Typically, when anything becomes too crystalized, it sets in motion the seeds of its own inevitable destruction.
Also, when power becomes too concentrated in too few hands, all the armies in the world can't maintain that condition.

Naturally, there cannot BE free will operational within a totally controlled, authoritarian state.
In other words, Shift happens. And if we notice the Leftist swings in the U.S. (Sanders, albeit not a full-out Leftist), U.K., this Pope, facets rising in Spain, facets rising in Greece, Iceland breaking from the clamps of the Big banks, campaigns to cut and run from U.K in Scotland, major anti-imperialism campaigns throughout much of South America it's clear that challenges to this damning and ecocide-driven status quo are mounting.
