The outcome he sees in the back, in the past century, the idea of great Britain, which should rule the world, wipe personality in the face of great public purpose, to the rejection of the "harmful" freedom of speech. Further Wells models fantastic situation — during a seance Mr. Parham and millionaire Bussy Woodcock, means which Parham wants to use his political activity, he saw the same picture — the picture of the world after Mr. Parama was possessed by a messenger of the planet Mars the Lord of the Spirit — the spirit of power and order.
