America Doomed To A Fate Worse Than What History’s Lessons Teach

The-Fall

History and human nature display the certain doom for any semblance of an American Representative Republic from ever returning.  Rome’s Fall would be a better fate for us than what is now coming.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  – George Satayana

““When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.” – Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 2 May 1935

To quote the scriptures to emphasize the point the two men above made if you believe that God is the same yesterday, today and forever:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. – Hosea 4:6

Because America has not only forgotten God and declared His Laws and Ways to be evil, criminal, racist and discriminatory, it has also the notorious distinction that the bulk of it’s citizens and populace totally ignore history and human nature as completely irrelevant to them.  They see no reason to understand history outside of the revisionist pap being taught in every public school about how rotten this nation was at it’s foundation.

They do not care that the Republic has been fundamentally transformed into a despotic tyranny of which they are comfortable.  As long as Breads and Circuses are constantly maintained, it does not matter which emperor the factions clamor for: Caligula or Nero, Trump or Hillary – the end-result is exactly the same: ruins.  Willfully discarded by their own people for the empty promises of hope, change and greatness by those whom intend to rule, rather than govern.

The following essay opines that the best-case scenario for America at this point, is the fate of Rome.

For America, the Fall of the Roman Empire Is the Best Case Scenario

A lot of people, especially Millennials with degrees in Intersectional Climate Change Gender Studies, may not know it, but there is a way to anticipate what’s going to happen in the future. It’s not perfect, but it helps you make educated guesses about what’s next. It’s called “History,” and apparently no one in our ruling class has ever heard of it.

Roman history is especially applicable to America and all of Western civilization. The Romans had a good run, but then their moral, political, and cultural weaknesses grew insurmountable and the empire fell. Not all at once, mind you, but slowly – Rome fell long before the barbarians showed up at the city gates and started looting. Rome was powerful enough that its unworthy inheritors were able to live off the corpse for a few centuries before its enemies finished it off. In fact, Rome today still lives off the past. You go to Rome today primarily to see the ruins, and to shake your head over what the Romans just threw away.

The first phase of Roman civilization was the Republic, with something like a democracy (at least for some people) but with a definite rule of law, formal and especially informal. Noble Romans dedicated their lives to upholding these informal norms and values, the mos maiorum that formed the foundation of their society. The elite had its indulgences, but the expectation of a young noble Roman was that he would be highly educated, that he would serve Rome in its Army, and then move into politics and continue to serve in a series of governmental and diplomatic offices. And, if it came to it, he was expected to die for Rome.

But human nature asserted itself and the Republic became unstable, as factions developed and the mos maiorum was put aside for the sake of expediency. Populist politicians arose and agitated for the rights of regular Romans; the patricians were scandalized and fought back, sometimes killing the populist leaders. Eventually, some cunning Romans figured out that the armies they had been entrusted with were useful for more than crushing Rome’s foreign enemies. Sulla and then Caesar, frustrated by the checks and balances of the Republic – neither of them was a check and balance kind of guy – used their commands to take power. They were emperors in all but name; after the patricians tried one last time to reassert the Republic by getting stabby with Julius, the empire was born.

And thus began a period of glory that was in reality merely a blip in the long trend line downward. With the Republic gone, there was an imperial bureaucracy to take on many of the responsibilities citizens had once personally undertaken. The defense of Rome was outsourced to barbarians, who were allowed into Roman territory but never integrated. That, of course, went poorly. But Republican Rome’s inertia was strong enough to propel the Western empire on for another five centuries before it finally collapsed in exhaustion.

And now our civilization is likewise demonstrating its own shortness of breath, with Europe a few decades ahead of us on the downslope. Europe is utterly exhausted. It believes in nothing – its churches are empty and that hopelessness has translated into a demographic death spiral. Europe does nothing new and merely feeds off of the fading triumphs of the last century. Its politics are frozen in a cycle of failure even as the barbarians it unwisely invited into its midst establish their own internal kingdoms. The elite is no longer composed of citizen-soldier-politicians in the mode of the ancient Roman patricians, or even the modern Winston Churchill. Instead, it is all bland bureaucrats, terrified of losing power and using their regulatory cudgel to squelch the unrest by marginalizing the unsatisfied and outlawing the speech of the uncooperative.

But while the elite obsesses about stomping out “racism” and “sexism” and “cisnormativity,” the real enemy slaughters Europeans at will. But pretty soon the surviving Europeans’ waning survival instinct will kick in and they will notice that Muslim terrorists are not running free in Putin’s Russia. Then they too will reject the chaos of their failing Republic for strongmen, and their course will be set.

Here at home, the left has tossed out our own American mos maiorum, with Obama leading the charge to disregard the norms and customs that he finds far too constricting. Obama is the poster child for the ruling class’s decline. He is poorly educated – internalizing your commie prof’s clichés and lies does not make you educated even if your degree says “Harvard” – and utterly without any personal investment through service to his country (Obama in the military? That’s a laugh. Do they make camo mom pants?). Of course he has no respect for our norms and customs – he does not know anything about them and he has no personal investment in them. He has no business running anything, as he has amply demonstrated during perhaps the most damaging presidency since James Buchannan’s.

Led by pedestrian street agitators like Obama and his equally undistinguished cohort of leftist allies, the left has gleefully chipped at the foundations of our American Republic, not understanding that our society is not static. They cannot disregard the rules and expect the rest of us to keep obeying them. Oh, some try – the GOP establishment’s supine response to Obama can be understood as a desperate gambit to try and preserve the old ways. They hope – without basis – that Obama is merely a blip and that after he flies off into his narcissistic sunset in a gas-guzzling jet things will go back to normal. Their strategy is passive. They want to wait him out.

But the rest of us don’t want to wait and see if that happens. We want to respond. And that’s why we have two very different candidates promoting two very different responses. We have Ted Cruz, who is promoting radical action to return to the American Republic, with a focus on the Constitution. He is the true American mos maiorum candidate.

And then we have Donald Trump, who cares nothing for norms and customs and embraces raw power much as Obama and the left do, only he promises to protect the interests of a different constituency. He’s a would-be Caesarean strongman/savior, though to analogize him further to Julius Caesar is to insult the concept of analogies. Trump is a vulgar fool milking phony populism for power, best understood as a particularly tacky Graachi. Unlike them, Trump is both ignorant and a coward, but like them, if he does get elected president, he will be cut off at the knees by the patricians of the establishment.

Hillary Clinton is an even more anti-Republic candidate. Like Trump and Obama, she cares nothing for anything but power. Another sub-par mind trading off her degrees from a half century ago, this unaccomplished, bitter harridan lacks the wisdom to chart a course that avoids aggravating our society’s already gaping wounds. Instead, she’ll pour salt into them for no reason other than her own delight at asserting power, gleefully poking at normals with initiatives like forcing women to accept men into their bathrooms and trying to disarm the law-abiding. Inevitably, she will be stunned when she finds her actions greeted by a reaction she cannot control, and the American Republic will disappear as her rule by power is replaced by her opponents’ rule by power. Oh, we may get a good emperor or two along the way, but history tells us how this story ends.

Someday, after the gloom of the next Dark Age clears, some tourist from a society that has rediscovered liberty will look at the ruins of the Capitol and shake his head at the fools who did not realize what they were throwing away.

    TRUMP’S GONNA WIN IT IF ITS FAIR BUT THAT’S NOT LIKELY. DON’T BLAME TRUMP FOR THIS DEBACLE , BLAME POLITICIANS FOR PUTTING US IN THIS MESS. HE HAS MY VOTE! CAN’T BE ANY WORSE THEN THE LAST FEW WE PUT IN THERE.

  2. invar

    You are operating under the delusion we are still a Republic and that the Oligarchy is going to allow us to vote them out of power by voting for someone not OF them.

    Of course, Trump was busy funding the Democrats and their agenda for decades while we were busy fighting it before he decided to run on the R ticket.

    Ted Cruz is NOT what you think he is. Please read articles on Ted Cruz by Kelleigh Nelson and Devvy Kidd on News with Views website. Also Geoffrey Grider on Now the End Begins. I have never believed Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio or Kasich. They are all pitiful. There are really no answers for America. Politicians are liars and swindlers. Voters are suckers. God hears prayers for forgiveness in Jesus’ name, but America is gone. No politician can save her. The church is blind, greedy, and mostly false, with no power to intervene. Voting is useless. Sorry to be so pessimistic but I am sixty-five years old and I’ve seen it all. Judgment has come for America and will not be stayed. False shepherds, false leaders, false doctrines and false prayers have brought us to this, they will not save us. Pray for mercy for your house and resolve to wait.

    We agree on most of what you said. We are no longer a Republic – we lost that in a velvet coup and what you are witnessing now is the public clamoring for a king/emperor even though they get offended at the accusation – but biblically, this is what an immoral people always do when their nations are collapsing.

  7. Arthur

    Why do you display a JAPANESE sword?!! Why not A Western European Christian sword?????????????????

    Well Arthur, the pic of the katana is because it is the most lethal, effective combat blade technology ever produced by man. And – I’m an Iado and Kenjutsu practitioner. That is why one of my actual Katanas is on my cover banner.

  10. invar

    So Arizona … provide us this proof he is a Communist like Sanders or Hildabeast. Proof – not your insipid conjecture.

    Enjoyed the article but “We have Ted Cruz, who is promoting radical action to return to the American Republic, with a focus on the Constitution. He is the true American mos maiorum candidate.” ?? I suppose he is as true an American as all the Bush’s (Samuel, Prescott, GHW and GW) have been. Its a “frog in the kettle” collapse, both Rome and the US.

  12. Krow!

    You had the first part of this article correct, but your thinking went down the drain and into the cesspool of stupidity when you attacked Trump. Your statements were wrong and it is greatly insulting to all of us “real” patriots for you to falsely attack him and to imply that we are ignorant Americans without the intelligence to choose a real leader for this failing Republic. Yes, Trump IS the real deal, the only hope we have. We do not want our country to become like Germany, Sweeden, France and other EU countries who are allowing those swine devilish Muslims into their borders. Yes! Build the Wall on the Mexico border, Yes!, ban all Musslins from entering our country. Its time someone had the guts to make the stand.

    Kaaaaa Kaaaaaa! saith the Krow.

  13. Your analogy is a useful one and the essay is generally well written (a pleasure in this internet age). I tend to believe the end for America will come rather quickly and violently ( though to be fair, you did note that an end like Rome’s is the best we can hope for). We are now under judgment, after heaping ever more heinous blasphemies upon God in the last few decades, like a coming landslide gaining speed. I think those of us who consider ourselves Christians will be forced to simply hunker down and pray for His mercy upon our homes.

  14. MA. Glenn

    How can Cruz possibly be the best hope for Amerika when he, just like Obama is NOT even eligible to be CEO of the US Corporation?

  15. invar

    Heil Caesar Krow! Seig Heil! Same difference. You want an emperor/king political messiah. “Trump is the only one who can save us!” Italians said the same thing about Il Duce too.
    The article was spot-on.

  16. invar

    We are in agreement Jeremy. We are under Judgement – and will be given over to worse and worse leaders. The Republic is already gone and the vast majority of the populace don’t care or don’t believe it.

  17. invar

    Cruz is NOT the best hope for America. No man running for office is. Anyone who thinks that wants a king or political messiah, and have no concept or understanding of what we were supposed to be as a people and nation.

  18. Democrat nor Republican I refuse to be.
    I serve a King who set me free.
    To those who serve Him in truth till death He has breathed the Holy Spirits breath.
    His rule is firm His coming sure to those that Satan cannot lure.
    We join Him as His Holy Bride and cast the evil World aside.
    Dash the Nations with His iron rod the judgment of a Holy God.
    His throne established forever more with Kingly rule from shore to shore.
    Come quickly Lord Jesus

  19. Kenneth J Curry

    AMEN!

    Good article. Reiterating what I have been saying about our leaders. But I like your last words best. We don’t know what you are throwing away is SO TRUE.

    But I might add you don’t know what you’ll be embracing next. It’s 10 steps below what you have now!

  22. Good article, just came across it.
    I agree with everything, but Trump. I actually do have faith in Trump, he seems to have fired up the American spirit obamas and hillarys have been ruining for years…

    That’s better than nothing.
