Since the vast majority of people in the world have, apparently, abandoned all faith in the salvation Christ offers in the form of deliverance from sin and its consequences, the promise of temporal salvation, in the form of deliverance from suffering and its consequences, has readily become the only form of salvation that moderns appear willing to consider.
Take a moment to consider the many ways in which our totalitarian overlords promise to "save us." They promise to deliver man from the harm, loss, and ruin caused by climate change, racism, inequality, social constructs, nationalism, political oppression, deadly plagues and so forth. They insist that saving man from these temporal catastrophes is not only necessary but urgently inevitable. They claim they have all the tools and mechanisms required to manifest this salvation in the world. But the success of the great temporal salvation requires that man become submissive, passive, and enslaved or, as the dark saviors prefer to put it, "co-operative", "responsible", and "accountable."
The dark saviors want people to believe - to fully, wholeheartedly, and devoutly believe - in no other world but the temporal world. The dark saviors want people to accept this world as a meaningless prison, yet at the same time motivate man to aspire to the "meaning" of making the meaningless prison comfortable, fair, and pain-free.
The dark saviors pretend to offer meaning and "being", but what they actually wield is meaninglessness and non-being. The dark saviors' creativity is anti-creativity for it "creates" only non-being; it steals from God to create a caricature of being - a false image of being. This false image of being fuels the push to save the world, and it hides within it the final drive to damn all souls before non-being consumes and destroys the world.
The dark saviors are the embodiment of diabolical freedom and final evil.* Diabolical freedom is the final and ultimate resistance against Christ. It represents the final necessity of the world and only the world and the final enslavement to the world. Final evil is the destruction of man - the active and willing choice of the way of non-being over the way of Being.
The final destruction of man also entails the final destruction of the temporal world the dark saviors' promise to "save".
*The concepts of diabolical freedom and final evil are drawn from Nikolai Berdyaev's The Meaning of the Creative Act.
