We’ve survived all of this at other times when the world has descended into these pitfalls. We learned from them those times; we recovered, and we grew from it. There are new generations who have never had a beast snarling in their face, or trampling them underfoot. They will rise, this new beast will be slain, and the people will feast on its carcass. No curse necessary – it is the way of the world. Only those who have had freedom threatened and removed will fight to the death for it. This new beast just harvests what has been left unguarded.
