22 The text is presented as a dream, which is why John writes it in the past tense, and it moves quite logically from the release of great violence at the hands of an angry God to final redemption in chapters 19 through 22. Revelation is also a survivor narrative, for the text proves simultaneously the death and torment of the other and the salvation and redemption of the elect. There are, of course, many survivor narratives, and some can become paradigmatic of the hopeful for all time.

Violence is intrinsic to paranoia, even, I feel, ontological within it, at least in fantasy. ” Such violence, even in fantasy, is experienced by the paranoid, in other words, as self-protective. But, given the rigid dualistic world that the paranoid inhabits, to act against the perceived tormentor in the name of self-protection is to become a savior. Violence heals and redeems.
