The Protocols of the Elders of CTHULHU VI. Monopolies

There was almost temptation to engage in conversation, but also fear. They were non-verbal men to begin with, and the nature of the meeting engendered neither warmth nor loquaciousness.

The one attendee I thought I recognized seemed to grow more restless. It was obvious that he’d amassed his power and fortune by being more a listener than a speaker. But even such a one has a limit, and his appeared near, as the brow furrowed, the corners of the mouth turned down, the eyebrows came together, and the man awaited his moment to speak.
But that moment was elusive, as the speaker, having laid out the vision for CTHULHU’s global government, which would wrap itself around the UN and break it like the kraken of old on some clipper ship (the actual kraken, now retired, having declined the offer). That world government would monopolize the business of governing, and control a host of other monopolies beneath it.

“While our useful idiots are shouting from the mountaintops about their desire to help the common man, to take affirmative action to equalize opportunity, to shrink the gap between rich and poor, to raise the global standard of living, they shall of course be achieving an opposite result.

We shall raise the rate of wages which, however, will not bring any advantage to the workers, for at the same time, we shall produce a rise in prices of the first necessaries of life…we shall further undermine artfully and deeply sources of production…

As our sense of humor is firmly rooted in large-scale misery, we find this hilarious. And why not? Those who peer down from above have laughed at the varying shades of mortal pretension since Icarus.
We shall pervert the concept of “industry”, so that it loses contact with existential value, and becomes bound to the notion of “whatever makes money”. We, of course, control the money. We win.
Consider labor unions, and their monopoly control of manhours. Starting with the legitimate concern of unsafe work practices and child explotion, we have grown labor unions into the greatest anti-labor tool imaginable.
The workers were robbed to buy politicians. Those bought politicians became word processors churning out reams of ruin, legislation that constricted the noose around the necks of the actual workers, while employing more and more administrators, organizers, and other non-production people.
We can nod and wink while unions, particularly those composed of civil servants, pillage the populace. We let their foolish investment managers give us their treasure. When we initiate the crisis, these bankrupt governments collapse, and fail upward to our global government.
It’s a win-win-win: they give us their money, they give us their political power, they give us their souls.
About the only apparent problem will be the lack of challenge. We may need to clue them in towards the end, so that the victims are conscious as we devour them, or lose the entertainment value entirely.”
