What Is It?
The YouTube video Dune: Why Create A God? by the YouTube channel, Quinn’s Ideas.
Here is the description for this video:
In this video, we will talk about the Purpose of “God” within the context of the Dune Saga.
In a sense, the Dune Saga is all about the concept of Godhood.
In the first book we see the apotheosis of Paul Atreides, as he uses the path laid out for him by the Bene Gesserit Missionaria Protectiva, to convince the Fremen that he is their prophesied savior.
Wielding the power of the Fremen Paul is able to avenge house Atreides and unseat the emperor of the known universe.
But in doing so he also entangled the throne to a fanatical religion, his Godhood would be invoked by others who would go on to commit terrible atrocities in his name.
The problem with this is that interpretation of God’s will cannot be easily monopolized.
A Government entangled with religion risks losing control over the very populace it seeks to subjugate, when that populace’s view of god shifts out of line with the standard established.

This was an even better video than I had expected, well done Quinn, I hope that more people will watch his videos like this.
He managed to cover things from the Dune books and real life in a way that blended together so well.
