In his short short on the ultimate weapon, Sanders does a very credible job of setting the stage for his reveal at the end. It's a political short about the fragility of control, and it reminded me a bit of an old story by Frank Russel, "And Then There Were None". Enough so that I googled all the bits of it I could remember until it popped out of the internet (See link above).

From release/information:

excerpt: "It contains the most dangerous weapon on the face of this world," he snarled. "The dark ages will be upon us again. All the advances we've made in the last decade — the Patriot Acts, I, II, and III; the tireless work of the Censorship Bureau, the brilliance of the Office for Public Protection and Propaganda — will be washed away in a tidal wave of anarchy." Sarcastically, he added, "You do know what that is, don't you?"
