Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there existed a wonderfull, magickal kingdom.
In this kingdom, the sun always shined, the people lived a life of laughter and music and art. There was no hurt and no sorrow, no one went without, and love was shared by all.
Few were the problems of this kingdom, and those problems that did arise could be dealt with with a smile, or the worst of the problems, a hug.
Outside of the kingdom, life was not the same. One day, the king and queen, the kingdoms church leaders and all their advisers decided to spread their joy to those outside the kingdom.
And so, one bright friday morning, all the people of the kingdom packed up what they felt they would need, practiced their hugging skills upon each other, and turned up the intensity of their smiles to the fullest, and left the kingdom for the real world.
Into the real world the people of the kingdom ventured, and there they met the people who inhabited this real world. Sunshine beaming from the smiles, knowing that love and lightness could make everything right, the people of the kingdom stepped forward to hug close the people of the real world.
And the people of the real world laughed in their faces, drew their swords, and waded into the people of the kingdom.
The people of the kingdom saw this happening, and they turned up their smiles, knowing that sunshine and light always prevailed, and as their friends and neighbors fell, stepped forwatrd in their places to draw close the people of the real world in deep loving embraces.
And the people of the real world killed them, to the last smiling person, and then went forth and tore down the kingdom, stealing its riches, laying waste to its structures.
The people of the real world knew laughter that day. They laughed at the silliness and naivity of those from the kingdom. They laughed because these fools had failed in their goal, and because if even only a few of the people of the kingdom had come baring swords rather than open arms, and the willingness to use them, then the people of the real world would have greeted the people of the kingdom with respect, and would have sat down to talk with them.
