Nine months before the election, through the
actions of Ryan’s organization, there was a contrived oil shortage,
and the price of oil skyrocketed to new heights. Erika, now the
ultimate gatekeeper to the world’s energy supply, controlled the flow
of oil. Although oil is not the only means that she has to bring about
change, it certainly is one of the most efficient and effective. This
time, Erika implemented the shortage of oil, obeying Ryan’s
corporate mandate, as a means to prevent the next big war from
occurring. Her corporate analysis from years earlier forecasted the
coming of a long-term depression fostered by greed and a myopic
ideological view. A subsequent world war would metastasize from
its disastrous ruins, consuming the planet. Erika would not let this
happen. As if by magic, in the public’s view, there was a precipitous
drop in the price of oil just three months before the election. But
the shockwaves had already coursed throughout the global economy,
rippling around the world. The financial buttresses that had
propped up a false economy were removed, and like a house of
cards, the top floors began to crumble. I watched as the markets
tumbled, and I felt the ubiquitous fear that their freefall generated.
As the markets came crashing down, people grew wide-eyed in
disbelief, watching their savings vanish, their businesses close, jobs
sublimate. Wondering just how bad the global economies might
ultimately be, people braced themselves for the inevitable bottom.
An economic abyss yawned, ready to swallow lifetimes of work
encompassing so many peoples’ dreams. But like a controlled reaction
Ryan’s people accomplished an economic reset, bringing us
back from the brink with a screeching halt just in the nick of time
from an otherwise certain economic disaster. Eventually a newer
and more resilient foundation would be built, paving the way to a
better future.
I will not paint a bright and sunny picture of what has happened.
People are still struggling economically, and there is much more left
to do to stabilize the economy. These types of changes take years to
accomplish. The economy is like a large oil tanker that needs to
change its direction—the tanker’s pilot plans miles in advance what
maneuver to make to bring about a smooth transition in its course.
That said, look around and see how the economic collapse and the
controlled landing that Ryan had orchestrated through his organization
compares to the crash of 1929-1939. “But, banks were not
insured back then. Therefore, peoples’ savings simply sublimated—
vanished!” you say. While that is true, other forces were at work
during this last economic crisis that would have generated equally
devastating effects on world economies—people would have been
jumping out of windows to their deaths as in the crash of 1929.
Yes, that was a crash, not a smooth landing like the one we just
had. It was a depression, not a recession, which meant there was no
economic growth for ten years. Back then, the unemployment rate
hovered at twenty-five percent, and it became a worldwide depression—
most of the world struggled to survive. This is where we were
recently heading had Ryan’s organization, with Erika at the helm,
not intervened. Finally, there were no nuclear weapons during the
Great Depression—the consequences today would be much more
horrific should a world war erupt. As we have learned over time,
there is no war to end all wars, and nuclear weapons could bring
about the annihilation of the planet as a whole.
