The Protocols of the Elders of CTHULHU VII. Arms Races

The nature of the invitation to Schloss Braunschlag was such to rip the tongue out of a man’s head.

The fellow, seated across from me, near the front, with his back to the window overlooking Lake Totenkopf, started to come to his feet, beginning to raise his hand. His mouth opened, and he nearly uttered the first word in response to the reptilian tones of the speaker.
But all that came out of him was “Ugghh,” and he fell forward. There was a thump, oddly hollow in tone, as his forehead struck the apex of the table, where it deviated slightly from a pure rectangle to form a stretched hexagon.
No one moved to help the man as he lay there, head gashed dramatically, but oddly, without the sort of blood welling or flowing that should have occurred. The terror level in the audience intensified further. No one helped him. It was my job to write it all down. Why wasn’t anyone helping him?

“The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces–are all essential for the completion of the aformentioned plans.

Our pen may be orders of magnitude more powerful than the sword, but, nevertheless, getting ventilated by a scimitar can slow even us.
When crises come, as needs they must, we shall not let them go to waste. They let us do things, with our inadvertent, sad purpose, you understand, that are otherwise impossible.
In particular, focus on crises as a means of identifying leadership, both on our side and theirs. Leave the blodletting to those below you; focus on the bigger, diabolical picture.
We hold the upper hand, but must not get cocky. Let the agitation of the moment cause the proletarian cream to rise to the top, that we may scrape it off.
More will be said later of the press, but understand that information is more important a lever of power than warheads on foreheads.
The what, where, when, why, and how, scope, public perception, and legal ramifications of brains decorating a wall are more significant for those remaining alive than the question of who just became famous.
Thus, our control of the media must remain absolute. All competing channels of information flow must be subverted or, if necessary, silenced.”
