Annotation

Feminist version of the millennium. In this version the Messiah is an elected position held by 1,000 people (500 men and 500 women) for one year each, the earth returns to its condition prior to environmental damage, all plastics, bottles, and aluminum return to their original constituents, and extinct animals return. The coming of the millennium can be recognized when things work as they are supposed to and committees function perfectly.
