Chapter 5 - War and
the Military Class
The orchestration of war allows Satan to achieve many objectives that would otherwise be difficult.
1. He can periodically remove a large number of males from a population and thus make it more vulnerable to deception.
2. He can use the threat to family, possessions, and life to generate enough fear sufficient to keep people dependent upon his 'solutions'.
3. He can motivate groups to merge into greater collectives either in fear of an external threat or through outright conquest.
4. He can get people to transfer their desire for protection and even sometimes affection (in the form of patriotism) from their families to the state further strengthening the collective.
Another element to the Satanic use of war is that there is something about killing humans that is attractive to Satan. Jesus calls him a murderer (John 8:44). Whatever it is that draws Satan to kill humans, it must be secondary to his need to form us into the collective he feels he needs to advance his plans.
With a single ruler war can be initiated for any number of reasons such as greed for acquisition, fear of being attacked, wounded pride, even religious duty. A significant effect of war or the threat of war is that each collective becomes more and more willing to accept greater restrictions on individual freedom because the collective is seen as protection against the damage that would be inflicted by an attack from another collective.
Young males have a natural desire to show off and demonstrate their strength. This makes them vulnerable to be enticed away from their families (before they become invested in families of their own) with visions of glory and opportunities to test their abilities. The inclination of rulers to so exploit young men was cited as one of the things the nation of Israel could expect when they rejected God and wanted a king.
And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. - 1 Samuel 8:11-12
When we consider what Satan achieves through his orchestration of conflict between various collectives (peoples or nations), we can see that he is mostly seeking to move the members of collectives to be willing to accept increasingly greater control of their lives.
The difficulty Satan has using humans to build a global collective he can take over is that human organization usually falls apart. There was a humorous TV commercial once showing cowboys attempting to herd cats (notorious for being independent). This is illustrative of some of the problems Satan has guiding people into a collective suitable for his purposes.
Bickering, betrayal, in-fighting, and even disinterest eventually cause collectives to fall apart. War is useful to Satan in that it can keep a population more inclined to accept the infringement of their liberty in order to sustain the collective. It is also useful to cull males out of a population so that it is less likely to act in its own best interests and more susceptible to manipulation and deception.
Even when war is not an active or looming event, an armed force is useful to keep a population more compliant. The attraction of military service over the years has been a favored social status, loot obtained in conquest, and an advantageous position should one survive to retirement.
The St. Crispin day speech from Shakespeare's Henry the Fifth resonates with some at an emotional level regarding the intensity with which one can become bonded to military service and how such an appeal becomes a goal to which the next generation of young men strive. There is also a reinforcement between a religion and the ravages of war such that each strengthens the other. Satan has made significant use of this to attempt to hold his collectives together.
This exploitation of the human tendency to see oneself in lofty terms has been used by Satan in other arenas such as social and political causes over the centuries. However, its effectiveness may be seen more clearly in its military application as it has been used to seduce millions to their deaths.
