EU and non-EU countries, 2014
There are a few thousand key people and families controlling and manipulating large parts of all our lives. These people are accumulating wealth in unbelievable quantities. This has to stop now. Targeted killing is the premeditated killing of an individual by a state organization or institution outside a judicial procedure or a battlefield. It is a visual process based on a list. Images and biographies have to be studied, research has to be carried out, intelligence has to be gathered and decisions have to be made. The 'Killlist' is specifically designed to liquidate people responsible for crimes against humanity, for the mass destruction of human life, for hunger, poverty, pain and humiliation. By selective assassination, trouble-makers are strategically taken out. A trial-and-error method optimizes the effectiveness of the list. We need to act responsibly. We need to take things into our own hands. 'Auslöschung' of a few prevents 'Auslöschung' of the many. We feel the danger in every cell of our body. It turns out, we are really good at creating kill lists. Fear works. Desk criminals are cowardly. They change their behavior if the people around them are dropping like flies. This prevents us from expanding the list infinitely until we become part of the list ourselves. So we refine the list, we don't expand. Keep in mind: This is real. This is illegal. This is risk. This is not freedom of speech or freedom of art. There is no way out. Memories shall be erased. Humans have to get rid of their 'Herkunftskomplex' and accept that it is time to act. Stop. Go!
