Those who understand little about theocracy oppose
The centripetal principle of centro-complexification
With the centrifugal principle of decentralization,
Commensurate with the degeneration of politics
From communist and/or liberal to radical Marxist levels,
And the furtherance of participatory democracy.
Instead of encouraging an evolutionary progression
From the Many to the Few or, preferably, the One,
Such political degenerates favour
A devolutionary regression from the Few to the Many,
The centre to the periphery, which is to say, from
Government to themselves, politicians to people.
Little do they realize what degree of chaos
This would engender, though the poet W.B. Yeats
Had some inkling of it when, in The Second Coming,
He wrote of 'Mere anarchy' being 'loosed upon the world'
In consequence of things falling apart from 'the centre',
The sort of situation that would doubtless appeal to
An undisciplined mob, but hardly to men of good sense!
And yet, the 'centre' to which Yeats was alluding in
The above-mentioned poem wasn't the ultimate Centre,
Identified by me with Social Transcendentalism,
But, rather, a bourgeois democratic one,
And it is perhaps inevitable that before
A new and higher centre can be created,
The old one has to be undermined
Through centrifugal action, in accordance with
The oscillatory and relative progression of
Evolution towards a more absolutist goal.
What one must ensure is that such centrifugal action
Doesn't get completely out-of-hand,
Else it may become its own master
And not the unconscious servant of a superior end!
For, eventually, there must be a new centripetal principle,
Leading to the utmost centro-complexification of
A civilization superior, in every respect, to
The previous one, a truly theocratic civilization,
In which sovereignty is vested in the Centre,
In the person of the Leader, who becomes
The executive hub around which the various
Administrative departments of government
Revolve, in deference to his overall will.
In such a civilization, there can be only
One leader, one party, and one people - namely,
The people capable of theocratic upgrading
And allegiance; though, eventually, there is no reason
Why other such peoples shouldn't come under
A similar system within a supra-national framework of
Uniform ideological identification, so that
Centro-complexification goes ahead
On a world-wide basis under the aegis of
A unified regulatory body.
We cannot, in this overly nationalistic age, expect
Much progress towards supra-national unity just yet.
But we can certainly look towards a time
When, with the development of a more
Transcendent consciousness, nations draw closer to
That ultimate centro-complexification of global unity
In the most radical theocratic allegiance.
