World-wide Ambitions Leading to Apocalyptic Consequences

Reader comment on item: Take Vladimir Putin's Nuclear Threats Seriously
in response to reader comment: Nuclear Option Always Considered An Offensive Tool - Even When Considering America's First In Time Use

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 22, 2022 at 10:21

This world is filled with movie time spectacles of apocalyptic adventures covering virtually every scenario and imagination possible, from war of the worlds (variations are many) to alien invasions and conquered planetary landscapes in which a dominant ancient lifeform is on a targeted explorations of a galaxy they seek to bring to submission for the greater cause to culminate in ambitions of glory. Sound familiar? The list is long, nefarious, and not lacking in versions and variations over the many decades of earth's movie industry. Yet, as spectacular as these products have been in engaging the fertile minds of a voracious audience for such things, they pale for comparison to a reality that has been in development for nearly as long for reasons that exceed the normal human mind's capacity to grasp.
While much to be noticed here has initial origins going back to the ancients, we'll make references to them later, commencing our focus to certain horrific events that occurred last century, but affecting the lives of a surviving few that witnessed a tragedy too few understand for not having been there; but the evidence still shocks the normal mind when attempting to grasp the horror of nuclear devastation. Of such are Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the legacies of which are stark reminders of humanity going out of bounds for similar reasons cited above about pursuing domination of the species without really comprehending what was driving those minds to such extent. Entering here with such thoughts as to why we hear of and read about certain global ambitions of a similar sort, the world is about to be presented with such renewed actions which will lead to exploitation by nuclear destruction; and who will stop it?
The exploration here is based upon the premise that humanity, either in local governance or in superpower dominance, will not be able to control or contain what is being built up as we see ambitions of empire now, as of this writing, taking what does not belong to the offending parties and in defiance of all that is good and decent, destroying entire ethnic population groups for reasons that defy any civil sense of existence; and a globally weak community of international bodies are defenseless in this unwillingness to be arbiters towards keeping all concerned equally safe, while peace is marketed as a commodity for the rich. What becomes the guarantor for obtaining that which is not otherwise protected? The superpower insurance of nuclear capability, a commodity developed in evil intentions and is now maintained for both protection against misuse by some and at the same time, wielded by unruly beasts of ill-tended ideologies.
The mindsets of those who hold such power are governed by thoughts of superiority, equity in strength, and for purposes of being fair in such abilities, restraint; knowing how and why such power needs to be controlled by intelligent responsibility. It is here that the world finds itself in compromised defensive posturing since not all holders of such power are willing to demonstrate the restraint to keep the world safe. Instead, such power is held in contempt to those who hold it in reserve for the safety of all; the contemptuous are fill with ideological hatred and would not hesitate to threaten, then deploy the threat if it served a purpose of completing these acts of hate.
We see now, however, that those who are holders of such power are in both actions backed by the nuclear threat and further development of threatened new nuclear power are locked in the ambitions of power and the nuclear threat is in the background. Others who hold such power for the restraint are now faced with acting in commitment to defend against the nuclear threat; but wait; will they? Failure to do so will lead to the consequences we alluded to above, apocalyptic and catastrophic: who is ready for that?
This is the reality now facing a world that is rejecting the rule of law imposed by a Sovereign Almighty. Failure to seek Him in this time will result in humanity's tragic entry into a future without a Savior.
Who is ready for that?
