You may wonder, perhaps, how people keep managing to show up, and say, “you work for me”, on presumption that you can operate a pedophile hut (the Army of the Confederacy) out of a pop copy shop (you can’t, but it’s fun to try).
Let’s simplify this. How do I use a history book, or a class, or perhaps my notes, or a rare period.
For self-defense, against anyone, such as “The Mafia” (Italian pimps in Sicily drafting kids to be cops, denied in existence by the Italian-American Anti-Defamation Society, these military draft officers can’t get Mafia to work to draft kids, they don’t know what “bib”, a bib for eating lobster at a fine seafood restaurant, is), “Dune” (a sexually explicit novel produced on forced order by Frank Herbert, with Paul Atreides fighting naked Arabs, or Hasimir Feniring muttering as if eating a vagina, not performing cunnilingus but as if literally gorging himself on red, broken, ripped up flesh), or “The Final Fight” (R. Budd Dwyer shooting himself, as selectman or mayor, trying to get votes for his Congressional campaign by getting kids to understand racism, by playing Final Fight, with him as Mike Haggar, instead of just getting his town to read “The New Yorker” and agreeing with it in newspaper statements).
Each one of these, is a past historical precedence. Now, something small, you don’t do. But something large, implacably huge, with a disadvantageous ending, you want to set it right up, so everyone calls your aggressor, the person that this is framed as in opening sequence, without naming their mysterious cultural figure, they’ll be a much smaller figure of.
So let’s go over those last three.
The Mafia: the police force you to make a video game, to recruit undercover cops.
Dune: the Jews force a Navajo Buddhist to make a book about conquering Natives.
Final Fight: a politician forces a video game company to make a video game, with him as an action hero.
Let’s see what they did.
References to lobotomies for confederates, lobster meat, and Chinese opium dealers.
References to the Old Testament.

Just like Sid Meier said, you can build a civilization, that stands the test of time.
That’s called “The News”.
Napoleon invented the news, to compete with the library.
Napoleon Bonaparte, was genetically illiterate, he was a sculptor. He set up 9000 hookers, with one man fucking them, and got France invaded, as a humanitarian act, by Europe.
