A one-on-one virtual performance in the form of an intake-talk. Through a series of questions, the spectator is being checked as a potential member of the organization that believes in the goodness of human kind.

Today, a secret cell of our movement has executed a successful worldwide operation.
We hold the victory in our hands and our overwhelming march is on the rise. We will triumph and fight the infidels.
Our brothers and sisters are among you. Inconspicuous. Invisible.
We are many.
We are global
We are TM*

*If you’re wondering what this acronym stands for, and how you can become a member, we’re happy to invite you to an explorative talk, under no obligation. First consult = free.

We have fallen upon evil times and the world has become very old and wicked. Politics are very corrupt. Children are no longer respectful to their parents.
- King Naram Sin of Chaldea - 3800 BC
