Pillars of PowerPosted: April 13, 2016
The reconstruction of society through politics will never precede a moral shift in the individual, and since political power is the associated strength of a majority impersonate in one, so tyranny too, tends to be the effective force, if not the numerical, of a majority, represented by the authority of one.
Ultimately, the duality becomes clear, that power over mankind is both the representation of itself and the forcible control over it, even under the promoted and popular system of democracy which should allow discovery and registry of opinions. All this bearing in mind that it has thus far been impossible to ascertain what a nation collectively desires, let alone show that any leader or law can adequately represent a people’s desire.
However, a great shepherd will, even with the help of his colley and his crook, still rely upon personal perspective. But it need not mean he does not regard differentiation as the law of growth, nor does he fail to recognise revolution as the first, constant and inexorable law of nature, and ultimately the inherent property of time.
