PRE 2052: Leading up to the Lunar/Solar Wars

History leading up to lunar/solar war

PRE 2052
COUNTRIES BEGAN TO FALL TO THE DETERIORATING SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAM CONTROLLED BY THE GLOBAL GOVERNMENT BODY, KNOWN AS U.C.E., THE UNITED COUNTRIES OF EARTH.
THE ONLY LAND THAT WAS NOT UNDER ANY JURISDICTION OF CONTROL WAS DECLARED AS THE FREE ZONE. THE FREE ZONE CONSISTED OF THE FOLLOWING TERRITORIES OF LAND, NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA THE FORMER STATES, WITHIN THE OLD U.S., OF ALASKA, COLORADO, WYOMING, MONTANA, IDAHO, UTAH, WASHINGTON, OREGON, THE SMALL ISLAND OF RED WOODS, NEVADA, NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA.
THE U.C.E. HAD ONE CURRENCY CALLED THE ENKA, AND PROCLAIMED THAT THE LAW OF THE LAND WAS TO STRICTLY FOLLOW, UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH, THAT ALL PERSONS WERE TO WORK FOR THE COMMON GOOD OF THE U.C.E.; ALL WORKING PERSONS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO THEIR FELLOW EARTHLING IN THE U.C.E BOUNDARY TO HELP PROVIDE ALL NEEDS AND WANTS TO ALL CITIZENS.
THIS PRIME LAW WORKED WONDERS AT FIRST BY ALLOWING NON-WORKING PERSONS THE ABILITY TO HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONETARY POSSESSIONS, THE SAME HEALTHCARE AND EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS, AS THE WORKING CLASS HAD.
HOWEVER, THE HIGH COST OF POSSESSIONS, EDUCATION, HEALTHCARE, FOOD CONSUMPTION, AND OTHER SOCIAL EXPENSE BURNED A GIGANTIC CRATER IN THE U.C.E.’S GOVERNMENT PIGGY BANK. AS A RESULT THE SUPPLY RAN OUT. THIS LEAD TO THE UPRISING OF THE WORKING CLASS CITIZENS, WHICH NOT LONG LATER RESULTED IN A CIVIL WAR.
A CIVIL WAR ENSUED BETWEEN THOSE OF THE TAXED CLASS AND THOSE OF THE UNTAXED. HAVING LASTED ONLY 4 MONTHS, DUE TO THE REALIZATION FROM THE TAXED CITIZENS THAT THEY WERE COMPLETELY OUTNUMBERED. HOWEVER, A TREATY WAS AGREED UPON; “THE TREATY OF ENKA”, GAVE THE WORKING CLASS PERSONS THE CHOICE TO LEAVE THE U.C.E. INDEFINITELY, AND IF EVER ON U.C.E. TERRITORY AGAIN THEY WILL BE PUBLICLY EXECUTED, OR TO STAY AND NEVER UPRISE AGAINST THE MASSES AND GOVERNMENT AGAIN.
DURING THIS TIME THE WORKING CLASS ONLY CONSISTED OF 16% OF THE U.C.E.’S POPULATION. THEREFOR THE INEVITABILITY OF COLLAPSE WAS IMMINENT FOR THE U.C.E. WITHOUT A MEANS OF MAKING MONEY, AND NO ONE LEFT IN THOSE LANDS WANTED TO WORK, ESPECIALLY FOR FREE. AFTER THE REMAINDER OF THE WORKING CLASS LEFT THE U.C.E. TO LIVE OUT LIFE IN THE FREE ZONE, THE U.C.E. BEGAN TO HAVE MUCH TURMOIL IN ITS BORDERS. IT STARTED WITH RIOTING BY THE PEOPLE, WHICH AFTER 2 YEARS LEAD TO THE U.C.E.’S 2ND CIVIL WAR. THE U.C.E. POLICE KEPT RECRUITING SO TO PROTECT WHAT WAS LEFT OF THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS LAND, BUT THIS WAS NOT EVEN A PAYING JOB, VERY FEW WANTED TO JUMP ON THE POLICE’S BANDWAGON. OVER A YEAR HAD GONE BY SINCE THE TREATY OF ENKA, AND THE POLICE HAD GROWN TIRED OF PROTECTING THE SYSTEM. THE POLICE GLOBALLY ORGANIZED AND CARRIED OUT THEIR PLANS TO LESSEN THE POPULATION. THEY TURNED ON THE CITIZENS AND GOVERNMENT COMPLETELY; they targeted citizens on the streets, picking them off. Bullets rained everywhere. They bombed buildings and homes. All over the globe the skies lit up with electric blue lights from the explosives used. FAMILIES TRIED DESPERATELY TO STAY ALIVE ANY WAY THE COULD THINK OF.
THE FREE ZONE HAD ALREADY PREPARED SOME YEARS EARLIER FOR SUCH A POSSIBILITY ON ITS BORDERS. SO THEIR AEROSPACE PROGRAM MERGED ALL OF ITS EFFORTS INTO RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MARS COLONIES, AS THEY KNEW THAT SOON THERE WOULD BE NO PLACE SAFE ON THE EARTH PLANET.
MANY SPIRITUAL PREDICTIONS CAME OUT FROM ALL TYPES OF BELIEFS ACROSS THE GLOBE THAT A GREAT EVIL WOULD COME AND ONLY THOSE THAT WERE MARKED BY GOD WOULD BE PROTECTED AND GRANTED ACCESS TO THE ETERNITY OF LOVE.
