Item #: SCP-4004

Object Class: Thaumiel

Laconic Containment Procedures: Keep it in an ultra-secure vault connected to Site-02, keep tabs on anyone that knows about it, keep the number of people that know about it to an absolute bare minimum, give the anomaly anything it needs, and don't talk to or directly look at it.

Laconic Description: SCP-4004 is a mass of anomalous objects including the corpse of Joshua Abraham Norton that is able to manipulate the "noosphere," or the total sum of ideas people can have, and inspires a constant sense of pro-American nationalism and the creation of a general disagreement with anti-American statements. Currently, this manipulation is only able to affect the United States or areas it controls. The corpse can talk.

Mount Rushmore is also a component of SCP-4004 and contains some of the anomaly inside of it. Designated SCP-4004-Beta, it is able to anomalously eliminate things it sees as threats to the US.

SCP-4004 sees and reacts to several negative events in recent American history, and drafts a declaration addressed to the O5 Council in which it demands that all branches of the US government be vacated so the common man could rule. The Foundation is now considering changing SCP-4004 from Thaumiel to Keter.

Additional Context: The declaration suggests that SCP-4004 wants to dismantle the current ruling structure of the US entirely. Given that the author of SCP-4004 goes by the name "Communism will win," can be inferred that SCP-4004 wants to replace the Republic system with a communist one.

SCP-4004 was an entry in the SCP-4000 Contest, where it won 7th place.
