It is from [the] no-man’s land of terror that the world is now managed… This is what the equilibrium of terror means: The world is held collectively responsible for the order that reigns there – if anything were to come dangerous close to infringing this order, the world would have to be destroyed.

This… equilibrium of terror is present on the infinitesimal and individual level: we are held responsible for the order that rules in us. If this order came to be seriously threatened, we are psychologically programmed to destroy ourselves
