Apocalyptic is from the word apocalypse, referring to the end of the world.

Apocalyptic fiction focuses on the end of civilization either through nuclear war, plague, or other global catastrophic risk.

Apocalyptic literature is a genre of religious writing centered on visions of the end of time.

Many apocalyptic stories focus on stories that are on the brink of the end of the world of the civilization. Post-apocalyptic fiction is set in a world or civilization after such a disaster. Also called 'Holocaust'

You see, evil men, the likes of whom have sought to enslave their fellow man since the dawn of creation, took America not by might or strength of arms, but by deception and guile.
Eric J. Martindale

The world is a goddamned evil place, the strong prey on the weak, the rich on the poor; I’ve given up hope that there is a God that will save us all. How am I supposed to believe that there’s a heaven and a hell when all I see now is hell.
Aaron B. Powell, Doomsday Diaries III: Luke the Protector
