The nature of our situation is that The System - which, albeit with ever-decreasing effectiveness - keeps alive the unprecedented world population of about eight billion - is now un-reformably evil.
All of the major functional sub-systems are orientated towards evil (including major Christian churches), and these subsystems maintain each other in the evil purpose.
Thus The System acts as a powerful, multi-pronged and continuous means of corruption of 'the masses' of individual men and women.
The System is also purposively self-destructing, overall - again by many means.
Therefore The System is certainly going to collapse.
Yet, at the same time - because it is "a system", and this is what systems do and are - The System has an intrinsic tendency to sustain itself, and to grow.
Thus The System is continually trying to extend into the interstices of all aspects of society (e.g. to bring the family and voluntary relationships into The System), and to extend its penetration into less-systematized nations of the world.
Also, The System acts to crush dissent and resistance to itself: again both within nations, and also by setting core-System nations to invade (physically and ideologically) the less-systematized nations (e.g. in the many recent revolutions and wars, initiated and sustained by the Western powers).
So, the situation is that The System is irredeemably evil; and the longer it continues to exist, the more evil The System will inflict-upon the all-too-easily corruptible (because materialistic, God-rejecting, Christ-rejecting) masses.
And The System is destroying itself - so that this situation cannot continue indefinitely.
From which I infer that the longer The System lasts, the worse this will be for the souls of Men.
This would seem to imply a need actively to destroy The System - and there is some truth in this; so long as the motivation for destruction is Good: i.e. on the side of God and divine creation.
But the end does not justify the means; so that System destruction can only do good when its methods are good.
Therefore we need to destroy the system by-means-of doing Good - every step of the way.
Destroy evil By Doing Good in all our actions.
That is the ideal. That is how Christians must proceed.
It's obvious once stated!
