Just occurred to me that the effect of scientific and technical concepts has had a major damping of the usual turning to spiritual powers while searching for salvation. It used to be so easy to rally the masses to seek herd safety . But today ,with the proliferation of smart phones, the attention span of the herd has been reduced to mere seconds and diffused by random unfocused messages known as false news. Societies ,both religious and political ,need to get back to the basics of 'us against them' .Unite in groups of common belief lead by a self proclaimed chooser of belief . This would reduce individual angst ,give comfort to many ,and allow some to revel in greed and control while uniting groups to overcome or recruit the 'not us' .This devout belief system will allow all to avoid individual responsibility as events just happen.
