Once upon a time, there was a king who ran a small country. He wasn’t the sharpest tool in the box, but he was lucky to have a smart priest. And he once asked this priest a question, how to maintain absolute power if people regularly do their own thing and don’t want to listen?
The priest replied. ‘We need an enemy. I came up with one and called it a Virus.’
‘Who is this?’ the king asked.
‘Nothing, it is nothing at all,’ the priest replied. ‘One does not exist. But we will tell the people about an invisible demon who can travel from person to person and cause illness and death.’
‘But if one doesn’t exist, how can we prove that he is if no one gets sick and dies,’ the king asked.
The priest explained. ‘There are several ways. People are always getting old; some are sick and are dying. We will only tell them that part of this ghastly phenomenon is the fault of the demon.’
The penny seemed to be dropping and the king with a smile on his face told his adviser that he was happy with the thought.
But the priest continued for that is not all he said.
‘What is the most important group of people in our kingdom?’
Without waiting for the king to answer he continued: ‘These are old people who are already sick with various illnesses that are already life-threatening. I will make my subordinate priests treat them with drugs that are toxic. We just need a little bit of them and then we’ll say demon Virus did it all.
‘I like it but how will we get people to take their drugs without making a fuss?’
‘We will scare them with diagnoses. We will say they are attacked by a demon. Then we will isolate them from families and from contact with people. Why? Why? Because if they have been attacked by a demon Virus, they can pass this impulse to others, so they need to be isolated. This way we will make sure they die sooner than usual. Then we will count them and announce these numbers caused by the demon.’
‘Yes, that sounds good,’ agreed the king.
And the priest continued. ‘For our strategy to be successful there must be a small number of inexplicable deaths when seemingly healthy people get sick and disappear. This will help maintain the continuous atmosphere of fear. This is what we can do by distributing vaccines in some of the country’s corners. Am I the only one who thinks it’s called Vaccine?
‘Oh yes,’ the king happily grinned. ‘I’m starting to see the plot.’
‘There must be a test,’ continued the priest. ‘This is how we can show that many have been affected by our demon Virus. But they won’t die and besides most of them won’t feel anything. But we will count them as a demon. My priests will spread this method. It will be very simple. A jar of liquid will be shaken next to a person. If he is stupefied, they are affected by a demon. But we will use two types of liquids. One will stay clean, but the other always gets stupid.’
‘And what’s next,’ the king asked.
Then your highness will declare an emergency. You will say the only way to fight the demon virus is to isolate society. Everyone needs to stay in their own homes, all stores and deals are closed. This will increase control and can turn it on, relax a little and turn it back on all the time.
‘Yes,’ the king cried excitedly.
‘We still have sick people, of course, to take to hospitals and treat them with various methods, some of which are very dangerous. I have invented a device that damages the lungs. But we’ll say it’s a demon to blame.’
And then the king got an idea. ‘Is it possible for everyone to wear masks to contain this imaginary contagion? We will tell them it doesn’t allow you to breathe in a demon, but it becomes a symbol of human obedience ~ to your highness of course.’
‘Very well said,’ smiled the exultant priest. ‘That’s what we’re going to do. We will promise people a new method of treatment, a miracle created by your highness, a vaccine against the demon. This won’t let him go back to the future. Some of them will be poisonous and cause death, but we’ll say it was a demon.’
And then the king was suddenly filled with doubt. ‘Does the Demon Virus really not exist?
The priest gave the king’s question a little thought.. He realised that the not quite smart king himself can believe the Virus. If so, it will help to sell this story better and the priest can control the king himself.
‘We never know. We smashed the demon. Maybe the Demon Virus exists, we have uncovered him and need to control him.’
Yes, the king thoughtfully determined. We need to be careful though. This is why I take my task to protect people very seriously.’
