The Twilight Zone
Imagine if you will, a great country filled with honest, hard working people, working together to build businesses and raise their families. Slowly, a plague infects the land. The pandemic seems to affect the minds of fifty percent of the population. Their minds become warped, and incapable of reason and common sense. They turn from the things that used to produce greatness in their country and become a mass of whining, sniveling idiots believing in anything that promises to fill their empty lives with a false sense of euphoria. The plague becomes a permanent mental handicap in the country from which it produces it's own leadership which then promotes and sells the sickness to the rest of the people. Enough of the citizens are affected for a short time to allow the infected leaders to take over the country. The once great land gradually becomes a cesspool of confused and corrupt ideas that continue to drag it into the abyss of history. The plague infested leaders gloat as they pridefully watch the results of their own destruction. There is no escape. For the next four years, you're in, The Twilight Zone.
