In the attached video Dr. Hanson has made A LOT of valid points here.
History is slowly repeating itself IF we are not careful.
Thinking about it… the fall of these early Western civilizations collapsed after how many years? A couple hundred ~~ several hundred years? For example, the Roman Empire lasted quite a bit; however, it began to collapse.
“…The fall of the Western Roman Empire, AD 376-476, was the process of decline in the Western Roman Empire in which the Empire failed to enforce its rule, and its vast territory was divided into several successor polities…”
The Greek Empire lasted about ~ 350 years.
And United States is at this day in age at about 244 years since we declared our independence from Great Britain… And about 234 years since the creation of the U.S. Constitution.
Why? Here’s my thoughts. The democratic party wants…NEEDS more votes for future elections ergo reasoning behind in trying to make Washington D.C. the 51st state in the United States. What then? It’s already leaning towards making an amendment to the U.S. Constitution, particularly the 23rd amendment that bars Washington D.C. from becoming a state, if it goes their way.
Feels more in their direction to holding onto their power and control of the Federal Government. It’s so political and gotten corrupt way from the get-go. I do not want these very progressive and liberal thinkers to overtake (for a lack of a better term) power and control of our Federal Government. I prefer the checks & balances, the balance of powers to be in place. Not for one particular party to be over-powering everything.
As I’m thinking of these out loud… What one party has ever been successful in “ruling”? Sounds very similar to becoming a socialistic / communistic aspect here. I hate to say it, but I’m becoming more weary of what’s been going on and do not like how our country is headed down towards. Again, these are just my thoughts and I’m seeing things becoming more apparent like it’s literally in front of us – slapping us in the face. However, so many people here in the United States are so filled up with the divisiveness, hatred, racial tensions, etc. People lack logical intelligence and straight up respond emotionally and irrationally. You really have to thank our politicians who keep adding the oil to the fire than rather doing what they’re supposed to be doing. They have one job… do it properly. Oh, but of course not. They want to keep us divided in order to keep themselves in office. That’s their play.
He mentioned the PDF document of Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism – it is a 96 page document – and I’m still reading it… I have to re-read portions of this document to make sure I read it correctly. Because it boggles my mind:
