Old readers will know of my aversion to the official New Year defined as 1st January; which is defined in terms of what it is not (not astronomical, not seasonal and not Christian) rather than what it is - which is to say arbitrarily numerical...
This means the Year is not truly new, but only demonic-fake-'New'.
So, the New Year and its 'celebration' is almost-certainly Satan-spawned - as what else could it be? When we are induced to celebrate the arbitrary, it is only one step away from celebrating the actively-evil.
Thus your cheerful and social Happy New Year! greetings with neighbours are approximately spiritually-equivalent to a Nazi salute or the clenched fist of Communism...
But this is the day one of the calendar-year; and my understanding is that the demons are very keen on arbitrary numerology - on the special significance of certain arbitrary numbers (i.e. fakely-significant numbers); being super-especially fond of decimals, decades, centuries - and the metric system generally, including SI units ("Systeme International" - French, wouldn't you know).
The lower-ranked (bureaucratic, 'Ahrimanic') demons love these systems because they are made-up by officials; and because of their abstract efficiency, and easily calculational inter-convertibility.
SI units model the world as-if it was already the single totalitarian System that the Ahriminic demons day-dream about implementing and operating...
The metric-SI system artificially-'unifies' the world - and achieves this abstract coherence by its indifference to the human.
By contrast the Imperial System (feet and inches, furlongs and leagues etc) was originally based-on the human body and mind; and the usage of measures that are functionally appropriate to the actual task in hand. This was especially the case in its earlier, 'medieval' forms - e.g. when 'an acre' was the amount of land that could be ploughed in a day, locally.
There are also sacred, 'magical' number and geometrical 'systems', apparently derived from Pythagorean-Platonic philosophy - and these are universal; but abstract, not human, not functionally-derived.
(See How the world is made: the story of creation according to sacred geometry, by John Michell, 2012.)
But naturally, none of these genuine, good-aiming spiritualities are of interest to the demonic powers - except when they can be subverted and then inverted; because inversion is the basis of anti-Christian symbolism and ritual - just as inversion of values is the most advanced form of evil.
It was, presumably, the middle-managers among the demons (as among humans) who chose to make 2020 the year for the global totalitarian coup.
2020 is just the kind of meaningless but superficially-significant 'decimal' number which they like best, and which they believe brings them the best results.
So - what about 2022? Anything special?
I think not - not for the kind of Being that is engaged in the Ahrimanic programme. They are keen planners and 'strategists', and are explicitly aiming at 2030, the next decade - for the 'completion' of their current strategy of worldwide surveillance and control.
But as of the approach to 2022; these mid-level demons have apparently lost control, and their plans are not happening to schedule.
Why? Partly because the plans were based on falsehoods and could never have-worked.
Partly because of unexpected resistance.
But mostly because the 'Sorathic' demons of chaos, of sheer destruction and negation, are increasingly in control; and are using The System to inject chaos, destruction and negation into itself.
The Ahrimanic demons intended to use The System to rule the world post 2020...
But the Sorathic demons want to use The System to destroy The System.
There is no doubt that order is collapsing and chaos is increasing - locally and worldwide.
Therefore: the most likely prediction for 2022 is... Accelerating chaos
(...Which is actually a bit of a non-prediction - since the nature and location of chaos cannot - by definition - be predicted!)
But this tsunami of dysfunction is not apparent to the Ahrimanic middle-managers, because they are incompetent and dishonest; self-blinded fools who live by self-serving lies - and they believe that their interests are best served by pretending to omniscience and omnipotence.
When real knowledge and power are lacking, the adopt the Texas Sharpshooter tactic of claiming that whatever has-happened was exactly what they wanted to happen...
In the face of actual accelerating chaos; demonic middle-managers will continue 'confidently' to assert that everything is getting better...
...All is on-track and on-schedule; tractor production continues to increase by hundreds of percent per year; and the bureaucratic utopia of own-nothing/ be-happy will be oven-ready for 2030 - all in accordance with plans...
And this will be asserted, louder and louder, officially and by the mass media - until the world is engulfed by war and famine, disease and death, flame and flood...
At which point they will simply claim that they always meant to do that.
Romantic Christians should not be misled by the collapse of the Ahrimanic-bureaucratic plans into assuming that this means the powers of Good are necessarily ascendant.
The birdemic-peck narrative would indeed collapse because of Christian resistance - if such existed. But does it exist?
Good can only come of good (not from evil-motivations) - and unless there really is a Christian resurgence, then failures of evil planning will not imply a better overall outcome - not if those failure are due to ascendant chaos.
All complex strategies and functionalities (both Good-motivated, and of evil-intent) that depend on organization, coordination and obedience will - sooner and sooner - be sabotaged by the waxing of Sorathic evil.
Thus, the failure of evil-plans is not good news when they are being thwarted by evil-not-plans...
But only when evil-plans are thwarted by intentions on the side of Good.
