In the 1980s, books by Stephen King and Peter Straub were immensely popular. Something scary was going on but we couldn’t quite put our finger on it. Then came the 1990s, the “Conspiracy Decade”, when Internet helped bring the secret history to the masses and put a face to the vague fears of the 1980s. Horror merged with reality in 1999, with The Blair Witch Project. This genre of horror film seems to report the fear as authentic news, most recently in the 2014 movie, The Taking of Deborah Logan. (Further background: “Horror” Is Nothing But the Truth, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 19, 2015.)

The fear can be too much for some people, and they seek refuge in hyper-rationality. It is comfortingly called “Paranoia, Theory and White Male Crisis” as a totem to ward off the demons. “Ahem,” says Professor Pipe, “it is all a delusional narrative.” The grad students furiously scribble down notes. “There is a normative male crisis in contemporary American cultural representation amounting to a narrative mode of expression.” What academics call “paranoia” has in recent years “become established as an important, respected and topical area of research in academic circles, particularly within the spheres of Cultural Studies and American Studies.” 
And they “hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?'” (Revelation 6: 15-17).
“Mountains” signify evil loves and “rocks” signify falsities of faith. Professor Pipe (pseudonym) loves his little den of “reality” and clings to his hyper-rational falsity of faith. To ask the mountains and rocks to fall upon him “signifies to be defended against influx from heaven…” and “this is done by confirmations of evil by falsity, and of falsity from evil…” To hide from him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb amounts to complete closed-mindedness, until not Truth but only hyper-rationality is acknowledged. 
So Professor Pipe is in his little den, surrounded by worshipful grad students. He churns out manifestos about “White Male Crisis” and “delusional narrative.” But meanwhile horror continues to merge with reality. From undefined horror in the 1980s, to the 1990s, called “the conspiracy decade” by Jonathan Vankin, what had been vague slowly began to be seen. Then, in 2001, came terror-horror when a bizarre aircraft attack revealed the “smoke of Satan” at the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 (“9/11”). Part of this new terror-horror was that our own government lied about it.
Terror-horror was the “news” and the “news” was all about the terror-horror. Yet so-called “delusional narratives” impeded a complete bowing down before Satan. The hyper-rationality of Professor Pipe and his ilk kept being undermined by a continual influx of truth, totemized as “conspiracy theories” by little men (and women) hiding in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains.
“… for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12: 12). The terror-horror wasn’t working. The people were not bowing down. The wrath of the demons became desperate because they knew they had only a limited amount of time. A sign of this desperation was the devil launching an attack against a house of God. Last week, the devil took possession of a weak-souled entity and caused that person to enter the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Had Dylann Storm Roof been spiritually weakened by prescription drugs thereby allowing an easier demonic possession? In the 2014 movie, The Taking of Deborah Logan, demonic possession is linked to physical weakness and the “taking” of the very young and the elderly by malign discarnate spirits.
In Mexico, for what is believed to be the first time ever, an exorcism has been performed to chase demons from the entire nation. “According to a number of reports, the nationwide exorcism against demons blamed for crime and violence in Mexico was performed by Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez and other clergy, including a Spanish exorcist and demonologist, behind the close doors of the cathedral of San Luis Potosí.”  Here in the United States, however, islands of hyper-rationality have been scurrying about blaming inanimate objects such as guns and Confederate flags for what was obviously an attack by Satan against a house of God in Charleston, South Carolina. This demonic attack was truly a sign of the increased desperation of Satan. “… he knoweth that he hath but a short time” and “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.” (Revelation 12: 12)
