History in Perspective: The Fall of the Mightiest Nation (w/ audio)

I think all of the talk about the imminent  loss of the U.S. fiat Federal Reserve Notes as the currency of the world is just more smoke, mirrors and scare tactics. Do I believe that the dollar will one day be worth about as much as reprinted Confederate money is today? You bet your sweet bippy I do!  It’s inevitable.   I just believe that our time in history hasn’t advance that far … yet.

History does repeat itself. I found the article below on the very informative Godfather Politics site, Glenn Beck, National Decline and the Story of the Roman Empire  by. He explains our present place in the timeline of the final decline and failure of our dollars. A must read!

However, before we get to that I though I’d move a great story from the DEEPER section of THEI to the front section.  It’s “The Fate of the Mightiest Nation” by Hudson & Landry, two great comedians and talk show hosts who were very popular in L.A. during the 1970s.  I think this recording from almost 40 years go is the perfect lead-in to Mr. Bower’s report of where we stand today when it comes to the Fate of the Mightiest Nation.  If you like it please pass the URL along to your friends. . . .EDITOR

Glenn Beck, National Decline and the Story of the Roman Empire

In my last installment in this series I argued that talk show host Glenn Beck was raising legitimate concerns about the state of the nation, but that he had a history of predictions of imminent disasters which did not pan out. Why didn’t they? After all, the left really does have a strong totalitarian bent. No nation is guaranteed eternal life, let alone eternal prosperity and hegemony. And the United States is, indeed, aggressively moving in the wrong direction.So why didn’t the dollar collapse? Why is it still the reserve currency of the world? Why don’t we have hyperinflation? Why did gold stall and then fall last summer? Was there a food shortage? Nope. Widespread urban violence? Nope. Depression, stock market collapse, bond market collapse? Nope, nope and nope. Why not?Because that’s not how it works. Great nations do not suddenly lose reserve currency status or hyperinflate or collapse economically—not unless they lose a war or are destroyed by natural disasters. The archetypal decline and fall story is that of Rome. It was the eternal city, supposedly, but nevertheless its gates came crashing down and its cities were trodden over by rude barbarian feet. And all of this happened just as the great classical philosophers had warned it would. . . Read Complete Report
