Deus Ex Video Game – What is our Future?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Video games seem to be all the talk lately from the mainstream to the flows of sewage of the Deep State. A few days ago Elon Musk had changed his profile picture to the main character in the video game Deus Ex. The underlying theme of the video game is a Government Agent who exposes the Illuminati and their deliberate release of a virus which becomes a global pandemic. The reason the virus was released was a means for the Illuminati to control society.

The foundation of the game is that of the choice given to the player. Based on your choices the ending changes and each player gets to choose what ending they want. An important question for each of us is how do we want our ending to be? An ending where the best is yet to come? To succumb to the fears propagated by the Deep States and destroy our economy, religion, lives?

Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia about the storyline of the original Deus Ex:

While each game has a distinct story, they are all set within the same world: an Earth of the future which has evolved a dystopian cyberpunk society. In this setting, several organizations compete for overall control of the world. Several of the societies mentioned or shown are inspired by real-world and invented secret societiesand conspiracy theories. The one constant through the series is the Illuminati, although FEMA, Majestic 12, and the Knights Templar are also featured. The main characters in the series possess artificially acquired superhuman abilities, referred to as “Augmentation”.

Deus Ex takes place during 2052, while the world is facing a crisis caused by a mysterious nano-virus called the Gray Death. In the midst of the crisis, JC Denton, a nano-augmented rookie agent for the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO), is sent to eliminate terrorist cells, but ends up drawn into the various schemes of rival factions and secret societies, who are responsible for the epidemic. Once he arrives in Area 51, Denton has the choice between neutralizing technology and plunging the world into a second dark age, allying with the Illuminati, or merging with an advanced AI so as to impose a benevolent dictatorship. Invisible War takes place twenty years later, after a massive economic depression and period of war called the Collapse that was indicated by Denton’s actions and a combination of possible events from the first game. The game’s protagonist, Alex D, a clone of Denton, is drawn into a conflict between two seemingly opposing factions, and learns of conspiratorial factions which seek to drastically change the world, including JC Denton: Alex can perform missions for any of them, and eventually becomes able to choose which organization should rule the world.

Human Revolution is set in 2027, twenty-five years before the first title, where corporations have extended their influence past the reach of global governments and the development of bio-mechanical augmentation by a few elite and powerful companies threatens to destabilize society. The game follows Adam Jensen, the security chief for bio-tech company Sarif Industries. After a devastating attack on Sarif’s headquarters which leaves him near-death, Adam is forced to undergo radical augmentation surgery, and he becomes embroiled both in the search for the attackers and the political and ethical repercussions of augmentation technology. The Fall is a parallel story, set after the spin-off novel Icarus Effect. It follows the story of Ben Saxon, an augmented former British SAS mercenary, who is on the run from his former employers, a group of augmented mercenaries that play a crucial part in the plot of Human RevolutionMankind Divided is set in 2029, 2 years after the events of Human Revolution in a world dealing with the consequences of the previous game’s events. Regardless of the choice made by Adam at the end of Human Revolution, the Illuminati have twisted his message and augmented individuals are persecuted and feared. A disillusioned Adam works with an international taskforce (hinted to be a precursor to UNATCO in Deus Ex) designed to stop the rising wave of terrorism brought on by the disenfranchised and desperate augmented while working to uncover the perpetrators of the events that led to the current state of the world.
