If I wanted to rule the world, I would want to know everyone in it. I would want to know their names, their locations and what part of my world they own. I would not ask them their names; I would let them tell me on their own volition. I would not ask them the names of their parents, their spouses, their brothers and sisters; I would let them tell me themselves. I would give them reason to tell me everything about themselves without asking.
If I wanted to rule the world, I would sell them my ideas, I would sell them my culture; sell them my ideologies and that at very high prices which they would be more than willing to pay. I would watch them stumble over one another trying to by my ideologies. I would not teach them in schools, I would come to their homes. I would be with them first thing in the morning and last thing at night; I would go far deeper than their conscious mind and embed my own thoughts. If I wanted to rule the world, I would imprint my image on their souls.
If I wanted to rule the world, I would identify each person uniquely, collect their finger prints for years, capture their pictures from multiple angles, record their educational history, track their spending patterns, monitor their travel patterns, and track their daily movements. If I wanted to rule the world I would not force them to give me these, I would simply make it a pleasure to share everything.
If I wanted to rule the world, I would let them loose, free to roam the earth and enjoy themselves, free to express themselves in whichever way they choose as long as they do not interfere with my rule. If I wanted to rule the world, I would silence the narrow minded conservatives and make them completely resented in the public sphere. I would let everyone loose to express themselves. After all, everyone has a right to live the way they want. To be FREE!
If I wanted to rule the world, I would penetrate every possible institution on the earth. From government to churches, entertainment to education. I would have representative in every sphere of life promoting my ideas. I would have sworn followers, strong personalities with carriage and influence, sound thinkers with persuasive personalities able to sell me to the world long before I show up.
If I wanted to rule the world, I would do my utmost best to ensure everyone is far too busy to notice I was coming. Busy trying to be rich, busy trying to meet targets, busy trying to keep up with the latest fashion, busy keeping up with customers’ ever changing demands, busy planning the next event, busy busy busy. Too busy to notice when I ascend the throne. Too busy to notice the massive changes unfolding before their eyes. Far too busy.
If I wanted to rule the world, I would not let an unseen deity get in my way. Why worship what is unseen when I can be worshipped! I would demonstrate that what is unseen cannot be real. I would prove over and over that we are all one and we can all worship one. I would show that we can help ourselves rather than looking to some distant unseen deity. If I wanted to rule the world I would persuade men to come together in worship.
Someone wants to rule the world, and he knows his time is short.
