New Book changing the way people view the past, present, and prepare for the future.

Every culture goes through predictable cycles of abundance and catastrophic “resets.” Eric Wilson, the director of the Kentucky 9/12 Project and former leader in the Tea Party movement has released his latest book “Cultural Cycles” and warns the United States is on the brink of its next reset, with potentially disastrous results – and he backs it up with data.

Owensboro, KY –  "Cultural Cycles" is a book written by Eric Wilson who is also a professional business forecaster for a local international company and worked in the field of analytics for over twenty years.   Through an intriguing mixture of historical acumen and big-data analytics - Cultural Cycles examines the cyclical nature of history and applies it to the United States today. Basing his observations on repeating eras and cycles from the seventeenth century to the present, Wilson reveals that the United States’ next cultural reset is imminent and posits what the consequences will be for a nation already divided. 

“This book was the coming together of my professional life and personal passions where I use history and analytics and most of all the readers own intuition and logic to explain the seemly rhythmic nature of history,” said Eric Wilson.  “I wanted it to be easy to understand but thought provoking and maybe even a clarion call as well.”

Eric’s book is a fascinating, easily understood exploration of history and analytics, Cultural Cycles uses practical reasoning and intuitive insight to reveal what many sense—the next great turn of the wheel of history.  His book demonstrates a predictable cycle of historic extremes from periods of abundance and growth to cultural crises, or “resets,” marked by disastrous social and political upheaval. Each cycle, per his calculations, is approximately eighty-two years and separated into four distinct eras called “Family”, “Community”, “Self”, and “Guardian.”  At its worst, during the final era comes a reset that can destroy a culture—and any nations strong enough to survive such events are forever changed.

New Book Set to Hit Stores This Fall - Cultural Cycles by Eric Wilson

message from the Author Eric Wilson:

After five years, I have recently completed my latest book of an in depth look at the Cycles that move a culture and the next looming reset. Stay tuned for the new book coming this fall “Cultural Cycles: A Story of the History of the United States - Why It Repeats Itself, and the Next Looming Reset”.  This book uses history and analytics and most of all the readers own intuition and logic to explain the seemly rhythmic nature of history. We answer many of the questions of why various well-known historic events took place when they did and what we might be able to expect in the future.  After extensive research of historical patterns, I not only show how and why history does repeat itself but also provide insight to how America may be on the verge of the next cataclysmic reset. 


Pave way for better choices in the future by voting third party for president now

The presidential election comes down to this: On one side a vulgar old man and the other a criminal with a third-party candidate who thinks the Middle East is Pennsylvania. All that said, this year for the first time, I feel I must speak out and make an endorsement.
While a case can be made that either major party candidate is so egregious and dangerous that you must vote for the other, I am not recommending you vote against anyone. I admit we do not have a single qualified candidate for president running in any party, but there is one clear choice. My endorsement is not a vote against a person but the opportunity to vote for someone or something.
As the electorate, we should be tired of the argument of the lesser of two evils. Election cycles have become more and more polarized and for far too long everyone seems to be voting against someone else. This year is no exception and few people can take an honest assessment of their options and say they really like their candidate, but it is that they just hate the opponent.
And the two major parties know this, pitting one side against the other and motivating their constituents in voting out of fear instead of support. No matter whose side you think is here to save you, one thing is for certain, neither party is about ideology or principle but instead maintaining its own power.
It is a worn out saying but unfortunately all too true — the system is broken. We are just cogs in the two-party machine and it is so big now, it believes it can afford a few loose screws and still keep running. Elections no longer reflect a majority of our morals and principles. We are at a point where the most organized majority of the minority gets elected.
This is why we need strong third parties to create stronger minorities that may align to your principles and values. And more than a few people are beginning to agree with this sentiment.
The Founding Fathers were vehemently against a national party system, especially a two-party model. The first three presidents — George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson — delivered strong cautionary words against the threat of political parties.
People agree, and unlike what some in the media make the politicians’ message out to be, this is the true populist message. Just last year a 2015 Gallup poll cited 60 percent of the respondents said they wanted new political parties. Recently over 40 percent self-identify as independents and not strongly aligned with either party. After this year’s gutter politics and the horrible immoral choices, these numbers are sure to be even higher.
So how is that we have progressed to a society that can choose from more than 24 different brands of toilet paper but only two candidates for president? Because we continue to buy into the narrative of fear, and when we continue to vote for the establishment parties it guarantees we keep the current system. This is why this year we have the perfect opportunity that a few loose screws together may derail the entire apparatus.
Sorry, spoiler alert, but we have a representative republic and in Kentucky our eight electoral votes are almost guaranteed to go for the Republican nominee. No matter whom you support, Kentucky will go red in the presidential election, with or without your vote. But your vote does count and you can make a difference.
This is why I am urging you not to vote against any candidate or for any politician, but that you break the system and cast your vote for a third party for president.
Locally everyone has a responsibility and honor to vote and must elect local and state candidates you do believe in and are excited about. For president we also have a principle and duty to make a difference and vote for opportunity and change.
One or 2 percent in the presidential election in Kentucky will not change the Electoral College vote but it can have a huge impact back here at home. One or two percent for a third-party candidate can create easier ballot access for future elections, help elevate issues into the mainstream political dialogue, provide more choices and make public more opinions.
Instead of a choice between the lesser of two evils, my endorsement is a vote for a stronger, more relevant third party today so hopefully we can have the opportunity to vote for the lesser of three or four evils in the future.

2016’s resemblance to 1937

We have begun to hear the drumbeat that we may be on the verge of another 2008. Truth is, if you really want to better understand where we may be heading, you might want to look back even earlier: It’s time to party likes it’s 1937.
Illustration on the reset cycle of intersecting government overreach and societal apathy by Alexander Hunter/The Washington TimesThe stock market has started 2016 with its worst performance ever. This has provoked a bandwagon of prognosticators to come out to foretell why this is the next recession. My question is, what took them so long? Looking at cycles, it was predicted, and I wrote about this downturn for 2016 more than three years ago. What you should be asking — and even more frightening — is what the cycles predict is coming next.
Donald Trump is correct that our country is disappearing — he just misses the mark on why and understanding that it cannot be fixed by his ego. Pundits and politicians add fuel to the problems, and benefit from the chaos and instability. People like George Soros and Andrew Roberts from the Royal Bank of Scotland feed the narrative to feed their wallets but don’t see past the next collapse.
Looking at economic indicators and current conditions confirms a recession is inevitable. It is not that the experts are entirely wrong about 2016; it is just that they fail to see a larger cycle that may exist and the bigger problem that may be looming. If you want to understand what may be coming and learn from history, we need to go further back than 2008 and first look at 1937.
We can begin with not a recession but the Great Depression, which engulfed our economy until the early 1930s. The recovery in the four years after Franklin Roosevelt took office in 1933 was incredibly rapid. Annual real gross domestic product (GDP) growth averaged more than 9 percent. Unemployment fell from 25 percent to 14 percent. By 1937, production and wages had regained their pre-1929 Great Depression levels.
The economy faltered in the spring of 1937 and tanked in the autumn. Unemployment jumped from 14.3 percent to 19.0 percent. Manufacturing output fell by 37 percent. Real GDP fell 11 percent, and industrial production fell 32 percent. Producers reduced their expenditures on durable goods and inventories declined, making it one of the worst U.S. recessions in the 20th century.
At the time of that recession, there were large imbalances of power and indifference was rampant. Liberties deteriorated not because of FDR but because a culture that accepted it. The period started with a major economic collapse; the disaster elicited a mix of apathy and anger kept at bay by paralysis. There began the general feeling that the culture was heading into peril and things built to an ultimate climax in 1941.
The actual lessons of Roosevelt’s recession are much different than many of the history books. The 1937 dip was not the product of tight fiscal and monetary policy but of excessive government regulation and loose monetary policy; but more importantly a reflection of the culture, people and attitudes of that time.
Perhaps the experts could have looked 80 years earlier to the Panic of 1857, a time that the nation was in uncertainty and government was driving policies that led to the apex of disaster in the 1861 Civil War — a war that was the bloodiest conflict in U.S. history, claiming more than 2 percent of the population.
Perhaps they would have seen similarities another 85 years prior with the credit crisis of 1772. The majority was not taking up arms against the crown but instead was uninterested, angry or paralyzed with fear and subordinate to power. Ultimately, the times saw a foreign government that overregulated, and drove social and economic conditions that exploded in 1775 with the shot heard around the world and the Revolutionary War.
The prognosticators could have even learned looking just 82 years before at the seven ill years and crisis of the 1690s that led to the War of the Spanish Succession. Eighty years before that was the downturn of economies of the 1610s that ultimately begot the English civil war, which claimed 3 percent of the population.
We can go back over 400 years and see this same pattern play out every 80-85 years. In 1937, the culture in the United States and the world was primed for social, economic and geopolitical problems. Not because it would be a repeat of eight years prior but because liberties continued shrinking and centralized power and apathy were growing. In those days of 1937, Americans saw unprecedented overreach of government, increased taxes and stagnant growth, unrest and instability abroad, and an underestimation of potential problems. The climax was not the recession of 1937 but the years that followed that enveloped us in World War II, which claimed more than 400,000 U.S. casualties.
Almost exactly 82 years later, we wake up now to a shift in culture and attitudes that are repeating history. It’s not because it is a repeat of 2008 but because we not only do not learn from the past, but through the generations we relive it. Many of the same phenomena and sentiments of 1937 are playing out today and we are heading full-steam toward similar consequences.
Unfortunately, we have already paved the “road to serfdom,” and as many fight to change policies and institutions to preserve liberty, one fears — and facts are beginning to support — that the cycle has progressed past the point of no return.

History is repeating itself, and I am less worried about the recession of 2016 than I am the reset of 2020.
