When man was great on the earth after the flood, he tried building a tower to heaven. His pride was great, and God confused the languages of men. The chaos broke them, and the tower was abandoned.

God, through his Providence, guides the whole world in its affairs. This Great Hysteria may be another case of the same sort of thing. We are a proud civilization, proud even of our sins. We even dedicate a month to the celebration of that pride.

The Great Hysteria will continue, like Nebechudnezzar’s madness, until He sees fit to end it.
