The young pompous ladies and gentlemen from around the world were summoned to a very private meeting at an exclusive secretive location only disclosed to a few.
Among them were the worlds smartest scientists, bankers, economists.
Most of them were smart and smart arse. Hence my first sentence, Pompous individuals.
Not one of them had reached fifty years of age.
The agenda was to discuss the elderly. Heading the meeting would be Professor Clair Colman.
“Let’s get this party started“ she screeched through the microphone.
“If anyone here disagrees with our agenda you are free to leave at any stage but you are NEVER to discuss with anyone what we are about to discuss in this room.”
Everyone already knew it was to discuss the ageing population.
A few eyebrows raised, mumbling is heard, someone is heard saying, “What in heavens name could be so important.” Another saying, “Get rid of the oldies I say.”
“Exactly” yells Professor Colman. “Get rid of them”
Then came her presentation. Everyone went quiet and she began.
“We irradiate the elderly, they are good for what? They are a burden, good for absolutely nothing. We have a little box under-”
She never got time to finish that sentence as someone in her audience asked if she had actually thought this through and what the repercussions would be. Then they left the room after signing a non-disclosure at the door on the way out.
“So where was I“ she exclaimed, after shaking her head in a disapproving manner.
“Germ warfare is a start. So we have produced the Grots virus. YES a virus that will eradicate millions, it will more than likely burn itself out within a two month period, along with the unwanted. Our hope for the Grots virus is that half of the elderly will be irradiated.”
At this stage, I want to leave but I also want to know how she plans on doing this.
So I stay and hear her out.
Totally unethical, outrageous suggestion, was my thoughts. What was this woman and the people backing her thinking?
After her presentation, Professor Colman stands, looks around the room, and asks if anyone can guess what Grots stands for.
The room was quiet, not one person in the room added a suggestion as to what it stood for.
”Come on, someone blurted it out before, Get rid of the seniors, yes it stands for Get rid of the seniors” and she laughs a little.
I was mortified and wanted desperately to leave. Then came a bombshell.
”Under each of your seats there is a vial of a deadly liquid.
Each of you are expected to empty the contents in a public space.
We have enough of you in the room to cover the globe.
It is deadly to anyone old or vulnerable.”
At this stage everyone looked under their seats.
Fast forward three months. Under half of the vials were distributed, but had the same global effects. People start dying by the thousands, Industries collapse, tourism becomes non existent, retirement villages close, Doctors don't have jobs, pharmaceutical companies collapse.
There is a domino effect on the entire world.
Professor Colman has to take responsibility for the entire collapse of just about every industry in the world.
From her prison cell she reads a half-hearted apology. People are calling her a modern-day Hitler.
This is the beginning of the end. No one is immune, it Is just a matter of time before it takes all of us.
