After the demise of America, even the rebels stopped protesting and turned themselves in for ghipping. Because above all else, human and humankindov wanted to live. But the GUNS weren’t taking any chances now, they sent the robots into every country to perform the implantations. Soon there were reports of the robots killing submitters. Those who showed up to the clinics. Those who opened their doors. It was a great culling of the Earth’s billions. We watch a lot of old news reports in Emotive from that time, especially so in the month of November, when we also celebrate V-Day. The video that always stands out for me is of a man and a woman, called husband and wife, who lived in Toronto. Most of us left are wondering why we were the ones saved, she said. It makes me sick to my stomach, her husband said. Maybe it stands out because I cannot imagine having a stomach. It sounds like a terrible thing to have and the pictures I have seen of them are not nice, but perhaps it is the reason we also got rid of them because this sentiment grew. The people left felt disgusted and soon they were calling for the overthrowing of the Global United Nations, most notably James Alistair Smith, a handsome man who helped pioneer consumer space flight. The GUNS relented and allowed an election and the ballot held 12 global parties to vote for. James A. Smith called his party the Arctalian Alliance and though it would come out a week before voting day that he had been a former high-up financer of the GUNs, he would still be elected and we still govern ourselves under his banner until this day. We have no need for elections.
His campaign slogan was “Ask me Anything.”
