Dune: Why Create A God?

Dune: Why Create A God?

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.

Muad’Dib…Final Speech…

Muad’Dib…Final Speech…

What is it?

The YouTube video Muad’Dib…Final Speech… by the YouTube channel Paul Atreides, here is the description for this video:

Everywhere is peace…Everywhere… except in the heart of Muad’Dib.

Who is it that calls for Muad’Dib?

Help us, Muad’Dib.

Muad’Dib’s words are the wind.

They vanish…
Like water on the sand.

I’ll give you Muad’Dib’s words.

I’ll rub your faces in them!

I am the voice
from the wilderness…

And I bring you a warning.

The water we spread upon the desert
has become blood.

Blood… upon the land
which was once clean and pure.

We have provoked the desert…
Forsaken its ways.

We have succumbed to mindless ritual…

And seductive ceremony…

Placed faith in those who crush dissent…

Enrich themselves with power…

Commit atrocity.

All in the name of righteousness!

All in the name…

Of Muad’Dib.

We have fouled the nest…

And it is killing us.

But I have seen another path…

A golden path-

The path Muad’Dib could not take.

I have stood upon the sand…

And I have seen a beast rise up.

And upon the head of that beast…

Is the name of salvation…

Come to spill water upon the sand…

Come to lead us back…

To a dry and thirsty land.

Only one blasphemy remains…

And that blasphemy…

Is Alia!

Forgive me…

Sister.

…….
……
……

It’s in your hands now…

Son.
