“Book of Mormon: Hope in Ether’s Coming from Captivity”

In preparation for what is to come (see my previous article “American Prison/ Concentration/ Detention Camps: For LDS/ Mormons, Freedom-Lovers, and Debtors?” by grego ‎), I found the following verses about the great prophet Ether very hopeful:

Ether 11:14 And it came to pass that Ethem did execute judgment in wickedness all his days; and he begat Moron. And it came to pass that Moron did reign in his stead; and Moron did that which was wicked before the Lord.
15 And it came to pass that there arose a rebellion among the people, because of that secret combination which was built up to get power and gain; and there arose a mighty man among them in iniquity, and gave battle unto Moron, in which he did overthrow the half of the kingdom; and he did maintain the half of the kingdom for many years.
16 And it came to pass that Moron did overthrow him, and did obtain the kingdom again.
17 And it came to pass that there arose another mighty man; and he was a descendant of the brother of Jared.
18 And it came to pass that he did overthrow Moron and obtain the kingdom; wherefore, Moron dwelt in captivity all the remainder of his days; and he begat Coriantor.
19 And it came to pass that Coriantor dwelt in captivity all his days.
20 And in the days of Coriantor there also came many prophets, and prophesied of great and marvelous things, and cried repentance unto the people, and except they should repent the Lord God would execute judgment against them to their utter destruction;
21 And that the Lord God would send or bring forth another people to possess the land, by his power, after the manner by which he brought their fathers.
22 And they did reject all the words of the prophets, because of their secret society and wicked abominations.
23 And it came to pass that Coriantor begat Ether, and he died, having dwelt in captivity all his days.

Ether was born in captivity. He was the son of Coriantor, who was a captive his entire life; who was the son of Moron, who was a captive for part of his life. Moron was a wicked ruler who was overthrown and made captive by a wicked man at the head of a secret society/ secret combination/ [Gadianton robber].

So, if in the future you get put in a camp for captives, it might be possible to not only survive, but even to have a prophet as a descendant.
