Doomsday as a Psyops

Well known false prophet, Harold Camping stands by his earlier predictions that the world will end on Friday, Oct. 21. Originally, Camping had predicted hourly earthquakes and God’s judgment on May 21, to be followed by months of torment on Earth for those individuals left behind. Using numerical codes extracted from the Bible, Camping set the date for the end of everything for Oct. 21.

THE MACRO EFFECT

Many people will only see this as a sensational news about a nut case, but that is the brilliance of it. Rarely anyone thinks about the more macro effect of apocalypticism on political beliefs within American subcultures. In America, there is a causal relationship between theology and policy preferences in their voting and support. For political strategist brains like me, we study many things, more importantly, elite behavior and mass attitudes. In America, the politicization of premillennial theology used by various elites as well as its acceptance by and impact on the mass public is very much ingrained. It is fascinating because this is a classic tactic from a political strategist in order to incite the nation into a certain mindset. I highly doubt many noticed, so I am going to have to teach Humanity a little bit about American subculture psychology and I am quite sure I am going to get in trouble for revealing trade secrets. Dear Colleagues, I am doing it for world peace. It’s for a good cause.
World leaders, planners and military strategists require greater understanding of American millennial thought. Millennialism shapes both American culture and U.S. government policy. While most Americans are influenced to some degree by the ideas of pre-millennialism, many are unaware of the philosophical or theological underpinnings. Military and political strategic advisors charged with interpreting policy into strategy and acting on behalf of the nation on the international stage cannot afford to remain ignorant of the effects of pre-millennialism in America. Due to a general lack of awareness of millennialism and an uneasy reticence to discuss religious factors, understanding and analysis of American policies and their motives are often deficient. Additionally, the knowledge of cultural imprint on America that derives from millennialism is impaired among leaders, and this can be problematic for any political or military leader or planner attempting to achieve fruitful strategy, operations and programs with the USA.

Since the beginning of the Republic, various forms of millennial (End times prophecies) religious doctrines, have shaped U.S. national security strategy. Of all doctrines, dispensational pre-millennialism is the one that drives changes in the current U.S. security policy and subsequent commitment of the instruments of national power today. Millennial ideas contribute to a common American understanding of international relations that guide American thinking irrespective of individual religious or political affiliation.
This contemporary form of millennialism took shape during the 1970s. Dispensational pre-millennialism is loosely based on depictions of battle between the forces of good and evil in the biblical Book of Revelation. In the U.S., dispensational pre-millennialism contends that in the very near future Jesus Christ will ‘rapture,’ or remove his church from the Earth. A period of intense tribulations and battles will follow, culminating with a cataclysmic defeat of Satan. Jesus would then establish an earthly kingdom for 1,000 years – the millennium. Today, the theological doctrines of dispensational pre-millennialism contribute significantly to American culture. This has resulted in a pervasive sense of determinism and pessimism that has significant implications for U.S. security policy around the world.
This is the heart and the Achilles heel of America: Millenial-based Foreign Policy is their strategic hubris, and compels them to become more increasingly reckless with their international action, and continues to over-commit the military in ways the Nation cannot afford.

As far as driving the psyché of the masses, this type of tactic is to have collective anxiety over things like apocalyptic war, an Anti-Christ alive and at work somewhere on the Earth and the need to secure our eternal destiny by our own hand and if you understood what I just said, they would usually tie this fear that was incited to a misguided foreign and security policy that will rely upon employment of the military instrument of power. It is meant to water the warmongering seeds being planted.

    How can we wake the dead? Like zombies they march to their doom. We shout on rooftops but they cannot hear, they’re deaf. The sun shines bright but they do not see, they’re blind.
