Before addressing the audience, he sipped the remaining cognac from the crystal flute the waiter had offered him.
Puffing out his chest, he swaggered unto the stage. The general's booming voice reverberated in the chamber,"Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for coming on short notice to this furtive meeting. It was imperative that I share with you the directives that will be discussed with the Global Nations United later this month. I will also relay some startling new developments to you that will not be shared beyond these walls."
His hard aggressive jaw, jutted out as he spoke to the ranks, "Each one of you here has played an integral role in the formation of a ten-nation confederation. The flawless execution of our strategic planning sessions has culminated in a New World Order. A revived Roman Empire has risen like a Phoenix from the ashes."
His taut, broad shoulders leaned in toward the podium, "As a result of of the collapse of the International Banking System last year, the confederation has overtaken the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank, the International Monetary Fund,the New World Bank,and the BIS."
Cedric, nice job of tying up loose ends with the Federal Reserve. We have been given total autonomy in deciding prime lending rates, discount rates, and money supply.
The demise of the banks and the stock market crash has put the confederation in a position to leverage the remaining amalgamated banks and achieve our goal of a One World Bank.
The general cleared his throat. "New social reforms are sweeping across the country. Plans to rid the world of environmentally toxic plastic, chemicals, and paper products that deluge our landfills."
Moving forward, we must eliminate the use of paper, checking, credit cards, and replace them with a RDIF microchip.
Holding up a tiny silicon metallic capsule, the shape of a grain of rice, the general said, "This chip not only contains a person's vital information with tracking capabilities, but it can be linked to one's bank account."
The recipient's DNA footprint, blood type antigen, and a clone image of an iris scan are also embedded in the chip.
Helmet, my assistant, has graciously agreed to show how relatively painless this procedure is to perform.
Extending his burly arm to the general, Helmet flipped over his wrist, and the general swabbed it with rubbing alcohol, before injecting the microchip beneath the round, fleshy part of the skin beneath the right thumb.
The injection caused Helmet to clench his teeth and grimace; he began rub his hand and examine the spot. The members gathered around to have a look at his arm. Besides a small welt the size of a bee sting, there were no other visible signs of trauma.
The general continued with his speech as the members returned to his or her respective seat.
Imagine walking through a security door with a wave of the hand, starting a car without a key, or turning on your computer without memorizing a series of passwords.
Health Care costs will be reduced by charging excess fees to individuals who purchase unhealthy foods or sugary drinks.
Now to the more controversial part of my speech, "The chip has tiny antennas that transmit a signal to our Global Positioning System that can track a person's location at any time from anywhere on the earth."
Slamming his fist on the podium. he began shouting, "Nothing... absolutely nothing, will escape our notice. We can monitor any financial transaction on the earth, billions of transactions a second. No more uprisings or political skirmishes. The masses must be contained."
The crowd erupted into spontaneous applause at the possibilities that existed with these new technological advances.
"There will be no more buying or selling unless a mark is visible on the wrist or forehead. An end to the voluntary program is at hand. In its place we will implement a mandatory program. Failure to obey this law will result in death."
This subject will be discussed further at our next meeting.
In due time, he could reveal his real identity to these imbeciles. Seared in the brain of the general were the numbers 666.
