Klaus was stunned. There he was, alone in his drawing room.
Where were his thoughts coming from? Was some entity haunting him and suggesting he should defect from the Great Reset plan and instead promote freedom and honor?
Had he made himself a slave to the Devil?
He poured himself a stiff drink, went to his computer, sat down, and began typing—
I just had a dream. Or was it a real visitation?
I believe I’ve served you well for many years. That should count for something.
My loyalty is beyond question—except for the questions I ask myself.
Of course, at the moment, fear is uppermost in my mind. So I want to know, are the rewards and punishments you hand out based on rational assessment? Can I count on that? Or should I try to run away and hide? Because, for some reason, I seem to be glimpsing what it might be like to be a moral man.
[AND SATAN BEGAN TO SPEAK.]
Hello, Klaus. Good to be with you. You can ignore all the rumors and reports about my habits. People see me as they want to see me. They’re thinking lake of fire or thumbscrews, whereas I might be thinking Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony. And to answer your question, of course I judge your contributions in rational terms.
“Did I carry out my assignments? Did my work make a difference?” That sort of thing?
Yes, Klaus, exactly. But you’re touching on the larger issue of free will, and the consequences of exercising it. What would happen to you if you left my fold? Would I object? And if so, how strongly? But think it through. If I didn’t allow for defections, if I tried to stop my people from opposing me, what would that say about my level of confidence?
You would be a tyrant.
That’s right. And a tyrant always loses. I’m after something else.
The capacity to make a superior case, a better argument.
I’m relieved to hear that.
You see, Klaus, I want to know whether you’re on my side—not just from base loyalty—anyone can command that with threats and force—but as a result of considering the pros and cons. Weighing the evidence.
There is evidence?
Of course. For example, why do I maintain my empire? And you can forget about God. If he exists, he’s no part of my equation. I’m not at war with a place they call Heaven. I’m not fighting. I’m in the convincing business.
And you want to convince me you have the winning side?
Let me ask you this. Assume we’re living in a world of war. That’s what this world IS. There is always a war. And then we have the notion of freedom. Individual freedom. From purely a strategic perspective, do you want to be fighting on the side of freedom? Do you think that force—however you picture it—will succeed?
It might. In the long run.
And if it did, what would you have? A unified army? Or each person drifting off, expressing freedom in a different and unpredictable way?
I see what you mean. There would be no adhesive to hold persons together.
So in the long run, they would lose. The question then becomes: Even if freedom is the superior moral position, of what use is it if it must go down to defeat?
But a pragmatic assessment can’t be the only measure of value.
I didn’t say it was. I might like all people to be musical geniuses. Why not? Think what kind of world we’d have then. But I don’t fantasize about it to the point of absurdity. Is freedom any different?
You prefer I should give up my freedom and sign it over to you.
I offered the option all those years ago—and you chose it.
Now I’m wondering if I made the right decision.
Because you can see the end. You can see your work has an expiration date. I don’t want you out there talking openly about the charms of Globalism forever. You’re afraid that when you’re through, I might cast you into a pit in Hell.
What makes you think I’d treat you so badly, after you’ve served me well?
I’ve heard stories.
And you believe them?
They’re stories told by people who fear you.
Why do they fear me?
You rule in Hell.
Yes, but do I demand and command all the suffering and pain that occurs there? Or do the residents cause it themselves while I stand by? The suite of rooms I’m preparing for you there—do you think that’s just an enticement?
I’m not sure. Are you saying you can’t stop others from inflicting pain on each other?
If I stopped them, what would I have? Anything more than a mass of robots? All of us are working out our destinies. Mine involves organizing and maintaining a place called Hell. I’m not crazy enough to want the job forever.
You see something more for yourself?
We all do, don’t we? Why are you talking to me? Is it just to assuage your fears? Haven’t you glimpsed a life beyond promoting world slavery?
I have, yes. Anyone in my position would.
Good. Then that’s a place to start. What do you really want? And how could I play a role—any role—in your effort to achieve it?
You want to help me?
Is that too far-fetched an idea?
I don’t know. Suppose I want freedom from you?
That’s the question. Do you? Do you want to go your merry way, picking and choosing one thing after another in your freedom? Or do you want a cause, a defined cause? A structure. Something made out of elements. A legacy that lasts.
I was trained as an engineer. I like systems.
So do I. Hell is a system, Klaus. Why do all these people end up there?
Because…they’ve lived immoral lives.
Yes. And whose fault is that? Mine? Or was their immorality their own choice, exercised in freedom?
They made the wrong choices.
Exactly. And Hell is the consequence. That’s the basis of a system. I didn’t invent it. I maintain it. I administer it.
That’s your job?
It is. I could choose to let all those souls go. I could free them. But I don’t. I happen to think that would be a bad idea.
Under the circumstances, you’re doing the right thing.
Correct. So far, you’ve been on my team. What are we telling the people on Earth?
We’re saying, “Far too many of you are committing and supporting immoral acts. So we’re going to install a system on Earth that restrains you. If we don’t, civilization will be destroyed. You don’t deserve freedom. You use it to make things worse.”
Very good, Klaus. You know how to drive a point home. That’s why I wanted you with me.
And you still want me with you?
Then why do I have doubts?
Because you seek perfection in yourself. I submit that’s an unrealistic goal. Abandon it. You and I are realists. We’re willing to take the bull by the horns. Humanity is not, all in all, a force for the good. We know that. So we propose to rein in that force. We can’t announce our intent in that fashion. We have to sugar-coat the message. This is all we are guilty of.
I’ve been telling myself the same thing for years.
So stick with it. Don’t back down.
I’m glad we’re talking so openly.
So am I.
What do you want me to do now?
Just make a choice, Klaus. Recommit yourself to our program. Global governance and control, to preserve a viable future.
The Great Reset.
In all forms and details.
I have nothing to fear from you.
You’re generating the fear. Put it aside.
Why do people want to run away and hide from you, or fight you?
Because they’re unwilling to understand what I’m doing. It’s too much for them. I administer the Hell where souls go, and souls go there because they refuse to change their ways. If I weren’t the chief executive, someone else would be. I accept my job.
And that’s it?
Of course, I could preach reform. I could try to convince people to do Good.
You could, in which case you’d have to assess your chance of success. Reform the masses, versus restrain them. Think it through, on a rational basis.
Satan, I see one more possibility. You’re sugar-coating your message to me. You’re talking in a way you believe will convince me to stay on your side. You believe the truth of what you’re really doing would be too much for me to take.
Ah, now you’ve come to the crux.
How do I resolve it?
Why are you asking me for help, if you suspect I’m deceiving you? Because there is a weakness in you. You haven’t burned it out of yourself. You have to trust your own judgment, Klaus. This is why I’ve come to talk to you. To lead you to this moment. To show you this is where all your doubts culminate. To show you THIS is what I want for you.
You want me to come to my own independent choice.
Trust me, Klaus, if I wanted to be a slave master, I wouldn’t be here now. At the top of every strong force, there must be men who do their work from a basis of unyielding personal commitment. Their own commitment, not someone else’s.
AND WITH THAT, THE GREAT DECEIVER VANISHED.
