I would control all forms of education, mass media and entertainment as well as popular trends.
Making the populace complacent by instilling a feeling of hopelessness and enmeshing them in a double blind paradoxical mythology with no forseeable
positive outcome makes them all the more ready to consume my factory supplied goods and services to "escape" the horrible "reality" of their
Never offer anything of spiritual nourishment, never feed the spirit outside of little "feel good" flicks that deal with personal dramas and hype up
Don't forget to hold vast amounts of stock in pharmacuticals to help compensate for the psychosomatic deterioration of the human psyche en masse.
This is the inevitable outcome of persons with no meaning or inherent value to their existence.
Push an agenda with a spiritual "savior" who will "do all the heavy soul work" for the masses so they can focus on their work and consumption of

deals that will ensure I bank ten fold on my investments.
Be considered bright, witty, artistic and "in tune" with the public and make my way to a more hospitable climate of my peers, surrounded by fanfare
and bodyguards before faking my death to retire in some remote corner of the globe and relishing the the life I have made for myself.
Let the next wave of up and comers have their way with the world, because, hey - fair is fair.
