-Reviewed themes:
Other Themes:
- Society and just civilizations are held together by systems that can fall apart, easily.
- The strong tend to overpower the weak.
- Rationality is often overcome by evil and chaos.
- Civilizations that cannot uphold their rules can be destroyed.
- In society, people have the tendency to devalue (vilify) the innocent, and to value (exalt) the villains; thus, evil ends up on top.
- No matter how civilized humankind becomes, there is always the potential for civilization to revert to savagery.
- The core of human nature is dark, and people need society and structure to control that impulse-driven part of human nature.
- Evil is not something supernatural that lurks in the shadows; it is a creation of the human mind.
