Once upon a time the Seer was famous throughout the lands of the earth.
He was knowledgeable, he was informative, and he spoke the truth.
He provided a Service to the World.
He was trusted everywhere for his integrity.
In the land of BeeBee, where he lived, all the people contributed willingly to feed him.
And for many years he gave great value for money.
He was more intelligent and much fairer than other seers who were paid by rich men.
But, sadly, times have changed.
It is now known that he was badly flawed, and that he lied to protect his reputation.
Once his integrity was compromised, it was a slippery slope.
And now the corrupt rulers of the land use him to spout their propaganda, to crush free thinkers, and to control the unruly masses to the north.
These people are still compelled under threat of imprisonment to fund his lies.
The lies that threaten their freedom.
They consider the BeeBee Seer to be the mouthpiece of their oppressors.
And they despise him.
