Awaiting The Next Crisis

Saul Alinsky was the leading American practitioner of socialist agitprop, which aimed at "rubbing raw the sores of discontent" to scare the middle class into accepting "radical change."

This combination of agitprop and superstition reminds me of a scene from Mel Gibson's movie /Apocalypso/ where the "big government" of the ancient Maya are sacrificing there people to convince the angry sun god to stop inflicting a drought on the nation:
