How often do YOU think about the Roman Empire?
This viral meme has taken over the internet, claiming that men think about the Roman Empire at least once a day. However, Glenn thinks it is timely regarding a more serious question: is America suffering the same fate that led to Rome's collapse?
Glenn has been warning about the similarities between America's current political climate and the circumstances that led to Rome's demise for YEARS. Here's a throwback to a Glenn TV special from 2013 where Glenn compares modern America to Rome:
Glenn identified five major causes of the Roman Empire’s collapse:
- Massive, self-interested bureaucracy
- Debased currency due to enormous debts
- Abusive taxation
- Overextended military
- Demographic/military invasions
Sound familiar? It's deeply concerning to consider how much farther we've gone down these roads since Glenn's predictions in 2013. Here are a few stories Glenn has covered recently that show that America is following in Rome’s fatal footsteps:
1. Massive, self-interested bureaucracy
