Making Minds Free

“What we did, Doctor? Was it wise?”

“We brought down a corrupt religion, Peri. Minds clouded by dogma will now be free. These people now understand they will fail because of their decisions, not because of the fickleness of fate.”

Throngs of the once-worshipful tore a statue down from its pedestal. It crashed to the cobbled stones, the sound echoing off the plaza’s walls. The rounded head broke free and rolled away.

“Of all the things to worship, Doctor — a mouse?”

The Doctor shrugged. “He got what he wanted. The Brain always did want to take over the world.”
