One could say we are watching a struggle between two great and ancient religions, whose roots are in the distant past. One is known as 'capitalism' whose tenets are free will and individual salvation and damnation. The other attempts wants to build a secure group tower.
In truth many find freedom too distressing and frightening to endure. They'd prefer a handout provided it was assured; and a short and tolerable life to the terrifying prospect of eternity;
But as the story of the tower of Babel -- and the fall of Communism shows us -- security is illusory. We are trapped in a glorious and scary universe, whether we like it or not.
