If I had to describe an overpowered villain...

I had a thought today; this is not that thought.

What kind of superpower would I give to someone against the good of mankind, us? Truth and the ability to imply truth, this villain would have impressive physical traits to boast us, he'd be frailer than an average man, but terrifyingly intelligent; with an innate talent for predicting his foes behavior with alarming precision. 

Nothing that an average 'hero' of the people couldn't handle...so long as they could face him down directly; so long as the 'heroes' of the people and the people themselves, were duly diligent and wary of this man's very existence... 

And if it wasn't so? Maybe this...man slips from view of the populace? First out of sight, lest anyone recognize his face and then over time, out of mind, lest anyone know the original truths and what power there is in it. This is his enemy, but he knows he can't distinguish his enemy by taking out one measly conduct of the greatest energy in creation...it takes more than that...much more, much...in faster intervals... If the...man can take all the conduits, make them act as he, MAN would have us act; man that taken the power to speak his truth as TRUTH. It would be strong then, when no one remembered the original TRUTH and so was a pristine opportunity to insert IT"S truth and then it's simply a transition from HIS STORY to... THIS(currently being lived out)STORY.

For the spotlights from the star brights that helped bring tangible change to a world that was truly un-inconclusive, the ones who gave whole lives filled with hopes; hopes in the people, that they may see past their insignificantly little differences and band together, maybe to face an even greater enemy behind the currently terrible puppet show of a political theater show that grows increasingly unstable as it goes, along with the corruption that props it up. They could see IT then, as a collected human race, truly united against a force that would have us, the people destroyed by our own planet as the devices that THEY create to keep us entertained...or distracted, rather. 

  IT would EMPOWER men and woman to be more glamorous than life around around them itself and they would be ENAMORED, that few would wonder as the battles of truly brilliant and courageous light; the struggling and what the TRUTHS that they wanted their fellow humans to SEE, before things could get much worse... IT knew that a TRUTH was a powerful thing and so IT would IMPLY power on them, so that the Superstars could speak their own truths and further EMPOWER IT's own truth; belief in this truth would increase exponentially this way and belief in IT's truth was vital to the self-destruction of their own race. Frustragingly however, IT could not destroy THE TRUTH and so IT had to make the people forget, bury THE TRUTH under the complications of a social life that quickly fragments before they as a race have any time to recover from the previous culture shock. Shock...and...Awe. Superstars and and their home in Hollywood, where the cameras always roll and the imagination machine is never turned off, imagine what an institute like this to could do to an unsuspecting race. 

  IT giggled but the noise that escaped IT's mouth would sound like a hiss. The truth that the fools would unleash on their own kind, for some nonsensical belief that IT would have a special place in IT's 'heart' for THEM, they'd perish worse than the rest, agonizing in the reality that everything that they had done in their lives and the impact of their conscious decisions to turn blind eyes to false truths and neverending, redundant, but brighter screens, with their accessories of course. Using their very own home to produce their entertainment as IT slowly destroyed them from the ground they walked on, to their soul that they reside on, where our very consciousness originates from; IT would have that if that was the last thing IT did.

Perhaps all this could even be accomplished while instituting a system in which the human race had to provide labor, labor that would result in the human race using up eight to twelve hours of most of the days in their lives. They wouldn't have any time to relax or look away from their lovely screens for long enough to think that there may be something more sinister that needs to be confronted, something beyond the idiotic veil of politics and identity. If they continue to only see each other in these lenses, IT plans to consume them whole and the only time that the humans would have ever seen IT was when it's open jaws snapped shut on the human race as we know it and they would have no TRUTH to accompany them into the BLACK, but IT is there and IT had grown very hungry over the lifetime of a plane(t).

  To think, these humans would even entrust the tender minds of their youths to teachers that, as well intentioned as they may be, have material that they are mandated to teach, like Critical Race Theory; this theory would be like a divisive religion or at least it would be used that way. The children would become so confused coming out of schools because of corrosive ideas like these being worked into their daily lives at school, that encompasses about 14 years of their lives in which every single idea that they are exposed to makes to, that the children would need to get themselves in order before they could even consider trying to put forth a confident foot in their lives. Inhibit the children's ability to THINK and distract the parents while THEY indoctrinated them, sowing plants of character degrading ideas that are detrimental to their innate strengths as humans. If IT's truth can corrupt even the children...then all of the conduits lose their LIGHT and the adults will never be able to recover their own LIGHT; that pesky LIGHT that IT hates so much! 

IT would smile then, smug as IT looked out upon a harmonious people and settled upon IT's truth, he'd come to form quite a plan in his head by this time. IT could insert it's truth, but also IMPLY truth; IT thinks we're a stupid people and so IT would only use one truth, one truth and topple the whole of human race and our natural balance with our planet.

  So from the darkness that IT that was the MAN made home, IT whispered it's terrible truth, that was to be passed down and IMPLIED by ones who know IT's truth.

 "Do whatever you want to and anyone who tells you otherwise...is an enemy..."
