“…for two weeks the mob had been rioting uncontrolled in the streets…The economy of the greatest empire that the world had ever seen was coming apart like an unraveling sweater…the cost of maintaining…gigantic armed forces…was bleeding the nation white and in addition there were the heavy subsidies that had to be paid to the…nations dependent…for support. The impoverished government had neither the funds nor the power to stop the riots.”
Readers, are we close to such a point? It happened, for the excerpt above was taken from the book, Those About to Die, by Daniel P. Mannix, written in 1958, and the nation was the Roman Empire. There are many similarities between the decline and fall of Rome and the decline of the United States of America, standing upon the threshold of its fall.
As you well know, the economy is stretched to its breaking point, and the American Empire has over-extended itself, much in the manner of the now-defunct Roman Empire. As with Rome, the United States has experienced a severe influx of illegal aliens, encouraging “immigration” by individuals who (most of them) come to the U.S. not to contribute, but to consume, or even worse: to “conquer,” as a fifth-column. The conquest (especially for illegal aliens crossing the border illegally from Central and South America) is actually seen as such: a “retaking” of Aztlan, alleged land in the U.S. these aliens claim historically as their own, the whole “process” called La Reconquista, or “the re-conquest.”
The Roman Empire had done this, in a manner:
“Throughout its history, [the Roman Empire] had taken in outsiders: a constant stream of individuals looking to make their fortune…supplemented by large-scale migrations.”
(The Fall of the Roman Empire, by Peter Heather, p. 159)
“Multiculturalism” as is very evident in Europe (the latest being Norway, paying non-Norwegian individuals up to $9,800 to pack up and leave) is currently tearing the countries of Europe apart. France, Germany, Sweden, and Britain, among others. Individuals that do not speak the native language maintain their cultures of origin without assimilating, and they end up on the public dole.
Here in the U.S. this is a direct extension of Cloward-Piven, to be able to reduce the populace to one that is completely dependent upon the government for all support. Ancient Rome had the daily bread dole and heavy subsidies for Roman workers who could not compete with the cheaper goods from foreign labor and imports.
And our fiat monetary system is about to collapse. Dave Hodges recently put out an article entitled Key Bankers Told Bank Holiday is Near-Read This Before Taking Money Out of the Bank, and this article reveals that the bankers are preparing for “widespread banking failure.” Such preparations have included “dry runs” in conjunction with FEMA and DHS. The bankers held a secret meeting in Albuquerque, NM, where the participants signed non-disclosure statements….
