Good morning, ladies and gentleman, and congratulations on your promotions. You are now all official members of the Ministry of the Protection of Vampires. The creation of this new branch of the government had to be done faster than we had liked to, so excuse us the name. As you might all know, the government isn't denying the existence of vampires anymore. Which means new measures need to be taken.
The existence of vampires, although shocking to the general populace, was no secret to us. Vampires have been among us for a long time and we have been working together with the League of Vampires to keep vampire related accidents under covers. The League is a small group of vampires that strives for coexistence with humans and is currently the closest thing vampires have to a representative. For a long time we had both decided that the best way to preserve both species was to keep vampirism a secret, but demographics have shifted. Currently, about 1 in 1000 people are vampires. This made it difficult to contain them, as more and more vampires were asking for equal rights and more videos of vampires using their powers were going viral.
The premise of vampires entering our society is very interesting on paper. Even though they can only work nights shifts, they are many times more efficient in many jobs than humans through their superhuman strength, speed and reflexes. They also tend to live way longer, meaning that the average vampire has more work experience than the average human. They also opened a new market to these things called blood-oranges. People were comparing them to snozzcumbers? Don't ask me, I don't know what snozzwhates are. Point is that they mean money.
The problem we're experiencing is that a lot of people aren't taking the reveal very well. Vampires are an image of fear, which makes it difficult for humans to accept them. It has been recently confirmed under the masses that vampires, unlike the myth, do not need permission to enter someone's home; technically they can just waltz in, take your blood, and walk out without much consequences due to their abilities. This causes humans to feel unsafe. Getting bitten by a vampire means inescapable doom: you either die or turn into a vampire yourself. That vampires lose all their powers during the day isn't making things any better, because this inspires a 'we must strike first' attitude in a lot of people. We already had various court cases of people who thought they were doing God's work by driving wooden stakes through innocent vampire citizens.
In reality, biting accidents don't really happen all that often. After all, vampires have been among us the whole time. Our statistics say the chance of getting killed by a cow is higher than getting bitten by a vampire. Vampires are overall just as reasonable as any human. They have blood-oranges as alternative and killing humans is seen as a sign of weakness and lack of self-control. The League of Vampires has almost perfect integrity in the vampire community and has ways of finding out if you've bitten a human. Consequences follow. Telling people this, however, had little effect. Media found vampirism to be a controversial topic, and things have been going downwards since the news is covering vampire-related accidents.
Given these facts, what is our best course of action? What measures could possibly be taken to calm down the masses? Some vampires have their objections as well, but they are being taken care off by the League. We don't have to bother with them.
