    Lightbulb Why America Fell So Far...So Fast.

    All Empires Crash Soon After They Reach Their Peak
    Thomas Edison said, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” And because I love my country, I frequently criticize America’s shortcomings in the hopes of making her better.

    Nine stages of civilization
    The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years.
    These nations have progressed through this sequence:

    1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
    2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
    3. from courage to liberty;
    4. from liberty to abundance;
    5. from abundance to selfishness;
    6. from selfishness to complacency;
    7. from complacency to apathy;
    8. from apathy to dependence;
    9. from dependency back again into bondage.

    I'm guessing we are in the latter point of stage 8 unfortunately.
