The tyrants will sell the idea of a utopia. And, to realize the utopia, they will kill people; they will make their followers kill people.

There's a biblical myth of mankind having been driven out of the Garden of Eden. According to this biblical myth, men will try to regain their entry into the Garden of Eden. They will even kill millions, dreaming and hoping to take themselves back to the lost paradise.

Among the African tribes, as discovered by European explorers, banishment from the tribe was the worst possible punishment; this justice model of banishment, in Africa and elsewhere around the world, is a good reminder of how God, too, banished Cain, after Cain killed Abel.

I was blown away on hearing that there are indigenous peoples around the world and not just the African tribes who consider banishment as the worst punishment. I have done some research, and I found this to be very, very, very true.

The justice model of banishment as the worst possible punishment, is in fact the shadow of the original banishment: God drove mankind out of the Garden of Eden.

And, when the tyrants sell their idea of a utopia, they are simply working on the ancient hopes and longing to get back into the Garden of Eden.
