Take the time to analyze history, and you will find remarkable similarities to our current age. So many countries have followed the same path and suffered the same, painful conclusions.
Unfortunately, this means that the freedom, democracy and the rule of law will disappear and be replaced by slavery, dictatorship and injustice. Every country in the world has experienced this, and now it’s time for the United States of America.
I hate the thought of this, but history shows us that there are few options when corruption reaches a certain level. Just look at Rome, if you think otherwise.
