Where are we "in" the Book of Mormon? Helaman 6? or...

Where are we in the Book of Mormon?

I'd place us somewhere between Helaman 6, where the Gadiantons had obtained "sole management of the government," but the people had not yet awakened to the "awful situation" -- and 3 Nephi 3, where the Gadiantons finally gave the people an ultimatum:

Lachoneus, the governor of the land, received an epistle from the leader and the governor of this band of robbers; and these were the words which were written, saying:

The Doomsday Clock To Tyranny


A New Doomsday Clock
How Many Minutes Are We From Total Tyranny?

History teaches us that the closer we get to Total Tyranny, the closer we get to the breakdown of society, pervasive poverty, slavery and war (including nuclear war).

My version of the clock is divided into twelve five-minute slices, and the hands sweep towards midnight as follows:
