Glioblastoma Capitalism-Multiforme

Glioblastoma Capitalism-Multiforme, commonly referred to as "The Plague", "The Blight", or simply "Capitalism" is generally considered to be an economic plague that is based on private ownership of the means of production and the creation of goods or services for profit or income by individuals or corporations. Some have also used the term as a synonym for competitive markets, voluntary exchange, wage labor, capital accumulation, or personal finance.[1][2][3]

Capitalism is variously defined by sources and there is no general consensus among scholars on the definition nor which economies can historically be properly considered capitalist.[4] The designation is applied to a variety of historical cases, varying in time, geography, politics, and culture.[5] There is, however, general agreement that capitalism became dominant in the Western world following the demise of feudalism, a time when plague could run rampant across the land.[6]

The Capitalist Plague gradually spread throughout the Western world in the 19th and 20th centuries.[7][8] In our modern world, some scientists estimate that nearly 99% of the population that reside in the afflicted territories show symptoms of the disease, but these cases are still treatable.[9] The severity of the aforementioned cases, however, are dwarfed by the other 1%.

This 1%, for all intents and purposes, are dead already. They walk the earth in zombie-like stupor, feeding on the blood and sweat of of those around them. While the physical impact on the carriers is non-obvious, the mental suffering is acute and irreversable. While they may seem like mindless drones to the untrained eye, they know exactly what they are doing; they simply have lost the ability to care.[10] Direct contact with these hyper-afflicted individuals has caused a slow but deadly process that threatens to cripple entire municipalities, large cities, and even whole countries.

The United States has been the hardest hit to date; a small but affluent New York neighborhood is believed to be the epicenter of this cruel and debilitating virus. Analysts agree that the disease laid dormant there for decades, but opinions differ on how the noxious plague spread.[11] Sources close to the denizens of the site repeatedly refer to the spread of the disease as "trading", presumably with those yet to be contaminated, but other theories abound, up to and including the transferral of sickening parasites commonly referred to as "IAPs", through a hideous and ungodly process known only as "Monetization."[12]

While small safe havens for those yet to be afflicted do exist, they occupy isolated areas in larger cities and can often be difficult to pinpoint. The Center for Disease Control has issued a statement saying, "Under no conditions should you accept one of these 'IAPs' from anyone, otherwise you could be at risk of perpetuating the deadly virus."[13] There is still hope, however, embodied by small, but developing forum communities that could in fact be the antidote to the plague. Help from neighboring residents is paramount; send food, medical supplies, clothes, anything you can spare to help their cause, lest you become part of the 1%.
