The word "Leviathan" refers to an old mythology word meaning 'chaos,''unrest,' or 'rebelliousness.'

Social scientists have borrowed the term to discuss various confusion allegories.

In the world of psychiatry, "Leviathan" can be casually or more seriously be used to consider disturbing concepts such as wrath, depression-induced ritual apathy, or culturally constructed rage.

Does this streamlining suggest that historic incidents of civilization distortion such as familiarity bias and institutional entrapment are evidence of psychological worry?

When we think of transgressive social and wartime tortures such as witch burning, homosexual adultery, and tickling someone to death, are these self-destructive mistakes useful metaphors for the academic concept of "Leviathan?"

Do these figurative considerations illuminate the awkward marketability of the appropriately-titled fear-themed Hollywood (USA) science-fiction movie "Leviathan" (1989)?

Is the AntiChrist simply a death symbol?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
