Thank you!

My aunt runs a small business making custom decals. I told her about my special faction's symbolism and brought up the idea of hiring her to make a set of stickers for them. She ended up doing Hakenkreuzes in black, blue, and white, and the S&H in red, gold, and white again.

HERE IS THE REAL THING ON BRIKWARS!

Image

Nearly a year has passed since the battle at Septic Springs.

The Federalist Star Union has been getting the better of the Berliniscow Naturalist Party. Slowly but surely, with their swarms of professional cradle-to-grave infantry, the legendary Tithe Infantry of Options Military, at the front line, the FSU has been pushing back the frontier of BNP territory.

Their situation becoming more desperate, the BNP has stepped up its efforts to foster fifth columns among FSU society. Old-school pamphlets, subversive art, and disguised emails espousing BNP ideology are distributed behind FSU lines by foolhardy souls seduced by empty yet tantalizing promises of bread, peace, and equality.

In response, the FSU's Elutherian Council, the 4th estate of their government with the sole and exclusive power to restrict expression, has created a division of elite teams entrusted with hunting, documenting, exposing, and finally either eliminating or reforming subversive citizens. These teams are drawn from Tithe Rangers, specialists originally trained to act as counter-insurgents. Seven-man squads of these commandos, called Cancellor Minors, cluster around a single Cancellor Major, often simply called an Agent, who plans out their next moves and wields final judgement over accused citizens.

Today an idealistic, brash youth has run himself afoul of a Cancellor cell, and is about to learn of the price of seduction by nice-sounding ideas.

Image

The lead Cancellor Minor, marked by the blue trident atop his helmet, approaches the accused citizen.

Image

"Citizen," begins the Cancellor Minor as he raises his visor to see the accused face-to-face, "you stand accused of distributing Groß  Collectivist propaganda materials amongst your fellow citizens. The evidence compiled by my team and I is considerable. It carries the death penalty. Have you anything to say in your own defense before the Cancellor Major arrives? You are being recorded."

Image

With a loud 'THPUH!" the youth sends a loogie flying into the lead Cancellor Minor's face. The other CM's make clicking sounds as they take their guns off safety and lean into their weapons.

"No!" yells their team leader, "Plex will deal with him..."

Image

With jackboots thumping across the grass as though it were concrete flooring, an ominous, masked figure in a broad-brimmed hat approaches the Cancellor Minors and their prisoner.

"Sir!" declares the squad leader as he turns to face him, "we've tagged and bound the sympathizer. The accused was caught distributing hard as well as digital copies of documents espousing the supposed virtues of collectivist society in general and BNP civilization specifically. I'm transmitting the evidence to your suit now."

The figure pauses for a moment and appears to be staring into space. After a few brief time he simply says, "Hm, damning."

Image

"Greetings," says the figure as he comes to a stop before the accused, "I am Agent Plex, servant of the Elutherian Council of the Federalist Star Union."

"Pound sand," retorts the man on his knees.

"I pounded a lot of sand, long ago as a young man wearing Tithe Armor while deployed to the desert. Now I'm just a fancy cop."

Image

"A cop?" begins the accused with feigned confusion, "my dad was a cop. I know 'em good. They're all wads! But at least they're big tough jerks. You? You just look like some costumed goon. I bet underneath that suit you're just a big wuss who couldn't fist fight me to a draw!"

Rolling his eyes under his helmet, Plex grasps that his patience might be tested. He had hoped for an interesting conversation but it looked like he would simply be executing this one before beginning a hunt for another piece of the fifth column.

"Tell me, kid, why'd you do as you did?"

"'Cause the party promises what this dump of a union don't; the end of poverty and war, and the total justice of equality!"

Image

"Huh," starts Plex as he walks around to the side of the accused, "interesting; the end to problems which have plagued mankind since his inception, coupled with the supposed end to all iniquities (AKA justice in the sense I know you use it) through the imposition of 'equality.'"

"Interesting?" responds the accused, now in true confusion.

"Indeed. Interesting...only that someone could be snookered by such promises once again!"

"What're you talkin' about? I thought you were just gonna say 'Yuh guilty,' then blow me away. What is this?"

"Does the idea that all that you have set yourself in support of has been tried before cause you distress? What if I told you further that it uniformly led to catastrophe?"

"I'd call you a liar! They're lies! When the BNP's giant revolution wins, everything in the world, the universe, will be set right! You goons will be all gone but everyone left will see! They'll see!"

Image

"Indeed..." crows Plex in reply to the youth's rantings. "Let us change topics."

"What?" stammers the boy as he is torn out of his maniacal fantasy.

"Yes, yes! Let me tell you about...my helmet."

A sinister grin spreads across Plex's face beneath the mask as he reaches up to twist a knob on the side of his helm. "You see, it's a one-of-a-kind piece. It has the power to flood the minds of nearby persons with vivid memories of the deeds of collectivists past."

"Wutta buncha horsecrap! Just shoot me already!" cries the boy. Yet Plex senses the beginnings of the disintegration of the young man's bravado in his voice. Things were going now as he liked.

"Oh yes, when I power this baby up it'll be like you're really starving as you watch while your family and everyone you knew is machine-gunned into the dirt. All with a background of propaganda espousing the 'hope' of those things you talked of; bread, peace, and equality. Myself and my men; we've seen it all before. But you? Well..."

Image

"Wha?" says the accused with a start, "Huh...I...Huaaaah!!"

The screams of the accused deafen the air as his simple mind is flooded with new memories so vivid it's as though he's experiencing them all at once.

"Why so upset, friend?" starts Plex, his demonic grin concealed by his mask. "It's the fulfillment of the BNP's goals, as achieved by its predecessors in the past. This IS what you wanted, is it not?"

"Ngh...NGGH!...No, not like this! It's...It's the worst thing I've ever seen! Seas of people reduced to skeletons on a whim!"

"S'matter; you don't like watching people being essentially melted down like wax before a candle's flame? That's what you gotta do to people to make them equal. They're different in nature, all different shapes and sizes, and some add to themselves with their deeds while others opt to sit idle. They can't all be truly equal with one another unless they're all reduced to undifferentiated sludge, then reassembled to be identical to each other. All to the delight of some scheming third party, and all unrequited by the people it's done to. That third party would be you if you could have your way.

Before your eyes is the true form of egalitarian collectivism, boy. Look upon it and vomit!"

Image

"Captain?" demands Plex as he turns and walks away from the accused.

"Sir?" asks the lead CM.

"Execute this...thing. That sad, contemptible thing."

"In what fashion, sir?"

"Why of course the usual fashion for turncoats who join with the collectivists."

Image

"Right lads," shouts the commander as he motions his left hand to his squad, "pull him into quarters!"

Image

With a sharp 'Thump!' the CM's boot slams the accused's back, sending him face first into the dock where he is set upon by three more of them.

Image

The soldiers begin to pull the punk apart by his limbs. His screams don't seem to grow any louder at the pain, though. Perhaps he was already at maximum volume.

Image

Stepping away from the impending gory carnage, Plex powers down his helmet's special feature.

Image

With the helmet's aura of psychological terror deactivated, Plex notices the screams of accused cease. In an instant they are replaced by soft weeping.

Image

Is that the weeping of a man filled with regret?

"Aw sheeewwwwt..." thought Plex to himself glumly. "I was going to enjoy killing him. Gotta offer him that road to redemption now, though."

Image

With a short, masculine scream Plex bellows "Stop!"

Image

With all the care of men who no longer view their target as even human, the Cancellor Minors drop the accused to the ground with a baleful 'whud.'

Image

Himself and his men silent, Plex slowly strides towards the shattered husk of a young man that the accused has become.

Image

"Rise, you," utters Plex as he reaches the accused for the second time.

Image

Still sobbing, the boy drags himself back up to his knees and looks upon Plex. All the cocksure attitude from earlier has been cleared from his person as though it were never there to begin with. Tears roll down his face, which is dominated by a quivering frown.

Plex beholds the loathsome beast for a moment before saying, calmly and quietly, "As I had sensed guilt in you before as a shark senses blood in the water, I now sense the blossoming of remorse in your soul. I find its fragrance so enchanting that I have decided to delay your execution for 72 hours. At the end of that time I will interview you about your experience today, all of it, and what you have decided about the world. If I like what I hear, you will be restored as though you had run the straight and narrow from the beginning. And if I do not, I will shred your body with my sword..."

Image

The case settled for now, Plex makes a final departure from the accused. For certain, he will soon commence a search for another such a wayward and destructive individual, whether to set them aright or destroy them.

For his part, the boy falls down again into uncontrollable sobbing.
