The Sealed Portion p. 211 vs 58-59
And because Satan enticeth the children of men with the lusts of the flesh, then the only way that he can control them is by the flesh. And for this reason he hath set up a great armies and navies and means of force throughout the earth. For it is only by fear that the leaders of the people maintain their control over the children of men.
And without the fear of the sword, they would have no power. And because of the sword, the leaders are able to control the people and subject them to laws that protect their riches and their glory, which riches and glory they receive from the people.
