[OC] – Fact or Fiction?

You think it sounds like the plot to a really bad movie.

A group of people terrorizing others, threatening their lives and well being, making them scared. You expect a hero to swoop in at any moment- only the Heroes are scared too, or have been run out of town already….Or worse, tricked or coerced into working with the bad guys.

You think it sounds like the plot to a really bad movie.

But it isn’t. It’s reality. Online and in the Governments- fearmongers and warmongers…the same folks working towards the same goal without any real leaders guiding them…

Just their own fears, irrational, and made up facts, implausible.

But what are you supposed to do? Speaking up rarely seems to work. You’ve seen so many “Anti-Bullying” campaigns on TV over the years and the problem just seems to never go away. We tell our kids to “Speak Up!” and what happens when someone does? The troublemakers somehow get away scott-free and the ones who speak up somehow get punished for doing it?

What kind of message does that send to the world, you wonder?

What kind of message does it send when cops are allowed to freely kill people and frame them up for a crime that never existed?

What kind of message does it send when you try and try to get the world to become a better place, and those trolling folks who promote fear and war end up taking us backwards?

You think it sounds like the plot to a really bad movie.

But it isn’t.

Where are the heroes? Where is the eleventh hour save that pulls everything back from the brink of destruction?

There aren’t any, because this isn’t a movie.

Or rather….

If it is? It’s the kind of movie people go to for a scare. It’s a niche thing. Folks go to a movie and watch the world die. Or they write a story with the Zombies rule the planet.

If you buy into that whole “Parallel Universe” theory, then for every universe where a story is reality, in a neighboring world, it’s fiction.

Fiction and Fact.

Fact or Fiction.

Sometimes you think whoever is writing this script should just give up and start a new draft, because this really, really sounds like the plot to a bad movie.
