The Smuggies live in a gated community called ‘Heavenly Correctness’. When Smuggies meet there at or between sumptuous meals their greeting to each other is always the same, day or night: “Right?” to which the response is always in the affirmative.
The Smuggies live in the fortunate land of ‘The Heavenly West’ high up on the plateau ‘Superiority’. Life is grand there as all possible things of use to the Smuggies was hauled up there from the ‘Doubtfuls’ who live down below.
Far down below the rainbow spectrum mists separating ‘The Heavenly West’ from the land of ‘The Inferior Others’ reside the Doubtfuls. Once in a time the Smuggies observe the Doubtfuls & shake their heads in anxiety flavored with a touch of fear.
Why should the Smuggies fear the Doubtfuls you say. Isn’t The Superior West perfect in every way & doesn’t it have many times the power & influence of The Inferior Others? Well, it’s a long story. Do you have a little time to spare to hear it told?
Our story begins long ago when the world was young. On our world called ‘NO ONE’S’. In those distant days NO ONE’S turned slowly & innocently free of owners. Each land had its own character & distances between them seemed great to those living there.
NO ONE'S state of innocence & lack of ownership lasted long, but not forever. Power was steadily & increasingly used & abused over the aeons. This won access to even more power & as the years wore on those with power stole more & more from others.
It was ‘The Inferior Others’ who lost most over time. ‘The Superior West’ (not yet called this however, but rather ‘The Barbaric West’ by Others) took as much as it could & dominate within the Others’ lands. This time was given names by both sides.
The Smuggies named the time of thieving & slaving as ‘The Great & Holy Golden Era’. The Others named it ‘The Time of Barbarian Thieves’. This trend of different names, titles & ways of perceiving continued down the many years from that day to this.
For the Smuggies the Others were always quite odd. For the Smuggies considered themselves far superior & conveniently forgot they had been called ‘Barbarians’ & that their land had once been named after them. They created myths to hide all that.
The main myth of the Smuggies was that they were & always had been superior, that they were wise, kind & thoughtful souls who always tried their best to help everyone. They assigned themselves the mission to help the Others be like them.
The Smuggies used myths of holy superiority to make their barbaric past irrelevant, near non-existent. Only the ‘True Wise Ones’, a tiny minority among them knew differently. Generally speaking the Smuggies’ words were most palatable to the majority.
The myth of holy superiority proved a useful tool. It allowed stealing from Others to go on even after some Smuggies began to think it was not quite right they had so much & the Others so little.
The High Smuggies didn’t appear to hear them however.
The lands of The Inferior Others, assigned the name The Doubtfuls by The High Smuggies, carried on as best they could. Some of them were even unaware they had been dubbed inferior & doubtful by the Smuggies & carried on very much as they always had.
The day of enlightenment for all Others came when Smuggies views resulted in the unfortunate occurrence of mass death by violence (M.D.V).
Initiated by some Others doing M.D.V to the West far too long after the West had initially done this to them.
The Smuggies were outraged, having long forgotten their M.D.V & all else they had done to the Others, & determined to teach them a lesson. This resulted in x1000 the M.D.V done by the Others. It was seen to be just by the Smuggies... tho not by all.
The Others land of 'Aggravate’ was decimated. Then ‘Irate’. In due course was 'Liberate’. Finally, the Smuggies & their helpers decided that yet one more Others land, that of 'Serious’ would also have to be dealt a lesson never to forget. A mistake.
‘Serious’ proved a land too far. By this time the Smuggies were acutely aware the cost of “helping” the Others was costing them too much & gaining little & that tho they'd killed so many Others quite a few of their superior men & women had died also.
So it was that proxy Others were paid & trained to kill their fellow Others & destroy their lands in ‘Serious’. However, after four years of slaughter others called ‘The Resistance’ stepped in. The plans of the Smuggies for ‘Serious’ came to nothing.
This is where we now stand dear reader. The Smuggies remain as smug as ever. They have discovered a pressing need to build on their myths of holy superiority. Now they are Super-Superior, Holier Than Thou & also Holier Than Anyone Else Could Ever be.
In the land of ‘The Superior West’ ‘The True Wise Ones’ are now under threat. Myths of superiority, holiness of intent & ever rightness are being challenged. The Wise are pointing out the barbarity preceding the myths & say present barbarity exists.
The True Wise ones have been designated 'Lying Traitors’ & ‘Enemies of the People’ in the “holy” land of the 'The Superior West’. This because the myths have become vital & those who comment negatively upon them are to be castigated & condemned.
The Doubtfuls, despite the ravages of The Smuggies over the aeons, have begun to grown in strength. This is quite unacceptable to The Smuggies who have become quite addicted to only they having power. This makes them anxious & very much afraid.
To cut a long tale short we return to our initial scene.
The Smuggies look down on The Doubtfuls shaking their heads in anxiety & fear. The Others have clearly not learned the lesson of their inferiority.
And steps must be taken to insure they do.
