One nicely-encapsulated expression of this changing reality is the “War On Terror.”
There you see the Piscean behemoth of the American military attempting to do something it has never before attempted: to do battle with something that is not a nation and which has no location.
Al Qaeda, et al, are a diverse group of people unified by common ideas and common hatreds rather than a common culture or common land. The military is probably correct in prophesying that these are the “wars of the future.”
Editorially, I would add that it seems to me that in fighting ideas, logic demands that eloquence and passion ought to play a more central role than cruise missiles and predator drones.
One can aim deeply-felt ideas at a non-local world, which is the true target here.
Missiles and drones are more problematic. They tend to hit people who were not engaged in any of the questions.
A parallel Aquarian Age development, and one that scares me personally more than terrorism, is the rise of the multi-national corporation.
These organizations too are fluid groups of people bound together by common ideas rather than common geography or DNA, and with no loyalty to Piscean Age nationality at all.
There is a cold calculation to them as well, which is another shadow-feature of Aquarius. Does Monsanto care about America? Does Novartis put Switzerland first? Do the huge oil companies care about poor people on the Louisiana coast—or marginalized Muslims in Jordan or Yemen?
