A different kind of spring cleaning


It is not the annual ritual of providers — who nowadays can even be Hillary Clinton, a woman running to become President of the United States, because she wants to be the champion of everyday Americans [1] — but homemakers — who nowadays are definitely not Bill Clinton, a man who after leaving the White House, has continued to be active in the public sphere, touring the world, writing books, and campaigning for Democrats, including his wife [2] — in the springtime have held the practice of thoroughly cleaning their house, a practice colloquially known as spring cleaning.

While neither Hillary nor Bill Clinton have ever functioned as homemakers to their families, the Governor of the UMMOA® [3, 4], who today is also the Guru of GEO [5, 6], is involved from time to time in a kind of spring cleaning ritual. It just doesn't happen more or less regularly each spring, and it usually happens every four or six years, not every single year.

This ritual is more like a kind of periodic reaping, after a time of sowing. The sowing is the thinking, theorising, modelling and testing. The reaping is the field full of the crop of new wisdom and science.

As the result of a long period of sowing, the book, Cesidian Political Science: The Rise of Polities, and the (Un)planned Fall of Empires, will be published in a few months.

If you are thinking that a book, with such a title as the one above, is destined to become part of a new or old canonical list of the future, some list of the most influential books, or of books that changed the world, I can say in all humility that you are probably right.

I have discovered too many things in roughly the past six years, especially concerning true societies and true polities, and what I have discovered is rigourous, and can no longer be conveniently ignored by scholars, policy makers, and analysts working in different social sciences.

In a speech in Cape Town in June 1966, Robert Kennedy said:
There is a Chinese curse which says "May he live in interesting times". Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history [7].
Keep breathing, and stay tuned to the new "Cesidian Political Science" website below!

Robert Kennedy was right. We are indeed living interesting times, and they are both hard times for those who are good, and a blessing in disguise.
