The Coming of the Apocalypse

During a recent search of extremist sites, I came across this surprisingly well-reasoned article on the apocalyptic beliefs of many persons on the political fringe. Every extreme ideology has it’s own variant: the race war, the second coming of Christ, the proletariat revolution, the collapse of industrial civilization, etc. Take away the inevitability of these cataclysms, and many radical political ideologies become obvious flights of fantasy rather than accurate assessments of the current state of the world.
