Click the image to listen to the audio which discusses the ten steps to the end of democracy and what steps or signs we may see at the end of civilization.
Discussed is how Naomi Wolf outlines ten steps despots use to close down societies. These steps, Wolf claimed, are being observed in America now.
The steps are:
- Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
- Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
- Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
- Set up an internal surveillance system.
- Infiltrate and harass citizens groups.
- Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
- Target key individuals.
- Control the press
- Cast criticism as espionage and dissent as treason.
- Subvert rule of law

Here is an article written in 2007: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/apr/24/usa.comment
The artist continues the discussion casually connecting what the religious community might apply to end of world scenarios to more practical psychological aspects to the end of the human experience. Some of the things mentioned are: earthquakes, fires, draught, starvation, floods, sons pitted against fathers (families falling apart), pestilence and last, cannibalism.
