Remarks of counselor pierro. Bon session of the noble council may twenty eighth year of our lord. two thousand seventeen by thomas carey. Wait welcome everyone mr speaker. Mister secretary nights senators honored warfighters fellow citizens. Before i begin with my opening remarks i would like to lead everybody and the pledge of allegiance. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of vespucci and to the empire for which it stands and to the cannon that we uphold and to the god that we serve one nation one people one king and one purpose of security and justice for all. Thank you thank you. I know that this is a difficult time for all of us three days ago. Dr herman phillips esteemed advisor to. The king was convicted by the censorship. Board of high treason. I know this is hard to accept. Dr phillips was a role model for many of us including myself but ultimately we have to accept the fact that the man we knew didn't exist to treasonous and blasphemous pamphlets discovered in. His attic must speak for themselves in them he imagines what he called an alternate history a bizarre world where the new world was discovered by europe in fourteen ninety two. He lays out the horrifying implications as just monarchy is overtaken worldwide by mob rule and primitive democracy. Our own compassionate level ism is replaced by brutal. Capitalism and countries are unified worldwide by globe spanning treaties in other words a world. Not unlike what the world would have been like had. We lost the cold war to the ottoman republic. Struggled to understand what was going through his mind at the time. He must be making a political point. Somehow but i don't know what it is. Perhaps he's sympathize with the who continue to prevent us from deposing mob rule nations and bringing them to monarchy. Perhaps he has forgotten that. Despite the best efforts of our agency for human values there are still places in the world where divorce is legal. Perhaps he has forgotten that we won the gold war that our ideas are ascendant that they have been proven true in the process. Democracy as barbarian ideology suitable only for the ancients. Perhaps he has forgotten the heritage of western civilization a proud monolith which has always advocated our values and could never be any other way. But you know. I understand dr phillips and the deplorables who still support him. I can see why they believe what they do. Because it's tempting so tempting to believe in his wild fantasies. Oh he says we can abolish serfdom. But let me ask you a question. Then who will make your house and car. Perhaps he has forgotten that every economist agrees that served as necessary for the modern economy. He says that we can all work together when he promises an international tax climate change agreement a web of computers connecting everyone and international council to settle disputes. It all sounds good but humans. Don't work that way. No matter how much the ideologues wanted to be true but my fellow citizens. I think that this should be a moment. Not of doubt but of reaffirmation. Dr phillips would have you believe that history is a random drift of free for all a chaos where the actions of individuals can change everything where evil could win and everyone would find it normal. But he's wrong. We stand at the end of centuries of progress thousands of great thinkers and though they have had their misunderstandings they have always been closing in on a single great truth every philosophical theory. Everything we know about the world confirms our actions and those who disagree with us are on the wrong side of history. Dr phillips worries worries constantly. That if we don't fight for what we believe in we could lose it but we fight because we have the truth and the truth will always try. Thank you and thank god that we live in the united states of vespucci the greatest nation in the world. You know this is a commercial right and you know what that means. Time for snack raw. I want you to do some heart healthy exercise. Yes you try.
