How new is the New Era?

Much has been said about present times, but has the truth been told? The vast majority of humanity blames a virus of very doubtful origin for the debacle. Some others blame the global corporatocracy for creating the conditions for a more tyrannical, authoritarian and controlling regime change than ever. Others rely on astrology and sacred writings to argue that we are at the end of an Era and the beginning of a new one, which necessarily causes the collapse of the old paradigms that sustained human and planetary reality to give way to birth of the new ones.
