History repeats itself

February 13, 2012 Leave a comment

I went all the way back to the Roman Empire and found the 26 times in history that Nations, States, or Empires have taken the exact same steps that we have to get where we are so that I could find out what happens next.

Step one: A removal of or massive confusion about man’s relationship to God
Every time a nation starts down the path that we find ourselves on, it begins years in advance with the removal of the importance of God.  The Romans worshiped many gods. The citizens of the Weimar Republic changed their views on God three decades prior to their demise.   When Man begins to think that Government is the answer to all the problems he faces, he lessens the impact that God is allowed to make in the leadership of his affairs.
Step two: Massive corruption of the political class
From Caesar to Hitler to current times, every leader who built his empire by allowing or even encouraging corruption within his administration has failed.
Step three: The people being ruled over have to be bought off by Government Largess
Eventually, those being ruled over get tired of the corruption and the rulers begin to buy their complacency by offering “social programs”.
Step four: The people being ruled over have to be distracted to keep them from revolt
Social Programs only do so much, so the rulers distract or entertain the masses by allowing violence and moral depravity to become more readily available.  In addition you often see the drug and alcohol use tolerated or even encouraged by Governments in the final stages of this step.  Think Roman orgies and the Opium dens in Asia
Step five: when the distracted begin to pay attention again…find them an enemy to blame for the mess
This is a big one.  For some reason, when the population finally begins to understand the mess that they are in, they NEVER look at the politician or ruler and say, “You did this, you are fired!”  Nope, most people look at the same ruling class they have had the entire time and say, “What happened?” and “Who is to blame?”  So the Romans blamed the Christians, many leaders (not just Hitler) lay the fault at the feet of “the Jew”.  This is the only way that an entire population of regular people allows real atrocities.
Step six: it all falls apart!
In all 26 cases that I researched, this has ended poorly!

Now let’s take a rational look at the Untied States today.
Step One:
The war on God has been going strong for almost five decades now.  Slowly we have removed God from almost all public view.  The general public has made it their mission to remove God, prayer, and most anything else worthwhile from public view and we have quietly shaken our heads and allowed them to win small victories.
Step Two:
Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, all the Kennedy Clan, Harry Reid, the Clintons, the Bush’s all come to mind.  Really have you ever seen a group of politicians who care less about what the people want than this current group?  Health Care, more than 70% of the populace of the country said “NO!!” yet it passed in just a few days with massive payoffs to insure votes against the will of the people.  They look at the camera and no longer even try to twist the truth, they just flat out lie and we allow it.
Step Three:
The reason these corrupt criminals keep getting elected is that over 40% of U.S. households Get some form of Government Assistance!  Do you really think this is not vote buying in it most evil form? Not to mention Free cell phones, SSI, SSDI, WIC, Housing, etc.
Step Four:
Distractions are now everywhere.  Porn on the Internet, MMA on regular television, free needles for dug addicts, free condoms in school, abortion on demand for teens.  Really it is hard to stay focused on the problems with these diversions!
Step Five:
Welcome Tea Party Patriots.  Then we are conveniently given an easy enemy…Welcome Occupy Wall Street Movement. “Let’s all hate the RICH 1%.”
Step Six:
something bad has to be coming.
26 out of 26 times, step one has been followed by step two, two by three, four comes next, followed by five which ends in STEP SIX every time.  Maybe this time will be different? Do you really think so?  I am not convinced.
