How to take over the world:
- think up an ideal* that is ultimately unprovable, inconceivable, inexplicable, irreproachable and non-corporeal in nature (e.g. a “God”, the ‘common good’, the ‘State’, the ‘environment’, animal “rights”)
* this goal should also ultimately be essentially unachievable in reality.
- convince people that adhering to the [pursuit of the] ideal is more important than their own rational self-interest
- demonize anyone or anything that questions or tries to controvert the existence of the ideal in #1 or the [pursuit of the] realization of #2
- convince your following that the ‘demons’ created in #3 are a threat to #1 and must either convert or be destroyed
