He tried it out first with one of the smaller compensation companies running ads onthe sleeper subways just after porn or daily prayer hour--right before “lights out”. Thecommercial showed a worker slumbering peacefully with a smile on his face lying on a bed of fluffy clouds. His family stood by at his internment in one of the premium viewalcoves at a burial tower gazing proudly at the double-size, 12 inch slot center-placedamong the others with a commercial grade gold-engraved name stripe. A religiousofficial gives final blessing and the tearful son steps up and says, “My father was a herowho gave all for his family. I will attend University, work my way to A Class status and build a seven acre paradise custom home for my family. My father’s picture will be placed in the large entry and all will remember him as a great man!”.Vulerummer and the other Lions were stunned when they saw it for the first time.They had it product tested. It was an audience knock-out with a twenty percent favorablerating in the C Class. And that was before they began to promote it with appearances bycompany PR people on the Lou Glen Show. All they had to do now was get the religiousleaders on board. Since The Lions had them fully leveraged, it wouldn’t be a problem. Itwas predicted that fresh hearts and livers for A’s and prominent B’s would rise over 50 percent the first year after the various governments rubberstamped the new policy intolaw. Carroll was a marketing genius and maybe even a future Lion himself.More available replacement hearts and livers would provide The Lions and the AClass executives even greater control over the B Class, who were always clamoring for more, more, more. With only one A Class position available for every ten B Classsuccesses, these people needed to see extra perks. There were always movements afootin the B Class to vote in greater reform. The Lions even promoted some dissention justto keep the illusion of Democracy intact. But the special “shift circuits” placed in votingmachines years earlier made it so they didn’t have to worry much about politicalmovements outside their control. They still allowed vigorous debate, but they had PrivateControl Mechanisms or PCM’s all throughout the different countries now.Ethan Vulerummer had accomplished a great deal in the ten years he had been at thehelm of The Seven Lions of Private Control. No man since the British Lord Rashling hadaccomplished as much. For Vulerummer, Rashling had been his childhood hero eventhough, at the end of the Second Great War, the Labor Party in London had set him upand he was stomped to death in the football stadium by an angry crowd. Following that,it had taken an entire generation almost for the Fascists to reinvent themselves. But noman in history had accomplished the kind of change that Rashling brought. In the midstof The Final War, he had exterminated 6 million Arabs, 10 million Asians, 5 millionIndians, 12 million Latins, 3 million Africans and every Eskimo in Alaska! Plus, over 70million males worldwide had been secretly sterilized.Eighteen-hundred years after Cristo had laid down before the wild lions in the Greco-Roman Coliseum, his gentle vision of world peace had mostly been realized by muscular men like Rashling and leaders of the post-war collusions who mapped out the variousspheres of political influence world-wide. The United Nations now had nuclear devices planted in 100 locations on earth and a commanding protocol that allowed twelve fulltrials for offending countries and a complete evacuation plan that meant only propertywould be destroyed if a “national death sentence” were to be carried out. And such athing had never occurred. Mankind had thrown in the towel on war.
