"And what if I told you you could kill your imperfect self?
What if I told you you could achieve your fullest potential? StrexCorp Synernists Inc. is a proud supporter of the greater Desert Bluff and Night Vale community" (Episode 43).
After a few episodes, we learn that StrexCorp has actually taken over Nightvale and the radio station. The original religious practices of Nightvale are banned and replaced with The Smiling God. Again, this coincides with the insistent spread of Christianity despite other religions existing. StrexCorp employees invaded the radio station and attempted to take over their broadcast, but Cecil refused to be submissive. Multiple times he pleads to his listeners, urging them to resist StrexCorp and stand firm in their beliefs. In Episode 49, he says,
"Today is the day. There is only one thing for today, and that is the destruction of the hated StrexCorp, and freeing our town of Night Vale. We will work no longer. We will worship a Smiling God no longer. We have failed before, we have failed so many times at so many tasks, but at this, we will not fail.
I mean, I really, really, hope that we will not fail.
In any case, we will be devoting all of today’s broadcast to the revolution with no interruptions" (Epsiode 49).
