Pluto has a 249 year return. Think about this, last time Pluto was in this placement a series of revolutions ignited the world and led to the Enlightenment. We are now about 10 years before the Boston T-Party period, when English oligarchs were being paid to keep the colony under British rule. Sound familiar? This time the oligarchs are corporations that own our political leaders. What we are seeing now is the beginning of a revolution. The rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are two reactions to this undercurrent. The urge of some to follow Donald Trump is born out of the anger at the system. However it is sadly misplaced. Those who don’t understand the complicated underpinnings of this current oligarchy see the demise of our country as a problem created by government. It is actually a problem created by industry who now control government. Their slow and steady usurping of our political system has been in play since the Reagan years and culminated in the Citizen’s United verdict.
Those who are supporting Bernie are responding to this same undercurrent but understand that the problem is money in politics and a need to cut down corporate power. It’s interesting to note that Mussolini called Fascism-Corporatism – isn’t this the message of Donald Trump? I’ve heard he even tweeted Mussolini recently. Now is the time for real change. We can either do it peacefully or we can do it through war. I hope for Bernie to create a movement to take back our political system by engaging us in the process not in fighting and losing blood and treasure.
