The watershed decades of the early Twenty-first Century first exposed the evil, decadent, and lazy nature of man while at the same time revealed the over whelming good of the population, the vastness of the decency of people, and the underlying industry of the previous generations which made it possible to stand on the shoulders of giants and unfortunately but necessarily so stand on the bones of those who tried and failed but advanced the causes.
Gary began to realize that the his life and expectations were an extension of the past that as he contemplated his choices he began to realize not the obstacles before him but the pathways and pedestals provide to him. Crooked though they may be with steep declines and inclines they were still leading him in a direction that seems to be in a positive direction. That the boulders and mountains of difficulties and challenges in front of him actually enables him to comprehend and anticipate his next challenge and beyond which then give him the strength to go yet onward.
Even though good seems to prosper because the world is actually getting better with each generation, evil seems to increase as well. No matter what good could be done there was always someone in the shadows contemplating the alternative and contriving schemes of repudiation and destruction. In actuality the bag of tricks was slowly but surly being emptied. What started out as temptations and enticements soon become deceptions and lies and eventually became assaults and batteries. With each escalation evil had to show itself for what it was and slowly but surly its ability to fool people was no longer effective after the GM quantified the outcomes and polled the people to determine what was desirable. With each successive iteration priorities were established strategies devised and the principles and precepts of the society were be inculcated into the each succeeding generation. Instead of being held back by his nature man was being freed by his nurturing and the persistent presence of the GM and what was becoming a tireless effort of the growing number of elite members whose purpose it was to mentor and serve.
How does man overcome his selfishness, insecurities, and obstructive nature? It is done through education, reinforcement, and friendly reminders coming from the GM at precisely the right time and place. In those cases where the individual is stubbornly resistant to patience, perseverance and sweet oil the individual’s behavior gradually deprives themselves of the resources they need and desire until it becomes physically uncomfortable for them and they are reminded that their behaviors are the cause of their own problems. Supplies stop becoming available and things stop working. They can become violent if they choose to but others in their proximity are warned and access is limited and the amount of damage that can be caused is limited and easily repaired. Eventually the tired, hungry, thirsty person gets relief when his behavior improves. The relief increases with each improvement and decreases with each outbreak. The mentors are ready and willing to assist. The lessons sometimes are painful but always justified, adequate, and appropriate. The cost of such behavior is calculated and the offending individual is always responsible for restitution.
