If the United States wants to avoid falling like the Roman Empire, it must avoid overconsumption and distribute resources equally, according to a study funded by NASA.
The fall of the Roman Empire, and the equally (if not more) advanced Han, Mauryan, and Gupta Empires, as well as so many advanced Mesopotamian Empires, are all testimony to the fact that advanced, sophisticated, complex, and creative civilizations can be both fragile and impermanent, reads the NASA-funded report published in the Ecological Economics journal.
Two important features seem to appear across societies that have collapsed, the study adds. The stretching of resources due to the strain placed on the ecological carrying capacity and the economic stratification of society into Elites and Masses.
The NASA study uses a Human And Nature DYnamical (HANDY) formula to provide a general framework that allows carrying out thought experiments for the phenomenon of collapse and to test changes that would avoid it. In other words, the model only takes into account general characteristics of fallen civilizations, and not the specifics.
What did the study find? That collapse is hard to avoid in unequal societies as [e]lites grow and consume too much, resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society.
Limits on resources harm the working class, while the wealthy are largely insulated from the problem, meaning resources continue to be used without regard to the cost to society. For example, an increase in vehicle fuel efficiency technology tends to enable increased per capita vehicle miles driven, heavier cars, and higher average speeds, which then negate the gains from the increased fuel-efficiency.

NASA has lived way beyond its usefulness.
Can’t predict O-ring failure ,but can predict the end of the world.
I’ve got some white paint to sell them for their roof.
It’s magic paint- $5000 per gallon.
So if NASA reports that communism is the way to go, does that mean Putin will give those two guys of our on the space station a ride home?
We’ll kill the libs before they even get the trains to the first FEMA camp on the tracks.
Which worked so well for the USSR.
NASA cannot even get their science right as of the past few years.
So, they decided to get into something requiring much less intellect.
And they screwed that one up just as much.
Dear NASA, your time has expired. Go away and let those of us who still have good STEM skills attempt to straighten out what you’ve Obama’d up. (Note: Obama’d up is an upgraded term for f***ed up).
NASA is spending it’s time and money promoting, communism, islam and global warming alarmism while we go to space in old Soviet rockets. Am I the only one that thinks that’s stupid?
Noting that the states have never delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, the specific power to tax and spend for space exploration purposes, the way to save Western civilization with respect to USA government is to enforce federal government’s constitutionally limited powers.

Besides Misery, what has Communism created?
Capitalism and personal rights created peace, enforced peace.
By it also, the world is now able to enjoy Coke(It’s the real thing), Ice cubes in their drinks, Actual Cold Beer and Levi’s.
No one wants live in any way like those who have been enslaved by totalitarian, fascist states
There is no confusion as to why people flock to our shores or cross the Rio Grande....
Everyone wants to be and American or emulate Murica.
Yippe, Kye, Yeah....Mthrfkr....
Hey NASA, how’s that communism been working up to now?
