The End of History.
Steve turned to me. "You are right, Pete. I have been too kind to the fondi. The death star incidence was merely a minor reaction in the overall objective of the fondi. I should have pointed this out. It may also have had a wider focus than just protecting the fondi's Africa project. It may be a hint for yet another policy shift to come. We may be getting close to the threshold at which the fondi will feel comfortable to begin the utilization of nuclear weapons. In fact, they have already published their list globally, of the initially targeted nations, beginning with all the big nations that don't have nuclear weapons, who are weak, who can't fight back."
"Let's not forget that the wholesale depopulation of our planet is still on the fondi's agenda," I interjected.
Steve agreed. "That's what my friend tells me from within the fondi," said Steve. "They don't know yet to what extent they want to do this. My friend thinks that they will carry the depopulation project to whatever extent is required for them to achieve total and unchallengeable world domination, for all times to come. That's their primary goal. The call this among themselves their 'end of history' project. They mean by this, that the development of the human spirit, that has been carried forward through all of history, will be brought to an end forever, when their goal is reached. The 'end of history' policy is the fourth synarchist policy that has been developed by the fondi. They don't say much about this policy anymore, neither do they talk about the depopulation project anymore, openly. This doesn't mean that these policies are no longer on the agenda. It only means that there is some opposition unfolding against the method of carrying out their primary policies. There is a growing opposition developing against the timing and the extent of the depopulation policy, even within the fondi. Of course, the 'end of history' policy is still firmly entrenched in their little minds. They dream of an empire that humanity can never recover itself from. That dream still governs their day to day objectives. It is reflected in everything they do. As they see it, history ends when the notion of good ends, as an element of humanity. It is their determination to bring that about. As they told Pete in Venice a long time ago, there exists no power in the world that can stop them. They made sure that such a power could never be developed."
"So far, their prediction has been correct," I interjected. "We have not been able to even hinder their game one tiny bit. In fact, they are winning against us, big time. Of course, we can declare an end to this history of their winning, by turning the game against them. We have to do this, if we want to survive. Their next target may be the destruction of the United States of America, their old arch enemy from the day the USA was perceived even as an idea. And they will do it most likely with our own help, just as we have always played their game in the past. But why shouldn't we be able to prevent this final assault on us? We may have failed in the past, but the principles of the universe are on our side. The fondi's entire fight has been to nullify these principles in the human mind. We can shift the fight the other way, by refocusing society's attention on its humanity. Our humanity reflects the all-embracing unity of good, the only intentionally created good. There is no good, apart from that which unfolds from our humanity. That good is universal. It unfolds from the divinity of the human being which a universal quality. All civilization is built on the universal Principle that reflects itself as the only source of good in the universe. And that unfolds right here, in us. That is why we will win."
Ross just laughed. "I can't believe what I am hearing," he interrupted me. "Sure, I have been out of touch with you for a while, but this is truly unbelievable. How can you even imagine that we would act against ourselves to destroy ourselves? That's utterly unbelievable. No one would dream of such a thing."
"It is intended to be unbelievable," I said quietly.
"You still don't get it," Indira said to Ross. She had been quiet until then. "If you look at what the fondi are doing from the standpoint of a normal human being, you will never get it. Pete is right. That makes it unbelievable. I had made the same mistake in India. You've got to look at the fondi's game with the eyes of the fondi. You've got to understand their game by understanding their mind-set, because they have no human objective. If you don't do this, everything that they put in your way will be unbelievable."
"Let me explain this," I said to Ross. "Let me explain this with a question. If you stood in the fondi's shoes today, knowing their objectives, understanding their synarchist policies, how would you deliver the final death-blow to America?"
"America ARE the fondi," Ross interjected.
Indira just laughed. "Don't you know anything? The fondi have no nationality, no permanent allies, no real allegiance to anybody. They only have their objective, their unvarying permanent objective, which is global imperial domination. Whatever resources they require to attain their goal will be taken as a matter of convenience and in whatever form they present themselves. Hitler was chosen by the fondi because he offered to utilize the Jewish people as a sacrificial resource for furthering the fondi's goals. Later they used the Vietnamese people as a sacrificial resource for a similar goal. As I said, they have no national identity. They use, whosoever comes in their way to reach their objective. Evidently, that objective involves the destruction of America. America has always been a sore spot in their eyes as a potential liability."
"Indira is right, America's possible humanist revival is still the greatest threat the fondi face," said Steve to Ross. "The destruction of America would solve this nagging problem for them, and that could be done easily in today's world, and in a manner that would bring the fondi closer to their final goal, all in one single step. That makes the destruction of America a tragically real possibility to happen, Ross. Keep this in mind!"
"So, Ross, if you were the fondi, how would you destroy America?" I repeated my question.
Ross just shook his head. I saw a tear forming.
"That is serious," said Steve to Ross. "If you understand their game plan, you can prevent it. This means that understanding their best options is extremely important. So let me answer this for you. How would I do it, if I were the fondi, I mean from the standpoint of simple physical science? I really mean simple, Ross, on a level that every schoolkid should be able to understand? Well, the answer is easy. Destroying things is easy. A single missile could easily destroy the entire USA as a nation, which would invariably lead to the destruction of much of the rest of the world. The missile for destroying America wouldn't even have to be a big ICBM. A submarine launchable missile would do the job; a medium sized one with eight or nine medium sized warheads, perhaps with five to ten megatons yield, each. Nothing big would be required. If the fondi were to target the U.S. Pacific Northwest with that, the USA would cease to exist as a nation."
"You don't make any sense at all," Ross protested. "I could see some logic in them targeting New York, or Washington, or Miami, or L.A., but not the Pacific Northwest. There is nothing there that is of any vital value to the nation."
"Ross, put yourself into the shoes of the fondi, then you will understand," I interjected. "Their synarchist objective is the 'end of history.' They don't care about physical value at this point. They care about reaching their objective, which they could reach by hitting the Pacific Northwest. If they were to choose that option, which may be the only option they have to reach their goal, they would hit the entire area from Seattle to Tacoma, including the Bangor nuclear submarine base and the nuclear power facility in Montesano. They might even hit Portland the Hanford Works in Pasco. That's our chief nuclear research center and spent nuclear fuel storage depot. Can you imagine what this would mean?"
