The most convincing of the repeating periods I found was at the beginning of the current MOT period. Remember, the MOT is a 168-year period which is one fifteenth of the Prophetic Biblical Great Week and the latest completed period began on the summer solstice of 1848 and ended the day before the summer solstice of 2016. What characterized 1848?
Well, in the United States there was the California Gold rush. It was a period of great territorial expansion and furious economic activity. And what have we now, this first year of the new MOT 168-year period? In these first years of the new MOT, we have a stock market that has exploded by nearly 25%. Perhaps reductions in corporate tax rates will produce the effect of bringing enterprise back into the US; we've already seen a trend in repatriation of jobs in the US. Reducing the non competitiveness of the US corporate tax rate and repatriating untaxed international income can only increase economic activity after a decade of stagnation. Expansion? We shall see.
One MOT period ago in history is further instructive if we look at Europe. It was the age of Karl Marx and Friedrick Engles beginning in about 1845 and, stunningly, reaching a great fury of activity in 1848....the first year of the most recent MOT. In 1848, the fruits of Marx and Engles manifested in the "Year of Revolutions," "Spring of Nations," "Peoples Spring".... In that year over 50 countries were affected by revolution. Depending on your view of history, 1848 was the birth of freedom (as monarchy's were converted to democratic rule), the rise of socialism, the elevation of the worker....
Its not a matter of who was right or wrong 168+ years ago or now; its what happened and what is happening.
In 2016 and 2017, the US has seen the first credible socialist presidential candidate and his demonstrably wide following among the youthful population. In 2017, the US is experiencing an incredible stock market surge.
Broad correlations of history, arguably, repeating.
So, in my previous essays regarding 2028 I worried that the significance of 2028 or 12 years after the beginning of this newest MOT period, inferred the MOT defined period began in the wrong year. More than two years I've labored, comfortable that I'd correctly identified the repeating section of history. But why would twelve years after the beginning of the MOT signal such great importance?
1848 + 12 years = 1860
Running on a platform of abolition of slavery, Abraham Lincoln, arguably the founder of the Republican Party, was elected in the 19th quadrennial presidential election; in 1860.
Immediately thereafter in February 1861 seven agrarian (cotton) southern states seceded from the US to form the Confederacy. The US had geographically segregated along both economic lines (urban and industrial in the north and rural and agrarian in the south) and a racial caste structure.
And the Civil War was on, 168 + 12 years ago when "looking back" from 2028AD.
I'm not sure how history will manifest between now and the year 2028AD, the 12th year after the present MOT period began. Will it be the rise of socialism, after all, roughly half of the US population is dependent on some form of government assistance and less than half pay Federal income taxes. Will it be the segregation between states dominated by the superior delivery of government benefits (socialism) and the remainder. To me, its pretty obvious that such a segregation is occurring but will it continue? For another 12 years?
Will there be an attempted secession of states from the US; we see a Democrat secession movement in California. We see Republican movements in Texas and I seem to recall another state.
Will it be along racial lines given that racial compositions are changing; growing populations of non whites (African American, Latino, Muslim) that may segregate in states that offer superior delivery of government benefits?
All very controversial topics that I feel very uncomfortable even thinking about. But political correctness won't stop time as it marches towards the year 2028AD; a year which I believe Mr. Gann characterized with the sole word "terror," 168 years (one fifteenth the Prophetic Biblical Great Week) after the beginning of the Civil War in 1860, and John Dee's philosopher stone number 252 years (also one tenth the Prophetic Biblical Great Week) after the birth of the US in 1776:
