We’ve all been hearing about the shortage of N95 breather masks and ventilators and also about how the unemployment computers are crashing with the excessive loads of online claims. Considering all the knowledge our government has gained over the years on what to expect in a Pandemic, I found this lack of preparedness to be disturbing if not criminally negligent.
Let’s have a look over years at some of the reasons, warnings and chances the U.S. Government has had to prepare for this catastrophe:
In chronological order:
1) 2001 June 22-23 ‘Dark Winter‘ simulation (John Hopkins and Bloomberg School of Public Health) The Dark Winter exercise, held at Andrews AFB, Washington, DC, June 22-23, 2001, portrayed a fictional scenario depicting a covert smallpox attack on US citizens.
(From the website) About Dark Winter:
On June 22-23, 2001, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Bio-defense Studies, the ANSER Institute for Homeland Security, and the Oklahoma City National Memorial Institute for the Prevention Terrorism, hosted a senior-level war game examining the national security, intergovernmental, and information challenges of a biological attack on the American homeland.
(About the simulation) With tensions rising in the Taiwan Straits, and a major crisis developing in Southwest Asia, a smallpox outbreak was confirmed by the CDC in Oklahoma City. During the thirteen days of the game, the disease spread to 25 states and 15 other countries. Fourteen participants and 60 observers witnessed terrorism/warfare in slow motion. Discussions, debates (some rather heated), and decisions focused on the public health response, lack of an adequate supply of smallpox vaccine, roles and missions of federal and state governments, civil liberties associated with quarantine and isolation, the role of DoD, and potential military responses to the anonymous attack. Additionally, a predictable 24/7 news cycle quickly developed that focused the nation and the world on the attack and response. Five representatives from the national press corps (including print and broadcast) participated in the game and conducted a lengthy press conference with the President.
Some of those present for Dark Winter:
Director of Central Intelligence: The Hon. R. James Woolsey
Secretary of Defense: The Hon. John White
Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff: General John Tilelli (USA, Ret.)
Secretary of Health & Human Services: The Hon. Margaret Hamburg
Secretary of State: The Hon. Frank Wisner
Attorney General: The Hon. George Terwilliger
Director, Federal Emergency Management Agency: Mr. Jerome Hauer
Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation: The Hon. William Sessions
2) 2001 July 23rd House Hearing on Combating Terrorism: Federal Response to a Biological Weapons Attack, July 23, 2001 (Subjects of hearing were: Bio-terrorism, biological weapons and terrorism.)
Present at this hearing was the Honorable Sam Nunn, the former Senator from Georgia who played the part of the President in the simulation known as ‘Dark Winter’. The quote below was spoken publicly to the House Committee:
“I was honored to play the part of the President in the exercise Dark Winter . . You often don’t know what you don’t know until you’ve been tested. And it’s a lucky thing for the United States that, as the emergency broadcast network used to say, ‘this is just a test, this is not a real emergency.’ But Mr. Chairman, our lack of preparation is a real emergency.”-The Honorable Sam Nunn
3) 2001 September 12th Tripod II
Tripod II was a Bio-Warfare exercise scheduled to take place in New York City, one day after 9/11. The New York Department of Justice was one of the participants. (Likely never occurred because of 9/11)
According to Michael Ruppert [in his book titled ‘Crossing the Rubicon‘], ‘‘The ‘Tripod II,’ joint New York City-Department of Justice bio-warfare exercise, scheduled for Sept 12th, 2001 at New York’s Pier 29, and mentioned in testimony by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 9/11 Commission…”
4) 2002 SARS appears in China. SARS is a virus transmitted though droplets that enter the air when someone with the disease coughs, sneezes or talks. The outbreak starts in November of 2002 and ends by May of 2004.
5) 2005 January 14th Atlantic Storm (John Hopkins and Bloomberg School of Public Health) Atlantic Storm was authored and organized by the Center for Bio-security of UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), the Center for Transatlantic Relations of Johns Hopkins University, and the Transatlantic Bio-security Network.
(from the webpage) “How would world leaders manage the catastrophe of a fast-moving global epidemic of deadly disease? Atlantic Storm was a ministerial table-top exercise convened on January 14, 2005 by the Center for Bio-security of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the Center for Transatlantic Relations of the Johns Hopkins University, and the Transatlantic Bio-security Network.”
From the Atlantic Storm ‘After Action Report’:
“The summit principals, who were all current or former senior government leaders, were challenged to address issues such as attaining situational awareness in the wake of a bio-attack, coping with scarcity of critical medical resources such as vaccine, deciding how to manage the movement of people across borders, and communicating with their publics. Atlantic Storm illustrated that much might be done in advance to minimize the illness and death, as well as the social, economic, and political disruption, that could be caused by an international epidemic, be it natural or the result of a bioterrorist attack. These lessons are especially timely given the growing concerns over the possibility of an avian influenza pandemic that would require an international response. However, international leaders cannot create the necessary response systems in the midst of a crisis. Medical, public health, and diplomatic response systems and critical medical resources (e.g., medicines and vaccines) must be in place before a bio-attack occurs or a pandemic emerges
6) 2009 USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development) launches Emerging Pandemic Threats Program (EPT-1) a 5-year program targeting “the early detection of new disease threats; enhanced ‘national-level’ preparedness and response capacities for their effective control; and a reduction in the risk of disease emergence by minimizing those practices and behaviors that trigger the ‘spill-over and spread’ of new pathogens from animal reservoirs to humans.”
7) 2009 April H1N1 swine flu (WHO declares epidemic April 12th, 2009 ends by August of 2010) Swine flu is spread by person-to-person contact by either touching surfaces contaminated by an infected person or by encountering droplets produced when a person is sneezing or coughing.
8) 2010 May Rockefeller Foundation report: Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development(Lock Step scenario is of a global pandemic) (Judith Rodin (Rockefeller Foundation) gives keynote speech)
Excerpt from the ‘Lock Step’ Pandemic scenario:
“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s HlNl, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults. The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.”
9) 2015 March 18th “We’re not ready for the next Pandemic” (Bill Gates talk at TED conference)
10) 2015 June 22-26 Bio-Defense World Summit (Bethesda, Md)
From the website:
“Wrapping up its 5th year, CHI’s (Cambridge Healthtech Institute) Bio-defense World Summit brought together leaders from government, academia, and industry for compelling discussions and comprehensive coverage on pathogen detection, point-of-care, bio-surveillance, sample prep technologies, and bio recovery. Across three days of programming, attendees networked in the exhibit/poster hall, engaged in panel & round-table breakout discussions, and heard case studies by members of the bio-defense community: from technology providers to policy makers.”
11) 2016 June 27-30 Bio-Defense World Summit (Bethesda, Md)
12) 2017 January 10th Pandemic Preparedness in the Next Administration (Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security) (Anthony Fauci gives keynote speech predicting ‘surprise outbreak’. ( Note: Dr. Fauci is not only a key player in President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force but he sits on the Leadership Council of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.)
13) 2017 June 26-29 Bio-Defense World Summit (Bethesda, Md)
14) 2018 March Emerging Pandemic Threats 2 is published (United States Agency for International Development) (USAID Report)
From EPT-2 webpage:
“EPT2 is focused on mitigating the impact of novel “high consequence pathogens” that originate in animals with a goal of enabling early detection of new disease threats, effectively controlling those threats, enhancing national-level preparedness in advance of outbreaks, and ultimately reducing the risk of these diseases emerging by minimizing human behaviors and practices that trigger the “spill over and spread” of new pathogens.”
15) 2018 May 15th Clade X Exercise (John Hopkins and Bloomberg School of Public Health)
(from the webpage) About Clade X:
“Clade X is a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of National Security Council–convened meetings of 10 US government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response.
Drawing from actual events, Clade X identified important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience.
Lessons learned were distilled and shared broadly following the exercise.”
“Faced with a rapidly evolving biological threat landscape, government leaders in the United States and abroad are eager to identify long-term policy commitments that will strengthen preparedness and mitigate risk. Clade X illustrated high-level strategic decisions and policies needed to prevent a severe pandemic or diminish its consequences should prevention fail.
Similar to findings from the Center’s two previous exercises, Dark Winter and Atlantic Storm, key takeaways from Clade X will educate senior leaders at the highest level of the US government, as well as members of the global policy and preparedness community and the general public. This is distinct from many other forms of tabletop exercises that test protocols or technical policies of a specific organization.
In addition, exercises like Clade X are a particularly effective way to help policymakers gain a fuller understanding of the urgent challenges they could face in a dynamic, real-world crisis.”
16) 2018 June 27-29 Bio-Defense World Summit (Bethesda, Md)
17) 2019 June 17-19 Bio-Defense World Summit (Bethesda, Md)
18) 2019 August 13-16 Crimson Contagion Simulation
(From Wikipedia) Crimson Contagion was a simulation administered by the Department of Health and Human Services from January to August 2019 that tested the capacity of the U.S. federal government and twelve U.S. states to respond to a severe influenza pandemic originating in China. The exercise involves a scenario in which tourists returning from China spread a respiratory virus in the United States, beginning in Chicago. In less than two months the virus had infected 110 million Americans, killing more than half a million. The report issued at the conclusion of the exercise outlines the government’s limited capacity to respond to a pandemic, with federal agencies lacking the funds, coordination, and resources to facilitate an effective response to the virus
(From NBC News) (The Scenario) A large-scale outbreak of novel influenza begins in China and quickly spreads, first detected in Chicago in the U.S. and grows to pandemic proportion by human-to-human contact.
Stockpiled vaccines, per the exercise, are not a direct match to contain the virus.
Involved in the national test were:
- 19 federal agencies
- 12 states
- 74 local health departments
- 87 hospitals
According to the report, officials at the National Security Council in the White House were briefed during the exercise.
Among the key findings:
- Insufficient federal funding sources for a severe influenza pandemic
- Confusion on how to apply the Defense Production Act
- The current medical supply chain and production capacity could not meet the demand
- Global manufacturing would be unable to meet the domestic demand for personal protective equipment and ancillary supplies
19) 2019 October 18th Event 201 (Bill Melinda Gates, John Hopkins, World Economic Forum)
From the webpage: About Event 201
“Event 201 was a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions, confronting difficult, true-to-life dilemmas associated with response to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic. 15 global business, government, and public health leaders were players in the simulation exercise that highlighted unresolved real-world policy and economic issues that could be solved with sufficient political will, financial investment, and attention now and in the future.”
Excerpt from the scenario: Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.
Recommendations: The next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering. The Event 201 pandemic exercise, conducted on October 18, 2019, vividly demonstrated a number of these important gaps in pandemic preparedness as well as some of the elements of the solutions between the public and private sectors that will be needed to fill them.”
Considering almost 20 years of simulations and exercises that were meant to prepare the United States for a Pandemic how is it that at no time did someone suggest or demand that warehouses be built around the country, in strategic locations, and filled with the supplies and resources (N95masks, PPE, ventilators, etc) that would be needed for an outbreak of this magnitude?
Furthermore, considering the participation of the World Economic Forum in some of these simulations, and the fact that the ‘lock step’ scenario, the Event 201 scenario and others considered the economic ramifications of a pandemic how can it be that no measures were taken to beef-up computer systems that would be handling the obvious monumental burden of unemployment claims during a such a crisis?
It seems to me there are one of two possibilities of how we arrived at the point we now find ourselves with the COVID-19 Pandemic:
Possibility 1) Even though myriad Pandemic simulations were held over the years in an effort to be better prepared for a global outbreak, somehow the U.S. Government was so incredibly incompetent, forgetful, and/or lazy that action was never taken.
This possibility seems unlikely at best.
Consider this analogy:
Imagine a football game unfolding on the field: on the offense a center hikes the ball, the quarterback hands off to the running back who promptly fumbles. The running back in question does not fumble on every play but about every 3rd or 4th time he gets the ball he drops it. Ignoring this trend, the coach continues to send the running back in the game, and the running back continues to fumble the ball every 3rd or 4th carry. Near the end of the game, on the most important play of the game, a play that will either win or lose the game for this team, the coach puts old butterfingers back in. The play is another draw play, the running back is handed the ball by the quarterback and guess what…he fumbles the ball and loses the game.
Later at the post-game interview, when asked why he put the failing running back in on the last and most important play of the game the coach states: “How could I have known he would fumble?”
Is the excuse of the coach valid?
Possibility 2) The COVID-19 Pandemic was an orchestrated event, planned years in advance, likely by some if not all, of the ones who executed the simulations over the years. The lack of preparedness is intentional. It is by design. It aids in the acceleration and spread of the virus, ratcheting up the severity of the outbreak in order to justify the lock-downs that will implode the economy. Economic collapse resulting from a Pandemic will justify the new digital currency, mandatory vaccinations and other measures desired by the globalists.

InfoWars is NOT ‘Fake News’
by Hatrick Penry
As you may be aware mainstream media has produced a list of ‘fake news’ sites. On that list is Alex Jones’ InfoWars. I want to be perfectly clear: InfoWars is NOT fake news. It is however, a ‘limited hangout’ operation. That is to say: some truthful information is given along with a little disinformation and a whole lot of omission of the really important things you need to know. There are a great many ‘limited hangouts’ among the so-called alternative media, which really is no alternative at all, and their purpose is to flood the pool of information with lower level malfeasance while avoiding discussion of the really big stories like Plume-Gate. The effect is to set the topic of conversation, just as mainstream has done for many years.
(Below: logo similarities….coincidence?)
Back in 2011, when InfoWars refused to cover the NRC FOIA documents that prove an orchestrated cover-up of the Fukushima plumes and fallout, even when I prompted them several times, I realized something was amiss. InfoWars was not the only ‘alternative’ media site to ignore and/or block me or my information. Ultimately, 5 years after the release of those documents, I estimate less than 1% of the so-called alternative media chose to cover this monumental story. What does this mean?
The answer: an Operation Mockingbird infiltration of alternative media has occurred, just as it did many years ago in the mainstream media.
Why would mainstream media point the finger at InfoWars if InfoWars is just another limited hangout operation?
It’s simple: mainstream has been dealt a serious blow following the 2016 election and the establishment knows that droves of people who obtained their news from mainstream sources will be turning to the alternative media for their news. If you don’t trust mainstream media and mainstream media produces a list of ‘fake news’ sites then those sites must be legit, right?
Wrong. The idea is to make sure that those disillusioned with mainstream media are steered towards the establishment controlled opposition websites and personalities….either way you are being deceived, although as I’ve stated above, you will get more truth from InfoWars than ABC News for example…and they have give you more to gain your confidence: it is a confidence trick that is being played upon the masses.
(Below: From the NRC’s FOIA documents pertaining to Fukushima: proof positive that Navy sailors were sacrificed to hide the truth about how bad Fukushima really was…just keep changing the variables, re-run the modeling and kapoof! Now you don’t have to move Navy ships out of the way! How can InfoWars and Alex Jones not report on this?)
You need to understand that 95% of all media is being controlled to one degree or another….it is like the layers of an onion, the deeper you go the more truth they will give, to an extent. In the alternative media, where more truth is given, the lies and disinformation are much more effective. And in the case of omission, when 99 of 100 media outlets cover only topics A, B and C, then topics X, Y and Z are not noticed as being absent-especially when folks have never heard of them. Plume-Gate is a great example of omission. And it’s not lying if you just refuse to talk about ‘hands-off’ subjects such as the NRC FOIA documents pertaining to Fukushima.
On a fundamental level it’s all about control of information and no one does it better than the establishment. To be clear: as long as these wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing operations exist, especially in the numbers that they do, our freedom of speech is being subverted and perverted. The Constitution is being violated. This, in my opinion, should be a crime: intentionally deceiving the American public, in an orchestrated manner, especially when it costs lives. Arrests should be made, charges brought and people put on trial.
To better understand the establishment’s strategy of deception, I’ve tried to classify those searching for the truth based on their level of awareness:
The 1st herd: these are the masses of indoctrinated and brainwashed who rely on mainstream sources and consider them gospel. They are deep in the matrix.
The 2nd herd: lesser in number than the 1st herd, although their ranks are swelling, the 2nd herd has awakened to the fact that mainstream news is under establishment control and cannot be trusted. Sadly, they still don’t realize that the alternative media is also under establishment control and thus they are vulnerable to disinformation and omission …..tactics I have described above.
The 3rd herd: although few in numbers, comparatively speaking, the 3rd herd understands that 95% of all media is under the sway of the establishment, to one degree or another. They are aware that much of the alternative media is a trap, waiting for unsuspecting members of the 1st herd who are waking up to the fact Mainstream Media is totally unreliable and are searching for other sources of news.
I hope this clarifies the recent ‘fake news’ list and puts it into a context you can understand. The level of deception we are experiencing is unprecedented…perhaps we should rename the age we are living in as the ‘disinformation age’ instead of the ‘information age’. There would be one tiny bit less disinformation if we did.
Cancer to be No.1 Killer in U.S. by 2030
by Hatrick Penry
To those of us familiar with the Fukushima Plume-Gate cover-up the recent news that cancer is soon to be the number one killer in the U.S. comes as no surprise. Indeed, when our government and media hide the reality of the ongoing plumes and fallout from Fukushima and when no warnings are given to the public (rainwater, green leafy vegetables, milk, rainwater) the only logical conclusion is that the death toll will be very high. By one projection U.S. fatalities related to Fukushima will be around 1.3 MILLION Americans by the year 2030. This number rings true with the claim that deaths by cancer will become the number one killer in the U.S. by the year 2030, as found in a November, 2016 report from CNN that cites a study by the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
(Below: from the Bobby1 Fatality Index Study, post-Fukushima)
Also, when the EPA raised permissible levels of radiation in our drinking water it only served to further hide from the public the awful truth: Fukushima is 100 fold what Chernobyl was and the American government, in collusion with the Operation Mockingbird media, has successfully hidden the reality of Fukushima fallout from the public at large.
Of course mainstream media cannot and will not give us the facts, instead continuing the cover-up by relying on a plethora of causes for this new projection OTHER THAN NUCLEAR FALLOUT. Cigarette smoking, poor eating habits, lack of exercise and other excuses fall short of the obvious true cause: an inordinate amount of fallout has inundated America since the Fukushima disaster unfolded in March of 2011. One common thread among articles and videos that center on cancer in the U.S. is that fallout is never mentioned as a possible cause….how can this be?
(Below: from the NRC’s FOIA documentation…officials worried about the consequences of moving navy ships out of the path of a ‘repeated plume event’ simply chose to keep running models and changing variables until one was produced in which ships did not need to be moved. As a result Navy personnel suffered myriad cancers due to exposure, cancers that could have been avoided.)
For those willing to face reality you have only to read my book titled “Something Wicked This Way Comes: The Story of Plume-Gate, The World’s Largest, Provable Cover-Up.” Inside my free document you can read Freedom of Information (FOIA) transcripts from emails, recorded phone conversations and conversations from the NRC’s ‘situation room’ that reveal an orchestrated effort to hide from Americans the awful truth of this monumental catastrophe. The NRC, the Obama administration and other agencies such as DHS and FEMA, new full-well the danger Americans faced from the repeated plumes and fallout from Fukushima and yet did their best to hide this truth from the public.
The consequences of high levels of radioactive fallout in the U.S. are not able to be hidden from Americans, thus the recent admission that Cancer will be the number one killer in the U.S. by the year 2030, if it is not already.
What you need to know are two things:
- fallout from Fukushima did reach the U.S. in record levels and
- multiple alphabet agencies and the Obama administration, acting in an orchestrated manner, conspired to hide this truth from the public
Clearly a crime has been committed and the ramifications can be seen in the cancer centers springing up all over the U.S., a result of exploding cancer rates due to radioactive fallout.
Since our government and media have no intention of telling the truth to Americans (as far away as France issued rainwater and green leafy vegetable warnings and as far away as Lithuania detected aerosolized plutonium from Fukushima) it is the duty of the public itself to get the word out on this horrific crime…if not we are doomed to repeat this type of disaster, whether from another one of Japan’s many reactors or from one of our own right here in the U.S.. Interestingly enough, evidence from the NRC’s FOIA documentation revealed that both the NRC and the Obama administration are well aware that we have MANY non-seismically qualified spent fuel pools right here in the U.S…is this not a matter of National Security?
Sadly, I must finish by reporting that not a single party that put forth a candidate for President in 2016 dared mention the facts I have elaborated above nor mentioned the evidence contained in my book. Thus there never has been and there will never be a discussion of the only obvious course of action to be taken in light of our current nuclear crisis: the systematic shut-down and decommissioning of all nuclear plants here in the U.S. AND in Japan.
Every time I hear President Obama (and Hillary Clinton for that matter) say at a press conference that they are concerned for the safety of Americans and that we need gun control I almost throw up in my mouth. Both participated in the cover-up that will kill MILLIONS OF AMERICANS: mostly by cancer, a slow torturous death to be sure.
Especially vulnerable to the ongoing Fukushima fallout are children, whose cells are dividing at a higher rate. The cover-up is known as Plume-Gate AND I PROVED OBAMA KNEW FUKUSHIMA WAS A ‘WORST CASE SCENARIO’ BUT TOLD AMERICANS NOT TO EXPECT HARMFUL LEVELS OF FALLOUT. The President and his family even flew to South America on an unscheduled trip to avoid the worst of the initial plumes and fallout.
I have over 400 pages of proof, in your government’s own words, that they knew the truth of the impact of the fallout on Navy sailors AND on the U.S. but lied to us intentionally. By 2030 conservative projections place fatalities around 1.3 MILLION AMERICANS. Most won’t face a quick death by gunshot in a nightclub but will die a death by cancer most cruel.
I find it outrageous that Obama, Hillary and the media call for gun control but refuse to address the nuclear crisis that will kill millions by way of cancer. This is a criminal act; to hide from the public information which could save the lives of our children and loved ones. Why are these bastards not put on trial and jailed for life?
If only apathetic and ignorant Americans would actually research for themselves what is really going on instead of relying on the Operation Mockingbird mainstream AND Operation Mockingbird alternative media for the facts. How can we make informed decisions without the facts? Its simple: we cannot.
And since NO DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE will say the ‘F’ word or the ‘N’ word (Fukushima or Nuclear) I only foresee a continuance of the sorrows of empire. -HP
Where is the Warrior?
By Hatrick ‘Hattie’ Penry
October 22nd, 2015
Don’t ever let them convince you that it’s over, that there is nothing you can do, that it’s too late. As long as you are alive and breathing you can fight. And if you can fight you must fight because it is your duty as a human. You owe it to planet Earth if to nothing else.
Why are we destroying our planet? If technology that kills and destroys can be created then so can technology that heals and repairs. The missing resource is human will. If enough people wanted a healthy, enlightened population of humans on Earth then it, in time, would be so. It is logical that a healthy planet would follow.
“I do not love the bright sword for it’s sharpness, nor the arrow for it’s swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
There are many who do not realize an undeclared war is underway. How can you join a battle if you do not know of its existence? And many of those who correctly perceive a battle to be underway have incorrectly identified the enemy. We are experiencing unprecedented levels of deception in the so-called information age. It is entirely upon you to find the truth. To find the enemy. To join the battle.
In the end it is better to fight on the side of good and lose than fight on the side of evil and win. Damnation is the spoils of war for evil men. Your reward for fighting on the side of good is that you are a good person, win or lose. It is the greatest treasure of all: to be a benevolent soul.
There is always hope. So let the battle rage on.
