The Rein of King George . . . The Drapery Sales Assistant

H.G. (George) Wells was an amazing thinker who wrote science fiction stories that have inspired authors and thinkers ever since. In this story we first meet three of the gods of the heavens. The god of almost all power is looking at the tiny orb called Earth as it spins in its orbit. He is thinking about giving the spunky earthlings the power over almost everything, but two gods watching him are concerned that if everyone had unlimited power they would quickly destroy each other and the Earth. The god of power decides to begin by only giving power to one person . . . . Looking around he spots a timid and mousey assistant drapery salesman about to walk into a pub and with a glowing finger he bestows on George the power of the gods . . . Power to instantly create or destroy anything he wishes . . . With unlimited power, will George lead the world into a Golden Age without sickness or poverty? If there is no sickness, what will doctors and nurses do with their time? Without poverty . . . without the need for an income from a job or business, will there still be a need for jobs? Who will work? Will anyone need to work? If we don’t work, what will we do to fill our days? Will we create beauty or destroy our enemies . . . Will our enemies destroy US? Instead of giving every human the freedom from want and disease, maybe George should just rule the world and enjoy the things that he has always dreamed of . . . . If George creates for himself the things he wants, and forces the people around him to serve his needs, will they joyfully obey? There is the catch . . . . Even though George has all power over the universe of ‘things’ – he cannot reach into a man’s mind or soul . . . He can create unlimited wealth and unlimited ‘things’ . . . But he cannot control the minds and souls of everyone around him. . . . Will this lead to the destruction of the world, or a great Golden Age New Millennium . . . Or will the great mind of H.G. Wells bring it all to a different ending . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
