This Is How Empires Collapse

This is how empires collapse: one complicit participant at a time.

İmage

Before an empire collapses, it first erodes from within. The collapse may appear sudden, but the processes of internal rot hollowed out the resilience, resolve, purpose and vitality of the empire long before its final implosion.
What are these processes of internal rot? Here are a few of the most pervasive and destructive forces of internal corrosion:

1. Each institution within the system loses sight of its original purpose of serving the populace and becomes self-serving. This erosion of common purpose serving the common good is so gradual that participants forget there was a time when the focus wasn't on gaming the system to avoid work and accountability but serving the common good.

2. The corrupt Status Quo corrupts every individual who works within the system.Once an institution loses its original purpose and becomes self-serving, everyone within either seeks to maximize their own personal share of the swag and minimize their accountability, or they are forced out as a potentially dangerous uncorrupted insider.
The justification is always the same: everybody else is getting away with it, why shouldn'tI? Empires decline one corruptible individual at a time.

3. Self-serving institutions select sociopathic leaders whose skills are not competency or leadership but conning others into believing the institution is functioning optimally when in reality it is faltering/failing.

---------
---------

That's how empires collapse: one corrupted, self-serving individual at a time, gaming one corrupted, self-serving institution or another; it no longer matters which one because they're all equally compromised. It's not just the border legions that are phantom; the entire stability and strength of the empire is phantom. The uncorruptible and competent are banished or punished, and the corrupt, self-serving and inept are lavished with treasure.

This is how empires collapse: one complicit participant at a time.

The empire collapses when;

12. The feedback from those tasked with doing the real work of the Empire is ignored as Elites and vested interests dominate decision-making. Enough said.

There's little doubt that in today's world of politics, the #1 ability required is to tell preposterous lies with a straight face.

BHO, Reid, Pelosi, Biden and Debbie Wasserman what's-her-name...Schitz... all have the same ability in spades.

Time (Saturn/Cronus) is run in cycles. Everything (in time realm) is cyclic. So is the (not only human) life. Incarnation have timetable in cycles again. Life-Dead is cyclic too. Empires/Countries/States life is under cyclic timetable. Energy-Time-Matter moves under the law of PHI spiral. Spiral can be left handed (Swastika - dead, dying) or right handed Sauvastika - alive, life). To think for USA as something different from GB is not serious - it is just extension of GB, as GB is extension of Roman empire. In middle ages that empire was fragmented and represented by the church (Catholic - Vatican), but nevertheless it existed. Roman empire was extension of other empires- and all that lead to 3114BC - the birth time of the State. The thread debate the symptoms of the decay-rebirth of all empires/States.
My own opinion is that the timetable of State is over. Something new is going to be bring into the world, and I bet it'll be not NWO, but something new, something which humankind has been not experience before. And we all are going to see it.

If those toddlers are psychopathic megalomaniacs then yes

Well said! We could use a change, we've allowed a minority with a socioeconomic ponzi scheme to have control for far too long.
Important to bear in mind, in the past, they have also been responsible for many of the uprisings against their own tyranny.
Problem, reaction, solution.
After the uprising they facilitated in the first place, they present a repackaged version of what was before, and this one is even more tyrannical than the old regime. Illusion of choice is very empowering to the ignorant masses, and they will be happier debt slaves.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss, at least that's the way it was.
What they did not have is millions of politically awake educated people that see this game for what it is.

Jay, did you say education? The present day educational system (globally) is a matrix with no end. Good - you did mention illusion - the matrix is an illusion we live in. There is two hemisphere in the brain - left and right - I'll give the clip "How it feels to have a stroke" - a must to see clip for everyone:





What Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor didn't mention was the so called mirror neurones located in the middle of the (reptilian) brain - this neurones mirrored and disrupt communication btwn the brain hemispheres. For human to be homogeneous and perfect both hemispheres of the brain have (must) to be in full synchronized. How we feel sometimes is more important of how we think.

This minority (who rules the world today) you mention is parasitic in their essence, but this is how the life (PHI) works - parasites go and attack decaying and dying entities. Yes, humankind is ill of this illusion we live in because of this (reptilian) mirror neurones which disturb us to feel in unity - empathy. Yes, I agree that there is old repackaged version of oppressive religions (g-d has no religion) - so called "New Age". And because "nothing new under Sun" the old roads lead to nowhere (as the last 5000+ years we've see). And again - We are gods in amnesia. We just dream a nightmare. It's time to wake up of this dream and see the reality - the State (any State, anywhere) is oppressive instrument of parasitic entities. Everything we've learn in school is lie to the most extend.

(If you are interesting in mirror neurones issue I'll try to find a informative video about it)

Interesting you touched on "nothing new under Sun"... straight from Ecclesiastes, I've come to the conclusion it's the definitive book of the Bible/Torah and the rest are mainly commentary and metaphor. Most of it was never meant to be taken literally, however, at least in my opinion, Ecclesiastes should be.
Ecclesiastes is a book of profound truths, far more philosophical and quite different from the rest of the canon. Interestingly, Octo and I have had conversations on Ecclesiastes a few times, and the way it was translated into Svenska usurped it's meaning.
They translated meaningless, to VANITY damned.gif Talk about a way for people to miss the entire point.
For example: I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
But in Swedish it's I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are vanity, a chasing after the wind.
There is a difference between inconsequential and self glorification, with the latter meaning, the entire thing looses the luster it was intended to have. In translation it's as though they sucked out the entire point.
That was blatant, with purpose, and an inexcusable deviation from the original.
Thanks for the video, just rolled out of bed... I'll give it a watch after a caffeine IV. coffeetime.gif

chuckle.gif Yeah, lost in translation. Svenska is strange language - they havn't the english "will", but only "shall" (ska), but "shall" always involve question. Jag vet inte... That's why we people must have more social contacts globally - every new language/culture expand our understanding and make us more rich. Must be not any antagonism though - every coin have two faces, so with folks/nations. Every negative approach brings negative result.
Here is the mentioned before mirror neurones movie:





Very mistakenly they are associated with empathy - empathy is union with g-d we are all inseparable part of.

All revolutions commence from within and machine gun bullets and murder are also able to collapse empires...

The world altering Russian revolution was able to move forward only because millions of disillusioned Russian soldiers refused to keep murdering the Russian civilians who they eventually took sides with and after killing their homicidal military officers joined together with to overthrow and exterminate the three hundred year old Romanov dynasty...

Around 5,000,000 to 10,000,000 Russians died during that terrible struggle...

But then came Josef Stalin and all hell was unleashed...
