One Piece Kicks Off the World Government's Next Major Conspiracy

One Piece is now setting the stage for the first real arc of the final saga of the series, and the World Government is making some pretty terrifying moves as they have started their next major cover up with the newest chapter of the series! The events of the Wano Country arc might have seemed like they have been the biggest in the franchise to date, but it's been made clear in the chapters since the end of the arc that things are only going to get much more massive as the series continues towards the grand finale of it all.

Luffy and the Straw Hats have been making their way to their first major island in the final saga, and during the recent slate of chapters fans have been given updates about the current state of the world. A lot has happened since Luffy and the others made their way to Wano Country, and the Marines have been making their play to shift the balance of the world powers while Luffy and the others had been distracted. Now the newest chapter of the series has given a fans of just what kind of power they really have to erase everything and anything they want.

Chapter 1060 of One Piece follows up on the mysterious Sabo cliffhanger that teased that he killed the king of Alabasta during the Reverie, and it's revealed that he had since escaped to an island named Lulusia that was one of the eight countries that apparently rebelled against the government following the Reverie. When Sabo's communication is intercepted, it's soon revealed that the Marines had been ordered to not only forget about Lulusia, but never think about it again as they now claim it "never existed." 

At the same time, the king that had sat on the throne in the center of the world crosses out the island of Lulusia on a map and suddenly a weapon from the sky rains down an explosive power to wipe the island off the map entirely. With this kind of power to wipe out an entire island, and thus wipe it from the Marines' existence as a result, it not only hints at what might have happened during the Lost Century period but also teases the Marines' really might be in the dominant world power right now. 

What do you think of the Marines making their move on the rest of the world? Do you think this cover up is a hint at why there's so much lost history already?
