Today: We have full on social and moral stagnation – I Ching

We have full on social and moral stagnation due to the illegitimate ascent of immoral and self-serving people to positions of power.  The bad news is that they will continue to follow their compulsion to serve and implement their pernicious agenda as long as it is allowed and until it is convenient to their self interest to change course.   The good news is that they are feeling some shame.   That bodes well for the long term.  But, nothing will come of it until the time is right for a change.  Righteous people can only stand by and witness the decay and destruction until the tides of the time change, when they can again exert influence and resolve never to let it happen again.  In the meantime, they must be content to remain sane and let the flow of the time take its course.
