Antichrist totalitarian dystopian state of material values will come



Fyodor Dostoyevsky : writer
The Legend of the Great Inquisitor, which is the part of the novel, predicts the coming of Antichrist who would seduce humanity for sharing materialistic values and abandoning spiritual and ethical. Traditional christian values would be tempered by classical Renaissance humanism ideas in the context of victory of individualism and egoism.
The prediction is true if we consider the victory of communistic ideas after revolution, that tried to introduce materialistic values in Russia. Also materialistic values are becoming more popular in the World. Novel also valuable for prophetic value in describing and explaining "Russian soul" and national character of intelligentsia.
