Microstory 604: Derail Hydra

The Hydra Support Network was a strange organization, based out of Lakre, of all places. It takes donations from hard-working individuals, just so the money can be spent on charity. That’s right, their sole purpose was to redistribute wealth so that people who sit on their asses and do nothing can feel the benefits that come from having a job. Of course, most of us know that this is ridiculous, because they are all choosing to be poor. No one is born without the opportunity to rise up and make their lives better. That’s what’s so amazing about this galaxy we’ve built. If they don’t want to be poor, they why don’t they just do something about it, and stop complaining? Unfortunately, “charity” is a business. If you can make money at doing something, no one has the right to take that away from you. And if they do, then you have the right to take from them. The donors have a responsibility to spend their money wisely. No one is going to go out of their way to teach them any better, for that would be a perfect example of irony. Humans are meant to be self-sufficient and self-reliant, and to have the ability to make their own choices. That’s how the world works, so it wasn’t like Hydra Support could ever be shut down. Except that they were. A brave group of men and women, after seeing Sotiren’s body with their own eyes, took it upon themselves to dismantle all of Hydra once and for all. Why they chose that name for their organization is something no sane Lightseer could ever understand. They were just asking for trouble when they chose to identify themselves with the evil monster from a story in the Book of Light, one prophesied to be destroyed as part of the taikon. Heathens is what they were. With the destruction of Hydra Support, including all eight of its satellite locations, the taikon were free to continue.
