"DECEMBER 14, 2017: THE DAY FCC CHOOSES TO REPEAL NET NEUTRALITY HAS COME. THIS IS THE DAY THAT CORPORATE GREED AND COMMUNISM WILL BE THE UPRISING. EVERYONE WILL SOON FALL UNDER CORPORATE GREED. SOON EVIL BUSINESSES WILL RULE THE WORLD" Excerpt from an interview with a paranoia-fueled supporter who was on a failed campaign to save net neutrality...
Slash, drop and you're dead...
The Luxurian and it's follower, Icarus Elijah Sidan, had made it's way to the gates after slashing the armed guard dead. However, upon reaching the entrance, the gates were budged shut.
"Looks we have to find a way in-" The Luxurian, an ancient sentinel balmung was interrupted as swarms of machines burst out of the gates.
"Come on Icarus! Fight, and prove yourself!" Luxurian said with a determined emotion on him.
Icarus brandished Luxurian and summoned heavy spikes, piercing slashes, and even pin-pointing deadly sparks on the machines. Icarus, despite being by himself was already pretty powerful for a huge swarm of machines.
The machines kept on going, but Icarus's bond with the Luxurian was too strong for the machines to handle. Icarus soon swiftly beat machine after machine, until there were none left.
"Alright, let's go!" Icarus said, sheathing Luxurian on his back. After taking a few steps forward, all of a sudden, there was a dark evil laugh let out, which sounded like it came from the HQ.
Then, swarms of never-ending machines kept on swarming and swarming more aggressively. Icarus tried to fight them off, but then there were too much. Icarus was severely outnumbered and on the verge of being crushed to death...
It is the year 2027. Corporate greed and communism had conquered and destroyed businesses across the worlds, the Internet had to be shut down because no one was paying for it, however that didn't stop evil businesses from continuing their corporate greed powers. They even had the audacity to increase prices, because money was all they cared about. Yes, the only government the entire world rules under is communism, and they don't care about people anymore, they only care about working relentlessly and being overpricing which they ultimately shrug off.
However, businesses were destroyed, but only the the large businesses are still thriving. Social media had to be abandoned due to mass overpricing everywhere. No more internet, no more digital programs. Schools had to be shut down. Little did they know, that the Government, known as the Dark Mission, is planning on annihilating humanity and replacing them with machines, meaning there would be no more humans in the future, only machines. It is only a time before it is a time of man vs machine.
Because of the uprising greed and dire living, the world's population dwindled from billions to only 48 million left. Most were killed due to the undying conditions of corporate greed and starvation, some were even killed by the Dark Mission agents and were taken away. 95% of the total population is only the greedy that manage to survive with enough money, and the 3% consist of the Dark Mission, and the 2% are the remaining rural families, which are extremely endangered at the point. It's not even a tragedy, this is called the Miseocaust, where people would succumb to corporate greed and suffer even the worse of the worst; they lose their homes because they are unable to pay for more, etc.
Icarus Elijah Sidan, was living in a home alongside the family. They had to discard a lot of things, including TV, cable, and even Internet as well, because they were not willing to pay more for overpriced low-quality junk. However, one day, a urgent letter from the Dark Mission came into the mail.
"What's this?" Icarus said, taking out the letter and then opening it. "Damn, just ransom that the Dark Mission wants us to pay monthly. This is why people are losing their homes too much, evil governments want us to pay ransom to them or else suffer dire consequences. If I have to dare lose my home, I'll be escaping."
Icarus had been sheltered in his home for around 10 years. His family was a rich family in the beginning of the light times, but as the evil times went by, the family lost about $500,000 to the Dark Mission for ransom, and yet this is probably it for the ransoms they have to pay, as many people managed to survive for a while by paying enough ransoms.
Icarus was also a follower of Goddess Zydona, the holy goddess of life, faith, and hope. She says in her book known as the Taerin is that the sin of greed represents massive wanting of something evil, and lust is the hazing of the human soul. Even though she created the world millenniums ago, people forgot about her faith, and most people now focus on the worst deadly sins; greed, wrath, gluttony, and the worst of all but not a deadly sin, chaos.
Chaos was what the Dark Mission wanted it's followers to do, take over the world and start launching a chaotic overhaul with machines to do all the work for them. The Dark Mission was established by an agent who wanted to overthrow all of the power, yet he managed to overthrow it by himself by unknown means, which to right now is classified to himself.
Icarus, looking out the window, watching the stars. He even saw a shooting star fall down. Considering this opportunity to find out his true opportunity and maybe find a way to change the world; he thought to himself.
"If only if I could run away, and find a way to defeat the Dark Mission, I could be a game-changer." Icarus said, before laying himself to sleep, holding his Taerin on his hand on bed.
Tomorrow, is where the ransom is due. If Icarus's family cannot pay, they'll be removed from their homes and forced to work as slaves for the Dark Mission.
