Control of the process is put in the hands of an appointed few, who will have an authority beside the Constitution, and the Constitution is not to be enforced. Or they will say that they are enforcing those parts of the Constitution which fit their “preferred future.”
Authority is to be centralized and concentrated, and decision-making is to be done by people who will be appointed, rather than elected.
The changes are so enormous and as to be blinding in their enormity, yet they are vague in their reality.
They come not out of the Word of God but from the vision of the leader.
