2 Minutes to Midnight by Iron Maiden is one of the most brilliant and greatest heavy-metal songs of all-time.   It is also a nod to the moment in history in September of 1953 when the doomsday clock reached the dire postition of two minutes to midnight. Midnight representing mankind destroying itself.  In 1953 things didn’t look good for our long-term future on this planet, the USA & the USSR we’re testing massive H-bombs and threatening to wipe one another off the face of the earth.  It was closest we’ve ever got to midnight until today.   That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it is once again two minutes to midnight.

From Washington Post 1/25/2018 article:   –

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists advanced the symbolic Doomsday Clock a notch closer to the end of humanity Thursday, moving it ahead by 30 seconds after what the organization called a “grim assessment” of the state of geopolitical affairs.

It’s 2 minutes to midnight – for real! 1/25/18

The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed,
The glamor, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain,
But don’t you pray for my soul anymore.
Two minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom.
Two minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb.

Enought said.
