In the Regeneration - the man-made messiah

Chapter September 6, 2012


“Can’t you see what they’re doing? They’re building a platform for major change. Hunter, if this is allowed to proceed to its natural conclusion, we’ll end up with one of two entirely different planets – either one finally at peace with God or one free of the issue entirely. Either way we’ll be able to move on and prepare for time after oil. We all know that without major change, life as we know it will run dry when we run out of oil. How much is left, Hunter – how many years – is it really as few as five or ten?”

“No no, more than that!” the President said, uneasy about the tangent of this conversation.

“Hunter, let’s face it, the world blindly followed America into an all-consuming feast. And the gluttonous beast that emerged is now ravaging the planet, and guzzling its last drop of oil.”

The President didn’t even want to think about it.

“Don’t worry John, we’ll find alternative sources of energy.”

“Not like oil we won’t.”

“It’s difficult,” the President admitted.

“To generate global dialogue – and we need it to openly discuss the end of oil – you first need a catalyst. What they are doing is putting the Regeneration up as that catalyst. As I see it, without something as…. dramatic as this, the world will be utterly unprepared for the end of oil. The only other catalyst I can imagine, with equivalent power to alter the current mind-set on the planet, is nuclear war.”
