In life, in human organised populations.
There are new things, new ways of life that have been discovered, taught and become the new way.
Sometimes, the foundations of the new ways are never for the benefit of the current living masses, but according to the founders, a way that they would love to see new humans take up and run with through to the future.
So, there’s always a small clique of men and women, who think up, research and roll out a new paradigm shift in human organisation. Mostly for their own interests first: to amass more wealth, power and control.
They are powerful owing to their money, brains and positions in places of power in high (mostly) and low places.
They change the course of history.
Then comes along a person who feels pity for the rest of the masses, sees the abrupt shift to be detrimental and feels mercy for the huge mass of humans who are disadvantaged by the new shift.
The person tries to reverse the shift through thinking, and research and most often seeks to terminate, rather abruptly the course of the new order.
Some of the methods require that the fathers of the new shift be terminated, but owing to their money and the considerable influence they still wield, it might take a very long time and their new shift ideology might take root.
It is okay to feel helpless, but some presidents have tried much.
Some have succeeded, and others have not.
Watch closely. It is unravelling every time when new regime take over.
Headless witch-hunt is how presidents get killed throughout history.
