I have written about The Fourth Turning before. This is a generational analysis which explores the processes of change that we are now experiencing. In The Fourth Turning & War of the Worlds, the author lays out five possibilities for different results to the end of this saeculum (age, aeon, generation, lifetime; for Romans, a period of 90 years; for Etruscans, a period of 110 years).
“This Fourth Turning could mark the end of man. It could be an omnicidal Armageddon, destroying everything, leaving nothing. If mankind ever extinguishes itself, this will probably happen when its dominant civilization triggers a Fourth Turning that ends horribly. For this Fourth Turning to put an end to all this would require an extremely unlikely blend of social disaster, human malevolence, technological perfection and bad luck.
Or the Fourth Turning could simply mark the end of the Millennial Saeculum. Mankind, modernity, and America would all persevere. Afterward, there would be a new mood, a new High, and a new Saeculum. America would be reborn. But, reborn, it would not be the same.”
The point this article makes is that we are living in extremely dangerous times that will end up either destroying us, or changing America into something very different.
Take a look at the civic decay America has witnessed over the past two years.
The Progressive Democrats have been engaging in violent behavior for more than two years. They are out of control on college campuses, violently suppressing free speech. They march as mobs disrupting lives in restaurants, stores, and at peoples’ homes. These politicians urge the their followers to kick their opponents, form mobs, and act uncivilly. You get none of this kind of behavior from the right side of the aisle.
Disorder reigns throughout the world. In the Middle East, Asia, South America, and Europe upheaval reigns everywhere. There is a bloodlust set loose in the world. A spiritual warfare is taking place in America and elsewhere.
The forces of Conservatism must return us to the Christian moral foundations upon which America was founded. Pray for our leaders to lead us back to our Judaeo/Christian roots.
