It is easier than you think
The 40 years in the desert could well be a template for how to prepare for creative rule. The argument we are making is that we can stop thinking about how to bring down the ruling power because God, through the application of the resource curse, will see to the collapse of evil power. The question is what should we do instead of denouncing the incumbent, established power. The events in the wilderness could well be a narrative for how a people fashions itself for creative rule.
