The world is the Titanic.  Five minutes ago, the Titanic hit the iceberg.  A lot of people are still unaware of the collision. A lot of people felt something but are going on with their business as usual.  The Captain etc (i.e. the power elite) know of the collision and are just assessing the damage.  VERY FEW PEOPLE know the ship is sinking and NOTHING will save it.
