LESS GOOD BUT STILL GOOD
Just as peasants in a traditional feudal system
Were less bad than the aristocracy
But still bad, so, conversely, the meritocracy
In a revolutionary Centrist system would be
Less good than the superfolk but still good,
And therefore not identifiable with tyranny
Or its attenuated bourgeois successor
In ... parliamentary government.
Rather, they would be as angels to gods,
And one could speak of guidance or administration
In connection with their serving duties
Vis-à-vis the saved majority.
Of course, the Leader would be
No-less distinct from the meritocracy
Than (was) the Ruler from the aristocracy,
Since entitled to a separate divine status,
Only one whose derivation
Is subjective rather than objective,
Corresponding to the Holy Spirit
Rather than to the Father,
Since devolving upon the Second Coming,
And hence constituting a Messianic sovereignty
More good, if anything, than 'the Good'.
And yet, it is the People, not the Leader
Or his closest followers,
Who must evolve towards pure spirit;
For the Leader will be complete in himself.
