SPF: Callous Conscience

172-09-september-11th-2016

As bodies fell, the riot police stood silently by as the fanatic mob slaughtered civilians. Later, there were reports of women having their stomachs slashed open and thrown into fires.

Watching his State bleed, Chief Minister Ned Moody had a sadistic smirk on his face. He’d personally given orders to the police to do nothing.

Thousands of civilians from the minority community were killed that day. World leaders who always courted this economically booming country, reluctantly took action, banning Moody from traveling to their countries.

After a farcical trial, Moody was declared innocent of any wrongdoing and several years later, elected Prime Minister of this economically powerful nation.

Headlines screamed about the banned PM, but just as he’d confidently predicted, the ban was quietly lifted and the man responsible for the most heinous massacre was now given red carpet welcomes and standing ovations in parliaments and congress.

When the CEO of the biggest social networking website personally flew over to meet him, HR groups sent him bottles of hand sanitizes, each containing the name of the massacre victim, to ‘wipe off the blood’ from his hands, after he’d embraced Moody.

The double standards of this world were yet again shamelessly exposed.

    This needs to be a book! (A fiction book, and never non-fiction) Great take!

    All to possible in the world today. Good stuff.

  3. Sounds like a lot of leaders in this world today. Well written

    This is pretty scary because there is the possibility it could be true or has been true for a leader of a country. People seem to forget horrible things awful quickly. Glad the social networker guy sent him such a present. Good somewhere, somebody hasn’t forgotten.

      Unfortunately it’s true, as the storyline was inspired by events I came across online, right down to the hand sanitizers. Very true, we do tend to forget awful events in specific “unimportant” parts of the world very quickly. Thanks for your comment! ☺

    Extremely well-written! It boggles the mind how twisted we “civilised” people can be.

  6. This is more familiar than I’d prefer it to be, SW. Good writing. —- Suzanne
