Popcorn's good whether the world's ending or not.
So, here's how humanity goes every once in a while. For a couple generations, everyone's happy and content, thinking they're safe and secure on planet
Earth. Then, something happens to spark interest in disaster. A large volcanic eruption or two, perhaps, or a war...or maybe a pandemic. And,
suddenly, people start crying, "The end is nigh! The end is nigh!"... until the craze wears off and people go back to their lives. In the past, this
has gone over practically without any associated conspiracies because, beyond a few decades ago, people trusted themselves and their governments. But,
now, people have a (well-placed) distrust in their governments, and the information being exchanged by these top officials is, at the same time, much
more likely to fall into the hands of people like you or me, who will then take that information and use it for our own agendas.
So, what we get, then, is what we have here with this thread. People are suddenly back on the "End is nigh!" bandwagon, and, when the government
reacts accordingly, their leaked correspondence only serves to stoke the apocalyptic flames.
We are most definitely living in a unique time in history...but not because of some nefarious plot to hide global disasters from the public. Our time
is unique because of the massive exchange, and interception, of information combined with historic levels of distrust.
