— From what I have read, Rome had
seven centuries of almost unparalleled growth in size,
power, and weath, as well as an increasingly better life
for most of its citizens, until it became an empire
about 27 B.C. After that, it was basically only three centuries
until Rome and the Roman empire were finished and done,
at least in the west. This is a huge lesson for America,
Empower democracy outside of corporate control (or total
control by the military-industrial complex), and America
will flourish. If not, you face an end to America’s
strength in the world, as well as an end to the real
respect of other nations (and their willingness to be
our ally). This, more than anything else, is the
vitally important historical lesson from
ancient Greece and Rome.

Democracy and Tyranny:
Lessons from Ancient Rome

America is in the Same, Dangerous
Situation Rome was at the End of the Roman
Republic and the Beginning of Empire. If we Value
our Democracy, We Must Renew the Civic Virtues
of Honor and Public Service.

Smithsonian Magazine on Pocket: Is this the verdict of history on America’s once-proud democracy? See: Lessons in the Decline of Democracy From the Ruined Roman Republic, by Jason Daley — “Aspects of our modern politics reminded University of California San Diego historian Edward Watts of the last century of the Roman Republic, roughly 130 B.C. to 27 B.C. That’s why he took a fresh look at the period in his 2018 book “Mortal Republic: How Rome Fell Into Tyranny.” Watts chronicles the ways the republic, with a population once devoted to national service and personal honor, was torn to shreds by growing wealth inequality, partisan gridlock, political violence and pandering politicians. He argues that the people of Rome chose to let their democracy die by not protecting their political institutions, eventually turning to the perceived stability of an emperor instead of facing the continued violence of an unstable and degraded republic.”

If not, you face an end to America’s strength in the world, as well as an end to the real respect of other nations towards us (and their willingness to be our allies. The “currency wars” were a terrible drain on America, and Iraq has cost us about $3 trillion so far. Imagine if instead we had embarked on a program of microfinance around the world, think how much better things would be for us now!). “History teaches us that we don’t learn from history — but we must! Alexander the Great was stopped in Afghanistan, the British Empire was stopped in Afghanistan, the Soviet Union was stopped in Afghanistan, P-L-E-A-S-E become better students of history!

Every Federal politician is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Are we really about to forsake that, as well as our sworn honor, and allow tyranny of ANY sort to flourish in America? Are we about to lose our very democracy? This really is up to each and every one of us. I still have faith in the American people, and will always fight for the average American and the poor, who have such a reduced political voice these days, because, honestly, I have no other choice before God. I know that is too “high-flown.” But I have blogged what I see as the truth now for over ten years.
