I have been declared Emperor of the World. Let us not waste time explaining why or how; let’s all simply accept the fact that we are better off, as a result; hence, my next decree:

Emperor’s Decree No. 20: We need less chatter and more meditation regarding the horror of last week. The cacophony must end. Consequently, everyone will cease communicating their ideas and start communing with their inner thoughts. After a month’s time, we can all try to “get answers.” After a week’s time, we can start drafting plans and prevention schemes. For now, grieve. Simply grieve.

The Punishment: Violators will find themselves adrift and juggled about in a rushing current without end. The Emperor will not administer this as a punishment. It simply will be the case.

Now, go forth and obey.

The Emperor will grace the world with a new decree each Tuesday morning.
