Popular history likes to blame the Germans for the fall of Rome, but reality tells a different tale. It was suicide, plain and simple – the same kind of self-inflicted destruction that the US and Europe are going through, right now.
We are killing ourselves, just like Rome did. The only difference is that our fall will kill a lot more, and the barbarians howling at our gates are mostly Chinese.
Greed and stupidity was what really killed the Romans. Greedy elites and stupid peasants. It’s a story that was old before Romulus was even a glint in his father’s eye.
