Nowadays there is a variety of ideals for one to choose from that are able to assume responsibility for one’s own deeds. The chronic Armageddon originates in the physical or emotional disaffection to which circumcision is conductive.
The decisive battle between good and evil is the gold rush of the deprived ones. The desensitized people are partially experiencing the end of the world.
