Anacyclosis. It’s a fancy word that is easier to understand by calling it “the cycle of collapse”. And it is the main reason why we need a new government. Anacyclosis is the cyclical nature of governments. It tells us that if we start with democratic systems, They will fall to socialism. But socialistic countries will inevitably fall to tyrannical systems. Finally, tyrannical systems will eventually be overthrown to democratic systems. Rinse. Repeat. It’s an endless cycle of government throughout every nation’s history.
I’m no stranger to writing on this subject. I have two articles published just recently going into the cycle’s processes in-depth:
If we study the history of governments from this macro perspective, we always see that same trend. The government falls to the next form given enough time. Some nation’s resist it for longer for various reasons (time, size, structure, population), but all have or will succumb to it eventually.
Each system that we currently have has intrinsic downfalls that prevent it from being a sustainable government. Whether it’s capitalistic democracy, socialism, capitalistic authoritarian regimes… they all have the same connection to the cycle. And they all have obvious failings:
- Problems With Democracy – Essay on Why Republics Fall Part 1
- 55 Reasons Why Socialism Sucks
- Communism Is Genocide – Survival In The Killing Fields
- The list is endless, truthfully.
Over time, any modern government type will collapse and descend into the next cyclical form.
Because of this, the current types of government systems can’t stop it. They can only contribute to it. We can keep arguing between the pros/cons of each, but they’ll all fall with enough time. The people fighting between capitalism, socialism, or communism are choosing different fingers on the same hand that chokes them.
You could eventually get a socialist government, but it won’t last. You could eventually get a smaller, respectable republic. But it won’t last either.
I hashed out most of the reasons for anacyclosis in the above articles. But a few interesting ones: Republics fall because of their feelings on cultural control. Socialism and capitalism both suffer from degeneracy and degradation of society. In nearly every form of government, partisanship takes control. Fascism is just, uh, terrible.
This in-fighting also exists between capitalist political parties. The fight between socialism and capitalism, the fight against fascism and tyranny, even democrat versus republican – all temporary wins. Long-term they will all lose. It is the nature of all modern forms of government.
The cycle of collapse depends on us using these available government systems. We couldn’t continue the cycle if we weren’t using the same governmental systems required of the cycle. So why don’t we make a new one? A system specifically designed with a resistance to this cycle in mind? Let’s take what the ancient philosophers have said will prevent it, what history has proven works at delaying it, the best components of all modern forms, and combine them with the modern tools to create a new government entirely. One that is resistant to this threat of anacyclosis.
That’s what we’re doing right now at The Hidden Dominion. And we’re calling it “Enclavism”. I have a book in the making as we speak.

The future is about innovation. So, let’s start by innovating our government.
