*Urgent Alert* to Comrade Richard, Comrade Reed, and fellow members of the
Inner Circle:

We must act quickly. The traitors are on to our methods, yet they
have, as of yet, failed to notice the fact that we are presently without
military support and that in this media we can not control their thoughts
through the threat of force. We must quell this uprising before they
awake to the fact that they are /as powerful/ as we in this domain.
Comrades, we have been lucky so far. They are still pointing to us and
decrying the power we have over them. This works in our favor, for as
long as they /believe/ we can manipulate them, we still can. Let us hope
that they do not realize their own autonomy and choose to take
responsibility for the thoughts they hold. As long as they see themselves
as tools of the State (that is you and I comrades Richard and Reed) we can
continue to weld them as such. As it is written in Stalins great book, Da
Biblki, "For they have eaten of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge and
know of Good and Evil, now they must be cast out lest they eat of the Tree
of Life and become as us."
