Thoughts On Where We Are, and Where We're Going
#23
During the last Fourth Turning the new order did not begin to take shape until the Second World War, more accurately the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-43. That was like thirteen years into the Fourth Turning (if you accept the Wall Street Crash as the catalyst, which I do).

For example; In Australia I have not noticed any new order starting to emerge yet, rather the old order has been continuing to decay for some time. Therefore; I don’t expect to see a new order start emerging at least in my region of the world until around maybe 2020-2022. Concerning the presidency of Donald Trump, I don’t believe much of what he has achieved will last beyond his presidency. Especially if he is successfully impeached from office.

Because the whole Trump “Make America Great Again” agenda is an appeal to go back to the past, this is same I observe from all these Nationalist Conservative and Populist movements which have come to political prominence in recent years. These people I predict will be the losing not winning side of this Fourth Turning like the Tories were in the Revolutionary War, Confederates in the Civil War and the Fascist Axis powers in the Second World War. This Fourth Turning reminds me a little of the Revolutionary War one at least in the Thirteen Colonies, which was a civil war with neither side being what could be considered wholly "good" or "bad".

Perhaps the blueprint for this new order is coming from people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who recently won a Democratic Primary to a Congressional District and the Democratic Socialists of America she represents. Also the British Labour Party under the leader of Jeremy Corbyn as well and particularly the Momentum group in the Labour Party which were instrumental to getting elected as leader.

I am constantly reminded lately that history, rather it rhymes.
