29: Emeriti and 'The Prince'

Dr. Webb's Afternoon Garden Walk along Lake Zurich 

"During the last week, Dr. Sara Webb was refreshed by her regular afternoon walks along the beautiful pedestrian path that lined Lake Zurich.  She had spent every day studying the Official Emeriti Records at the Emeriti International Headquarters Building (Posing as the Swiss National Museum for security purposes).  The meticulous records laid out a long-term strategy to influence political, social and economic processes for the sole purpose of advancing the Emeriti goals of Pension Enlargement (PE) and Disenlightenment (D).

From the 15th Century on, the documents often mentioned a Greek phrase, πράσινος δρόμος,” (transliterated as “prasinos dromos”), which translates into “Green way,” or perhaps “road of green.”  Sara knew that this coded phrase most likely referred to a financial strategy rather than a public path or multi-modal transportation network that combined ecological, recreational, historical and economic interests; This phrase clearly inferred a road of money that flowed into the Emeriti Central Pension Fund during the last 500 years.  Could it be that the Emeriti developed a dendritic cultural model to channel micro funds from many branches into a larger income stream so as not to attract attention?

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)
Machiavelli and the Emeriti
The records described an intimate intellectual relationship with Niccolo Machiavelli, after he was released from prison in 1513.  Shortly after,  Machiavelli began writing both comedic plays as well as his signature work, "The Prince."  He was impressed by the dogged Emeriti pursuit of Pension funds.  The Prince, outlined social and cultural actions that a monarch might use to achieve larger social and cultural goals, by employing both "public" and "private" morality.  Some have suggested that The Prince was actually a satire exposing the artifice of private dominion over public affairs using smokescreens of patriotic and religious gestures, while others have taken the work quite literally to mean, "the ends justify the means."  The Emeriti studied the social science implication and devised a scheme which later would be called, "Trickle Up Economics," influenced by observing pigeons living off of the scattered crumbs of society..........."
