The scenarios that are much more plausible are daunting and frightening: climate change, nuclear warfare, pandemics, scrambles for water and food. That is because such scenarios are already part of our historical lifeworld. Rather than suggesting a future apocalypse, they embody a rolling apocalypse. We already live with images of the end: blown-off mountaintops in West Virginia, dried-up marshes in southern Iraq, knocked-down neighborhoods in Beijing, and the constant disappearance of non-human species of life.

Crisis has invaded and become caught up with ongoing history: “the older, sharply predictive apocalypse, with its precise identification, has been blurred; eschatology is stretched over the whole of history, the End is present at every moment . . ”(Kermode, [1966] 2000: 26). As crises multiply and converge, crisis-as-episode begins to evolve into crisis-as-final-destruction-of-the-lifeworld. The far horizon of history draws nigh. Each particular crisis begins to forebode the larger end. Nothing is more routine than a crisis of capitalism.
