Apocalypse: The Timeless Instrument of Power

An apocalypse is a method of attaining power. When political movements fail to attain support by conventional methods, they use apocalyptic theories to frighten the people into submission. Almost all civilizations, in the past two thousand five hundred years, have invoked the vision of an apocalypse to keep their population frightened and in control. When you hear modern intellectuals and politicians thundering from their pulpits (TV studios) that an apocalypse is imminent—that the apocalypse will rip your life apart, that your world is coming to an end, that they are the only ones who can save you and your world but only if submit to their will—then you should become aware that a new version of the brutal ancient game of power is now being played.
