses of any other. The more powerful never treat the weaker as equal. The rich do not distribute their wealth to the poor to make them equals. Humans are not fully and morally civilized enough yet, to treat others as they wish to be treated by them. So, remaining controlled by the UE is against equality, freedom, progress and the democratic wishes of the patriots of a nation.
Truce of Half in and half out means half freedom while people voted for total freedom! Nobody hops on a bus and keeps one leg in and one leg out! It is either in or out. Full freedom does not mean partial freedom. Although full freedom does not mean harming yourself or others, it means, others should not harm you and you should not harm them fully and not partially.
A truce with the UE based on half peace and half war will not achieve full peace without any future war. Therefore, it is not a desirable option and not what people wanted in the binary referendum. People have never been asked to choose to be half in and half out, and that does not mean they should change their minds and vote again, go back to square one and delay a peaceful truce again and again.
Queen’s truce worse than remaining. Why would people want to change to be worse off and not better? When the majority voted to leave no matter what the economic results entail, the queen promised to deliver on people’s wishes, yet after wasting years of futile negotiations with the UE, the result was simply bad truce. It is like a Mexican stand-off, leaving and remaining without leaving or remaining. Most of the Senate and people did not fall in this trap. The peaceful truce was an insult to people’s intelligence and their democratic wishes to have full freedom. So, the bad truce was rejected by the majority, except those who would sell their country to the highest bidder or wish to live as colonized slaves in the UE’s modern empire.
People started to ask questions and doubt the queen along with her loyalists who accepted such bad truce. Is it a total surrender to the UE? Is it convoluted and complicated retention of the status quo and worse? Has the queen been brainwashed by the UE? Has she been under threat or influence? Is she blind to see the details of the legal text of the bad truce? Does she trust the un-trusted bullies of the UE? Is she playing a game to finally deliver what she promised which is rejected by the majority of the house of Senates? What is the truth? Would people and history forgive their leaders lying to them and insulting their intelligence?
The national traders did not like the idea to change and disrupt the status quo of their businesses, because they do not care about national sovereignty. So, most of them participated in another project fear as they did during the referendum. They were concerned about their daily bread, not the national bakery and future supplies.
I say to the traders that 1st they should respect the will of the people and the national interest as a whole not small part of it. 2nd, it is common practice for businesses to update their computers and information technology systems to the last advances otherwise they will lose their competitive edge. Therefore, they should adapt their administrative systems to any possible changes to their status quo. 3rd, they must take advantage of the freedom to benefit from new multiple markets that exist within the 7 billion on the planet and not rely totally on the restrictive 500 million people in the UE’s single market that export to the nation more than importing from it. 4th, trade is a calculated risk and an adaptation to new trends, maintaining the status quo does not explore new opportunities for more profits.
Rejecting leave without a truce is undemocratic to the democratic vote in the referendum. When the nation chooses to go to war against the enemy, the elected senates should comply and accept the consequences, otherwise, the senates will be accused of conspiring with the enemy or cowardness.
This option is designed to lock down the Mexican stand-off to the point of no return, cause more delay, uncertainty, loss of investment and total destruction to the nation.
Finally, the queen eliminated the alternative options and narrowed them down to leave without a peaceful truce or accept her bad one. This way the Mexican stand-off of many opponents will be narrowed down to two and the majority wins.
Everybody started to prepare for the no peaceful truce and call the UE’s bluff that there will be war if the Senate supported the leave without a truce option as instructed by the patriots of the great nation.
Full or partial war results in casualties on both sides and there is always some price to pay for total freedom, independence and justice.
Learning from History
Learning from recent history, when one of the aggressive nations called Alamania was involved in the 1st great war and launched the 2nd world war but lost both of them after causing mass killing and destruction for most nations on the planet. The Western Empires, who won the 2nd world war forced western Alamania not to acquire weapons of mass destruction. The Western Empire formed a western defense alliance with many nations including Alamania, Farancia and Baritania, then peace lasted for decades. Consequently, the Northern Empire who also destroyed Alamania and occupied half of its land formed a northern defense alliance with other nations.
However, human nature for domination in one form or another and the narcissistic greed for money never stops, until humankind becomes more morally civilized and peaceful.
So, learning from history, hot wars that kill other humans and destroy their nations had never forced weaker countries to surrender forever. Therefore, new domination ways of other nations started to form. The modern war between weaker nations and the most powerful ones is not to kill and destroy others to control them but to create political, social and economic treaties, where the most powerful rules and dominates.
History repeats itself in different forms or shapes. The invasions of many Empires started with the power of swords, evolved to the use of guns, bombs, fighter jets then ended in giant nuclear bombs of mass destruction capable of destroying cities and nowadays it can destroy the whole planet. In the 21st century, a physical war may cost billions and cause the death of millions. However, economic and political treaties cost a few millions of bribes to political leaders without killing anybody.
After the devastating global wars, the Northern and Western Empires started a cold war against each other. It was silent and invisible. They started killing each other’s secret agents, stealing technological secrets and all sorts of espionage and sabotage, including toppling governments who do not surrender to their domination. In time, this kind of wars faded away. A technological cyber-attack war started using the internet and the media’s propaganda to manipulate people’s choices and interfere in their national internal affairs. The new silent war also evolved into economic sanctions to impoverish the weaker ones. The world domination is still evolving in a form of trade treaties and laws alignment among allies. And the latest form of a new war is evolving to use artificial intelligence, spying drones, robotic soldiers and methods to control other leaders.
While the Western and Northern Empires busy fighting each other silently in shadowy wars, Alamania allied with Farancia and planned to create a United Empire with secretive agenda for world domination and to split from the western defense alliance to gain its power of world domination again. The United Empire created treaties to unite and integrate tens of neighboring nations in its continent, with an ambition to create a new world order and dominate the planet.
The treaties started with free trading, but slowly and methodically continued to form closer integration to fully control the nations of the United Empire. The treaties and rules were designed to benefit the creators, Alamania and Farancia more than others. The creators of the United Empire formed a democratic socio-economic system of leaders from its nations, controlled by autocratic and technocratic rulers appointed by the creators.
All the nations who joined the United Empire started to slowly get poorer, lose their national identities, independence and freedom.
One of the United Empire’s tactic to control its nations is similar to pharmaceutical drugs companies who give people medicine that cures a disease but create another to keep them buying one of their medicines. They do not kill you or cure you, they keep you suffering to remain needing them to get better.
Alamania took the opportunity of not spending much of its money on weapons of mass destruction and lessened its contribution to the western defense alliance, to build a strong economy. Alamania learned from history that invading other countries and cultures using physical power and destruction does not make them surrender forever. However, did not learn from history that controlling people’s freedom, imposing austerity measures on them and depriving them of their independence will not last forever either.
Most leaders believed in the empire’s ideology of a new world order which considers patriotism to a nation is betrayal, because it is against the interests of the United Empire.
Some leaders were supported by the empire to remain in a high position in their nations and promised in higher ones serving the United Empire. They were bribed in secretive ways and hidden funds to preach to their followers that it is for their best interest to surrender to the United Empire and obey their laws. Otherwise, there will be doom and gloom and they cannot survive without the United Empire, although some nations were previous empires themselves and conquered the world.
The converted leaders became color blind to see the true color of the empire, deafened to listen to the hidden truth behind the treaties and truce. They were too naïve and believed that remaining in the United Empire is the only option for their future and well-being. The converted leaders became like domesticated dogs loyal and protective to their owner and waiting to be fed.
Some politicians have no conscious and have narcissistic greed for making money at any cost, including the betrayal of their nations. They mislead their nations, lied and lied till they believed their lies to be the truth and tried to preach to everybody like fake prophets, promising heavens and delivering hell. They sang beautiful songs to the listener, promised food and fruits to feed the masses, but took away all their pleasures and slowly took their treasures.
The oppressive laws of the United Empire started to cause rebellions and uprising to leave its control and become independent. A none-corrupt leader planted the seeds of freedom and independence. The seeds started to germinate and grow, pollinate others to propagate. Its roots started to deepen in the earth to support its trunk to grow branches and leaves then buds and fruits. The roots started to invade and crack the earth under the united empire’s foundation.
However, the rebellions were a powerless minority, hoping to influence others to sacrifice any price for higher freedom. But corruption invaded most leaders like a malign disease that cannot be extracted without destroying the carrier body.
One of the rebellions called Yodo saw the corruption of leaders, who are wolves in sheep’s’ clothing, spreading their viruses to weaken and sicken the united nations. He understood the secretive agendas and the underworld plots. He was with the powerless minority nationalists fighting the elite few who worshipped money, disgraced morality and ethics and had no loyalty to any nation or sympathy for the destitute.
Yodo could see the hidden truth behind the lies and misleading preaches, but do not have the proof to expose the traitors. Yodo did not believe in violence or killing the disloyal leaders to their nations. Therefore, had to find a civilized way to extract the truth from the corrupt and expose them to the world. Once, some of them are exposed, the rest will run away and hide or choose to fight till their very end.
But Yodo was not an expert in this field, had no access to resources or assistance from others. Besides, it is not easy to trust anybody or fight alone. The stakes were high, to live with honor or die, but you have to try the best endeavor to restore the balance of power.
Yodo kept watching the traitors working for the United Empire and the surrender of nations one after the other, no matter what people wish, the United Empire decides whether they eat meat or fish. The United Empire was autocracy hiding behind democracy. The United Empire gives its nations the freedom to choose whether they can wear black or white shoes. However, their loyal dogs tell people to choose black and if people chose white, the freedom of choice becomes illegal and they have to choose again till they select black. There is no freedom of choice between black or white, there is the choice of the Empire’s color and its desire.
The United Empire kept creating more laws for integration that remove the concept of national independence, nationalism and patriotism. The laws of the treaties and their interpretations were controlled by the United Empire’s court of justice that is controlled by Alamania and Farancia.
The laws of the treaties were too complex for any leader to understand, contained details that exceed the contents of many encyclopedia books and no leader had the time to read them all, yet signed those treaties without understanding the consequences. In a nutshell, leaders surrendered the sovereignty of their nations for a price or a bribe or to remain in power.
Many nationals wanted their nations to leave the United Empire and to be free, but their leaders managed to break their wills. Most leaders betray the trust given to them by their electors, preach democracy but execute an autocracy hidden in legal texts of technocracy.
