Partialize or Perish: The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall

Exodus 18:21 Select capable men from all the people--men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain--and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.

The United States of America is teetering on the edge of a perilous precipice, overlooking the bone yard of history. A forensic study of the bone yard of nations, empires, and cultures reveals a common cause of death; they all collapsed under their own weight.

Death_of_AmericaIt is also true that the bigger they are, the more likely they are to fall. It often happens quickly, when a paradigm shift that has been building for decades gradually reaches the tipping point, and everyone is shocked because they were too blind to see it coming.

The purpose of this essay is to show that the dynamics behind the demise of nations are endemic to reality, and constitute a laser straight imperative which manifests in all aspects of human endeavor. If we stray from that imperative we will experience tragedy and failure, whether it is the sinking of a ship, the failure of a business, or the collapse of a nation.

I intend to illustrate the application of these imperative principles of reality by giving examples from different arenas.

TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Government
KEYWORDS: centralizaton; history; revolution
I almost didn't read past the first item because it is a treatment of the Church that displays an anti Catholicism and as I did read the rest I saw that it does not fit the piece at all. The Church did centralize but it did not collapse. Other than that it is very good.
