Dark is the future.
Malthusian catastrophes envision the collapse of human civilization or the environment as the result of the pressure
of human population and consumption on the planet.
From climate change to resource wars and mass famines in the overpopulated future, Malthusian catastrophe scenarios take many forms;
at times prominent scientists have endorsed them.
Faustian technology scenarios involve the destruction of human civilization by the fruits of our heedless technological advance.
Global destruction by nuclear weapons is the most prominent (and probable) Faustian scenario, but there are many others.
Cultural catastrophes involve the destruction of everything that makes life meaningful
and worth living by a soul-less and/or godless cosmopolitan culture.
Both fascism and communism in the XX century were nurtured on fears that the cold world of industrialized mass production would crush ordinary people.
In the XXI century terror is the most violent such ideology.
Finally, the old fashioned religious apocalypse is still with us, energized both by the development of ‘hot religion’
and a global situation which is broadly supportive of apocalyptic ideas.
One way to define the apocalypse is to say it is an era of infinite change;
the apocalyptic intuitions and fears of our times are not the product of superstition or ignorance;
they are a response to what seems to be happening around us. Dogma is a dark vision of the future, the catastrophic evolution/reaction of our present’s actions.
We are DOGMA, we are the fuckin' apocalypse.
