Oppression and tyranny emerge in human civilization and become the dominant force during the winter season, only to be knocked back by the appearance of a Springtime in human history. The Prophets of God came and freed the people from the oppressive State-like institutions created by the ego-driven. That is the cycle.The State-like institutions created by the ego-driven interpreters and the ego-driven interventionists resist the flow of knowledge, extract the wealth of the people, undermine their liberties, and try to institute the false-gods of statism.
It is easy to discern the fact that the grossly unethical actions of the State are obvious and all around us and that must mean that we are living in the Springtime. That is the time when the great potency of newness awakens the latency of winter. The signs of growth - and the discarding of debris - should be a harbinger of joy to everyone, even the slaves of the State-like institutions!
At first growth the dead and decayed stalks are all that are visible but hidden is the universal and new sprouting. A shower here and a shower there, unpredictable exactly where and its duration, combined with the fertility of the desire for freedom by all people and combined with the heat of the rays of knowledge radiating with great intensity, quickly makes it obvious what is happening. The State is obviously obsolete and useless.
These are exciting times!!!
