God keeps telling me throughout the Old Testament and New Testament, Empire doesn’t work. I look at history, that seems right to me. There was never an empire that didn’t say: “We are here forever” and there never was one that didn’t go eventually. I’m getting 2 vectors, one from human evolution backed by cosmic evolution, the other by biblical tradition and they seem to be pointing in the same direction, and that’s a heck of a coincidence
