Chapter 4 -
Unlike false religions which are wholly Satanic and meant to create a false understanding of the world, the administration of public life for a group of people is a necessity. One can observe the function of administration as one considers the progression from the father of a family to the patriarch of a clan to the chief of a tribe. All benefit if the leader of a group first seeks the welfare of the group for which he is responsible. Things do not go well if the leader is weak, seeking to indulge himself, or vulnerable to the manipulation of others.
Satan's plan is to collectivize the entire world. To achieve this he works to prod people to accept increasingly greater levels of collectivization. He has made use of various rulers throughout history in an attempt to find the right combination of factors that will achieve his objective. While religion seeks to entice compliance, institutionalize it through ritual, or achieve it through manipulative fear and greed, a leader who can use physical force is able to establish a much more cohesive collective. This can be seen with any street gang, warlord, and most governments.
The establishment of a monarch, emperor, dictator, tyrant, or other leadership position creates a control system for a collective that is much more tangible than can be achieved through religious systems alone. Through rulership, elements of more significant coercion (such as taxation, judicial ruling, imprisonment, and even capital punishment) can be employed. The contrast between a capable leader and a weak one can be seen in the example of Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus. Marcus was a capable administrator and his son was a fool and a coward. As a result, various political intrigues flourished under Commodus finally resulting in his assassination.
History contains an almost endless series of rulers who were maneuvered into positions that advanced Satan's plans often to the disadvantage of the ruler himself. In the nation of Israel the first king, Saul, was intemperate was was finally killed. The second king (David) initially had a heart for the Lord, but towards the end of his reign, he had grown so arrogant he had a man killed so that he could take the man's wife for himself. His son Solomon also made a good initial start, but came to be influenced by his many wives into idolatry and away from God. As a result, God split Israel into two nations to see if one might remain faithful (neither did). We can see that one of his sons (Rehoboam) didnft even make a decent start of his rulership;
And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions. 1 Kings 12:11
The main purpose of rulership is to keep order primarily by the use of physical force to punish crime.
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. - Romans 13:3-4
The emergence of civilizations (those groups of people with written records) seem to indicate those who were first being guided by Satan in the direction he would have them go. This seems to have been in Mesopotamia. The fact that some other people groups were left at a sort of tribal level of existence (some for thousands of years) might indicate that Satan was concentrating his manipulative efforts in only a few selected areas. One might surmise that much of this human experience was the result of experiments conducted to learn what would be needed to get humans to collectivize themselves for his use.
One can imagine that some of Satan's earliest frustrations was in how difficult it was to keep people working for the benefit of the collective when people often saw opportunities to seek after their own interests at the expense of the collective he was trying to build. In an attempt to control a ruler that might act impetuously for his own interests Satan often added a second tier that sometimes evolved into an aristocracy which would act as a moderating influence on the leader. This is sort of like adding a governor to the design of an engine to insure that problems do not arise from getting out of control. In conjunction with a religious system, the collective can then more approximate stability.
The structure of a society along the lines of hierarchy allows for most people to be designated as subservient or components for use. However, there are positions required to administer some of the control functions of a collective especially as the collective increases in size. The saying 'everyone wants to be Hitler' captures a little of the desire humans have to direct and control others. This characteristic is often found among those attracted to positions of administration giving us what is known throughout the world as the bureaucratic mind-set. Having the possibility of increasingly greater control allows the ambitious to channel their efforts within the constraints of the collective.
