A caveat about Uranus. It has a cycle of 84 years so we are in resonance with events of the early 30s, to be exact 1932. What happened during this period? The rise of authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictators. Let’s not forget that these authoritarians didn’t come to power through military coops – these scary authoritarians such as Hitler and Mussolini were elected officials. However on the otherwise of Uranus – here in America we had FDR.
We are currently witnessing these two energies replay themselves in the corporatist, authoritarian alpha male Donald Trump – leading one side of this schism. And the hopeful, we can come make it better side of the messages of Bernie Sanders and to a lesser degree Hillary Clinton. The New Deal that FDR offered up is being echoed in Sanders. Hillary has plainly told us, everything is basically OK – not much to see here let’s move the dot up the number line.
But everything is not fine. We are in a power vacuum. People are scared, lost, overworked, humiliated, being poisoned by their water and the rest of their environment. The strong man (or woman) is a comfort to the masses in times like these – post depression, war rumbling, uncertain future.
We want someone to take care of us.
So did the Germans and the Italians. Let’s not repeat their mistake. Let’s repeat our glorious history when we picked compassion and coming together as a country, let’s go the way of empathy and togetherness – I beg this country to lean left – as hard left as we can.
It is our only hope.
