As politics degenerates towards democratic anarchy,
So, by a counter principle, economics becomes
More important until, with the nadir of
Political degeneration in Marxist socialism, it becomes
All-important, symptomatic of the final decadence.
Contrary to this trend of the rise of the lowest
Towards a position of paramount importance,
Social Transcendentalism will champion
The expansion of religion at the expense of politics,
And to a point where economics would be
Firmly subordinated to theocratic requirement.
Instead of leading an independent life,
As it all-too-often does these days, economics
Would become the servant of religion,
While Social Transcendentalism strove to expand its base
And further Centrist civilization in the world generally
But the more theocratic parts of it in particular.
Ownership of the means of production
Would no longer be solely a plutocratic or even
A bureaucratic affair, but would pass, duly transmuted, to
The meritocracy, who alone would be responsible
For the allocation of funds, with particular emphasis
On meritocratic affairs, though with
Due deference to bureaucracy, albeit a minimum one.
