Wisdom To An Open Eye
“Doom and gloom has to be logical, carefully presented and designed to reach people who exist in a basic state of denial.

Recognizing that any prophecy, mystically or religiously based, is made so that there is enough time to make the necessary changes to prevent it from happening.
