H.L. Mencken, wrote in his book Prejudices: First Series,
“The urge to SAVE HUMANITY is almost always a FALSE front for the URGE to RULE”
Demogogues WORSHIP POWER, replacing democracy with DICTATORSHIP
Demogogues manipulate “the people”, USING “democracy” to END democracy.
Their utopian “BAIT and SWITCH” ultimately brings dystopia.
DEMOGOGUES think it better to RULE in HELL than SERVE in HEAVEN
John Lennon IMAGINES “utopia” by IGNORING REALITY
Utopia literally means “nowhere“. Tragic “dystopia” stares us all in the face. If humanity did not kill each other for the reasons Lennon criticized, they would find another reason to kill.
The more accurate and factual prophetic model for the “future” is George Orwell’s “1984”, not “Imagine”. (or even “Yellow Submarine”)
Human nature is inherently “religious”. The religious “instinct” is built into our nature by our Creator.“MEN DO NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS;
The First Commandment is to worship the ONE true God. The Second Commandment warns against IDOLATRY. When humanity ignores the First Commandment, the Second Commandment warning applies.

Which “god[s]” WILL you choose to SERVE? Like the Bob Dylan song says, we ALL “Serve Somebody”.
Helaire Belloc: “MEN DO NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS”
When the GODS of the NEW PAGANISM come they will not be merely INSUFFICIENT, as were the gods of Greece, nor merely FALSE; they will be EVIL. The “New” worship, FOOLISHLY EXPECTING satisfaction, will FALL inevitably FALL into IDOL (or satan) WORSHIP”
The DEMO-GOGIC “CULT of PERSONALITY” is a case of POLITICAL IDOLATRY.
“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against against principalities and powers, spiritual wickedness in his places”. (Ephesians 6)
If one does not worship the one, true God, what is the “ALTERNATIVE”?
“The CULT of PERSONALITY” in a case of POLITICAL IDOLATRY – the DEMOGOGUE MANIPULATING the MASSES TOWARDS POWER.
BY WORSHIPPING “the GREAT LEADER”, the MASSES ENDED UP WORSHIPPING THEMSELVES …
NARCISSISM, NIHILISM, NONSENSE, leading us “NOWHERE” …
P.S. FREEDOM vs FASCISM
“I GET ON MY KNEES and PRAY …
WE DON’T GET …
FOOLED … AGAIN” …
