The future world of happiness will be based on a totalitarian state, organized on the principle of total  obedience and submission, and "they will submit to us gladly and cheerfully . . . because it will save  them from the great anxiety and terrible agony they endure at present in making a free decision for  themselves." The church will even allow certain people to sin so long as they are obedient and  submissive. Man's happiness will be the happiness of children who have no responsibilities and no  choices; all questions will be answered by the church. The only person unhappy will be, ironically,  those few who will "guard the mystery." That is, only the members of the church who understand the  above concepts will suffer because they will be the "sufferers who have taken upon themselves the  curse of the knowledge of good and evil."
