    William has discussed how the current eclipse cycle should have resonances to the last corresponding one in 1967. I can’t help but connect Muhammad Ali’s refusal to comply with the draft for the Vietnam War in ’67 with the recent refusal of rap star Nicki Minaj to toe the line when discussing the Covid vaccines on social media with her 100 million+ followers. Both are God-level African-American celebrities who made waves by publicly opposing the establishment powers.

    Also: Black Lives Matter protesting NYC enforcement of the vaccine passport (https://www.rt.com/usa/535480-blm-new-york-vaccine-incident/) seems to echo the Black Panther occupation of the Capitol in 1967. In both events, we see African-American-activism groups mount a protest which defies the powers-that-be.
