For many centuries kings told their subjects that there were three important things: God, homeland and family. But at the beginning of the year 2000 a change began and so little by little God was replaced by money, homeland by vacations and family by pets. Some Kings of the East tried to maintain the old principles but by then it was too late. The Kings of the West hired writers and scriptwriters to invent new stories each time, confuse their subjects and continue to rule. But something threatened to undermine this mechanism: stupidity. They then began to experiment to make the stupid smart. And they succeeded, although the process was reversible: the stupid forgot to be smart and became stupid again.
