Honesty is the Best Policy, or Surviving an Apocalypse

by solaris2001

The George Washington Virus was a manmade bug that attacked the brain, destroying our ability to lie. Some well-intentioned Occupier snuck it out of the CDC and released it on a bus in Midtown Atlanta as a giant middle finger to the banks. What he didn’t realize was that the world needs liars. Families tore each other limb from limb over dinner. Neighborhoods became warzones. After days of rioting they closed the airports, but it was too late. Cities burned. A day after it hit D.C., the nukes launched. It only took honesty four weeks to burn the world alive.
