ONCE UPON A TIME
Once upon a time, a powerful nation sold war and weapons to the world. The war and weapons went out and created peace, security, affluence, death, disease, and famine. And the powerful nation got fat. Soon the powerful nation was preached against by divers prophets, who called her to repent in sackcloth and ashes and beg forgiveness for her rapacity. Instead, she romanticized her exploits in films about War Machines and Iron Men and sold those to the world, too.
