Wilson's Tinfoil Apocalypse

E. O. Wilson - Wikiquote: "“The real problem of humanity is the following: we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology. And it is terrifically dangerous, and it is now approaching a point of crisis overall.”"
Of course the crisis really hit its stride as far back as the Cuban Missile Crisis.

And speaking of apocalypse, my earlier reference didn't do it justice so a redux:
"Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad" -- Longfellow
