Oh My God! Earthlings are Insane! - Chapter 1725 - Anti-Control
When the seven puppets heard this, their fourteen eyeballs burned red. Their eyes were like fourteen sharp flaming blades, ready to cut Lu Siya into eight pieces.
Lu Siya raised her voice and anxiously said, “Listen, Yun Feidian. I know that you’re trying your best to climb up the ranks and control the nine mega corporations so that you can firmly grasp the rules of the entire Dragon City in your hands.
“However, don’t assume those seriously injured and dying first-generation Deity Realm experts are that old and muddleheaded.
“I can guarantee that they’re more shrewd than you think, and they also know how to be patient.
“Do you think that you’ve set up a large-scale underground organization under their noses and even infiltrated their core forces?
“Hehe. If you really think so, you are very wrong. They must have noticed your scheme a long time ago. They haven’t exposed you merely because you and your organization are still useful.
“The nine mega corporations all want to take full control of Dragon City, launch a colonization war on their own, and take the astronomical dividends for themselves.
“However, the owners of the nine mega corporations can’t find a suitable reason to get rid of the Red Dragon Army and the millions of ordinary citizens. They’re even less willing to risk their reputation and lose all decorum with the ordinary citizens.
“Therefore, they need an ambitious fool to help them charge forward and take the blame for all the infamy and sins of resorting to extreme means that they’re not willing to commit.
“If the fool succeeds, they’ll have ten thousand ways to steal the fruits of victory from the fool.
“If the fool fails, he will shoulder all the crimes. They’ll still be the high and mighty deities, the heroes who won the Monster War, as well as the glorious and decent entrepreneurs.
“It’s a pity, but it’s obvious that you, Yun Feidian, are the fool!”
Lu Siya’s harsh deduction made the seven puppets clench their teeth so hard that they began to crack.
Even Meng Chao, who was on the second deck, felt as if his eardrums had been cut by knives.
“Perhaps, it’s hard for you to accept the fact, but do you know why I betrayed the Lu family?”
Lu Siya wore an unsightly grin. “The public said that I betrayed the nine mega corporations to reap the fame and legacy that Meng Chao left behind. That’s why I became the spokesperson of several million ordinary citizens.
“However, there’s a problem with that statement. The nine mega corporations and the tens of millions of ordinary citizens have not been completely at odds. During our great victory in the Monster War, especially, the Deity Realm warriors who risked their lives to defeat the monster mastermind got seriously injured, and they were almost killed. They’re still heroes admired by thousands of people, and the nine mega corporations that they lead are, of course, regarded as the pillars of Dragon City. Even the ordinary posts of the nine mega corporations are ‘golden rice bowls’ that countless ordinary citizens flock to.
“Even if I really wanted to inherit everything that Meng Chao has left behind, there’s no need for me to betray the Lu family and break away from the nine mega corporations, is there?
“The problem is that, someone always has to do the hard, tiring, and dirty work for the Lu family, Sky Pillar Corporation, and the nine mega corporations to expand and grow until they become the rulers of the entire Other World. As a member on the sidelines, if I want the family’s support, I must be ‘willing and proactive.’ I have to take on these jobs and sacrifice a lot, maybe even everything.
“Meanwhile, the Lu family, Sky Pillar Corporation, and even the nine mega corporations have countless influential people who have seen the enormous market and the astronomical benefits Meng Chao has left behind. Don’t they want to take those markets and benefits away from me too?
“In short, if I choose to stay in the Lu family, I will only be a tool for the influential people to reap the ordinary people’s trust at best. I’ll live a glorious life on the surface, but in reality, I won’t have any control over what I do.
“That’s the real reason for my betrayal of the Lus, Sky Pillar Corporation, and even the nine mega corporations. I don’t want to be reduced to a tool!
“What about you, Yun Feidian? Have you seen the cruel fact that you are a tool?
“Or are you going to be an ostrich and bury your head in the sand after I’ve said so much? Are you going to lie to yourself and others?”
Although Lu Siya was still bound by the nano shackles and surrounded by the seven puppets, the seven puppets did not know what to do.
Shocked by her powerful words, the seven puppets were at a loss and twitching slightly instead.
“This is impossible…”
The seven puppets gnashed their teeth as if they were trying to convince Lu Siya again, but they seemed to be mumbling to themselves, “Nobody can turn me into a tool. Nobody!”
“The facts are right in front of you. Do you really think that Thundercloud Technology’s rapid development in the past year is all thanks to you and that it’s a really good thing?
“In this era where the humble superhumans are leading the development of their small and medium-sized enterprises, more and more ordinary citizens are becoming wary, resistant, and even hostile toward the nine mega corporations. In an era where the title of ‘nine wealthy families’ is gaining a negative connotation, becoming the leader of the nine mega corporations may not necessarily be good,” Lu Siya said coldly.
“The other day, thousands of furious ordinary citizens gathered at the entrance of Universe Corporation’s headquarters. You should have seen the overwhelming scene, right?
“This unstoppable force, which is like an erupting volcano, can destroy Universe Corporation’s headquarters in an instant. Of course, it also has the ability to drown Thundercloud Technology’s R&D center, destroying all of your life’s work and your hopes.
“Do you really think that you can control this flame that is thousands of degrees hot without being harmed in the slightest?
“Is it possible that the other mega corporations have given up part of the market and allowed Thundercloud Technology to take charge of a few major projects so that they can push you to the forefront and let Thundercloud Technology bear the brunt of most of the attacks aimed at the nine mega corporations from all directions?
“Is it possible that the managers of the other mega corporations also want to take advantage of the scorching flames, but they’re worried that they’ll be hurt, so they’re encouraging you, a fool, to face the fire?”
The faces of the seven puppets were filled with resistance.
The brilliance deep in their eyes was flickering rapidly as if their brains were overloading.
“Stop, Yun Feidian.”
“It’s not too late to turn back now,” Lu Siya said in a low voice. “Stop struggling with your death.”
