In its original sense- Milton referred to Pandemonium as a release of demons upon a region, or the entire earth. The result is a bunch of money grabbers attempting to make money off people’s misery and discomfort, right? No- actually, the release of demons visits the earth with crazy behavior and activity. I mean, here in the US – we are going to be irradiated because our underarm deodorant is destroying the ozone, the earth is going to burn up from CO2 gas, and we have P Trump conniving with Russians, right? … and then, an impeachment for no reason- not the usual stuff for Congress, and now – seemingly normal people freaking out over the flu for no reason. Will a mass of people dash into the ocean to drown themselves in the near future?
We also have holy men falling out of windows, engaged in unnatural acts and stoked with drugs. And the Pope seems to not be Catholic. Are there Demons? the Roman who built up a marvelous nation-state, too, suffered from irrationality historians have attributed to lead, that eventually destroyed all they built up. Was it really the lead? They allowed barbarians, people with beards who didn’t cut their hair and had tattoos, to infiltrate their society and thoroughly corrupt it.
Today, most people I know cut their hair and shave- but I do not know for how long.
