Political Philosophy? (yes… it’s a discipline)


What is the Life Expectancy of a Civilized Society
By, Douglas L. Duncan
(Wednesday, November 7, 2012)

Sustained civilization is based on such elements as morals, law, decency, cooperation, harmony with others, etc..

A friend once told me,
"…The average age of the world’s greatest
civilizations has been 200 years."

 

My Rebuttal:
"You are referring to ‘The Roman Empire’ that historians like Edward Gibbon use as measurement of the ’200′ year life expectancy of ‘Civilized’ government."

~ An old book, but probably still an acceptable accounting: The History of the Decline and fall of the Roman Empire‘, by Edward Gibbon; courtesy, ‘Project Gutenberg‘: www.j.mp/YLZqp2


I quote from liberal, Randy Newman‘s own song, ‘A Few Words in Defense of Our Country’…

"The end of an empire, is messy at best
This empire’s ending… like all the rest
Like the
Spanish Armada, adrift on the sea
We’re adrift in the land of the brave
And the home of the free
Goodbye… Goodbye… goodbye…"

Footnote:
It is not the king, holding the scepter…
An ‘appointed’ leader (with their own ideology) has absolutely nothing to do with a country’s ‘moral’ condition (dim reflection).


Rather, contemplate the ‘Symmetry’ (even-split) of the ‘People’s’ ‘decision making processes’ for the past twenty-three  years, then think on this awhile:

“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand." ~Jesus the ‘Christ’ www.j.mp/TwIBdl
