Western civilization hangs by a thread - to rescue it, we must delve deep into the past to find out how to save the future. The fall of the Roman Empire closely mirrors the challenges currently facing Europe and North America – toxic multiculturalism, rampant immigration, runaway feminism, debt, currency corruption, wildly antagonistic politics – everything we need to know to save everything we love is written deep in the history of ancient Rome – all we need to do is look! Stefan Molyneux, host of Freedomain Radio, takes you on a journey deep into the philosophical, cultural, economic and political causes of the decline and death of ancient Rome. Once you understand what happened in the past, you will never again be confused by what is happening now - and never be more certain about how to change what is to come.

Please have a browse through these sources, since I have gathered a wide variety of thoughts, arguments and ideas into one presentation. In particular, the argument that barbarians are analogous to terrorists was written about by Morris Berman in 2001. The four stages of Empire was written about by Sir John Glubb in the mid 20th century. He also wrote about the possible role of feminism in the decline of Empires. I hope that this presentation inspires you to examine the Fall of Rome for yourself, and that the sources provided turn out to be a useful starting point.

Notice how the dollar has lost value since the Federal Reserve was created. This parallels the devaluation of the silver denarius in Roman times. It got so bad in Rome even the government wouldn't accept the denarius because the silver value went down to just 5% silver content.

Are you tired of being told the previous generations were evil? That people in history did evil things? Sure they did. Nobody's perfect. So what. This doesn't mean you have to be responsible for the mistakes of evil men. Know this: there are good things in history too. All academics are based on what the state wants to teach. Question those who would silence you for learning more about yourselves through history. They only care about themselves because they're being propped up by entities who don't care about the general public. They're just a weak line of defense for TPTB. Be proud of your heritage and stand for the moral values you were taught. These values are slowly degrading because they are not taught anymore. What was once great has been diminished on purpose by those who would seek to destroy all that is good in society.

A big problem is that our educational system doesn't teach anything reliable about history. The system is propped up and protected by the faculity itself. They're too chickenshit to speak up inside the system because they'll lose their jobs and the 'authority' they hold. The Romans did this kind of thing too. You could be banished, sold into slavery, or even executed if you spoke out against TPTB at the time.

This lecture is well worth the listen. He gives a clear and concise 'order' to the facts on hand. Using his examples to explain the parallels we all face today. The same questions we have today in society have already been asked. We only need listen. History is about the thoughts and intentions of our forebears. Looking at their mistakes and their triumphs to form our own order to the universe.

I've heard the stories about how Rome influenced Western Society but I also heard some parallel stories on how Rome's influence reached into Asia too. Specifically Russia. They didn't use the title Czar for nothing.

Aqueducts & Sanitation?

 

I think if you do a little research in that area you'll find that modern waterworks and sanitation methods are much older than the Romans. Matter of fact Romans weren't the first to come up with any of those ideas at all. Why has the Roman & Greek style of architecture been so prolific for so long? We still use it today...
