Power will alternate

A two-party system of government is really a single administration that has two ideological branches which alternate with each other to rule. That alternation is built into the design of the bureaus of the government, each of which conducts its affairs with the expectation that power will alternate between the parties. 
Such temporal alternation mimics the economic alternation that shemitta represents, except that shemitta alternates political power back and forth on the basis of economic rather than electoral factors. 
In the biblical regime power does not alternate by electoral mandate but by conformity to an artificially induced economic business cycle.
