Today: – ”There is no use in arguing with those who are enforcing the state of abject oppression. ” – a reading from the I Ching

There is no use in arguing with those who are enforcing the state of abject oppression.  It is human nature not to want to give up fortune and power.  To this point, the nation has also rested comfortably in apathy.
The abuse of power must constantly be brought to light in its many forms.  When the opportunity arises, it is everyone’s duty to come together to overthrow the oppressors.  Replace them swiftly and completely.   Now that they are known for who they are, they are useless.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching

#47, line 2, #49
A Dead Sea, its Waters spent eons ago, more deadly than the desert surrounding it:
The Superior Person will stake his life and fortune on what he deeply believes.
Triumph belongs to those who endure.  Trial and tribulation can hone exceptional character to a razor edge that slices deftly through every challenge.  Action prevails where words will fail.
This is the realm of the Shaman.  You have exhausted every alternative, spent yourself completely, taxed body and mind beyond your former limits.
Survival and salvation lie beyond your reach now.
Only transcendence to a new existence — a higher plane of being — will see you through.  The Old You is just a dry husk.
You can’t return to it.  Metamorphosis is the only grace offered.  You can only return to your homeland as a New You.
Chained to the banquet table, a prisoner of his own rich tastes.  He offers prayer and sacrifice for delivery from desire.  When even the desire to be delivered has been cleansed, his prayers will have been answered.
A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly.  There is no negotiating with the Established Order.  Perfect timing is essential.  Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move.  Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely.  You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone.  You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent.  Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.
