Isaiah’s and Micah’s vision of nations voluntarily “beating sword into plowshare . ”). Some involve active human participation, some predict a supernatural event for which humans should prepare. But even in the case of the most passive forms of apocalyptic thinking, the demands can be radical, like Jesus’ demand that we love our enemies and forgive seven times seventy. Apocalypse thinking is, by nature, totalistic. The central role of apocalyptic expectations in activating millennialism, and therefore making it “visible,” has obscured the distinction between apocalyptic and millennial.

Demotic millennialism emphasizes voluntarism: the inhabitants of the messianic world act justly not from fear but by choice, and thus there will be no need for government, anarchy. Here the sword and spear, weapons of predatory aristocratic dominion, become plow and pruning hook, tools of honest labor; here commoners enjoy the fruits of their labor and share freely with their neighbors (Micah 4:4): Liberté, égalité, fraternité. Demotic millennialism can take a variety of actual forms, from particularistic to universalistic.
