Apocalypse and Human Reality
Humanity seems to really like images of Apocalypse. We want the heavens to punish the wicked. We long for a restored world where all is right. What humanity forgets is that we tend to bring on the disasters ourselves - through economics, injustice, greed, and misusing our resources. WE are the four horsemen.
And we don’t get a restored world once we do it. We get grief and hunger and warlords and serfdom and starvation and dark ages when it all gets too big. System collapse. Failed states. Women wailing in the night. Empty bellied children. Dead young men.
And the universe goes on, in spite of our foolishness.
