Please read Chapter 1 first.
“Hey, if the people have been making so much effort and their life is still hard, their discontent and grumbling are rising too much to control themselves. In this way, the stimulant of using the star of hope has started to lose its effect. What can we do?”
“The next is a sacrifice strategy. Do you know a sacrificial lamb? It’s a strategy to shift the people’s dissatisfaction to another object. A bad fellow is not us. Those who have been creating such bad conditions are other guys. Yes, the best candidate is illegal foreign workers, especially those who got darker skins are good. And those dropouts who depend on welfare. We’ll broadcast like they rob you of jobs, they don’t pay taxes, but they rather waste your taxes and make public service worse and torture you. Then the people’s dissatisfaction will all gather around those foreigners and dropouts. How is it?”
“That’s a good idea. Let’s carry out the sacrifice strategy right away.”
The proposal agreed at the conference was carried out using the mass media. The people’s dissatisfaction was directed toward illegal immigrants and welfare recipients. Politicians agitated with the media. It was to divert away from their miscarriages, make those guys as the object of bashing, stir up the people’s emotion, and campaign on pledges to meet it to connect votes for them. The regulation of illegal immigrants was more and more strengthened by the elected politicians. The budget for welfare was reduced steadily.
But the illegal immigrants themselves didn’t decrease. They rather became underground, contracting to do more dangerous work and dirtying their hands in a crime. It was same as welfare recipients. They stopped receiving welfare and some died of starvation while many others dirtied their hands in a crime against their will.
The security situation got worse. The deterioration of the security situation was a serious threat. Then the strengthening control of the crime became a suitable polity in favor with the people. The wealthy people didn’t allow their share to decrease and the budgets for police to increase. What they did instead was kangaroo courts of the criminals, increasing criminal punishments, and the increase of capital punishments.
After several years, the forth conference was held.
To be continued to Chapter 4
