Below you will find her amazing insights on how we can all contemplate our nation’s demise and try to figure out what each of us can do:
“If we follow the pattern of other great nations and empires, our country will reach its expiration date six years from now when it turns two hundred fifty, according to author Cal Thomas.
Thomas bases his prediction on the research of Sir John Glubb, an English scholar who traces the rise and fall of empires over three thousand years. Glubb concludes that the average time before empires fall from grandeur is two hundred fifty years.
The United States is in the last stage of empires, the age of decadence, according to Thomas. ‘Given the history of other empires and great nations, the decadence that now is tightening its grip on America almost guarantees our demise or at the very least a radical decline…,’ he says in his book ‘America’s Expiration Date.’
Can we stop this downturn? ‘Possibly,’ he says, ‘though the hour is growing late. But any revival of the American spirit won’t come through politics and politicians.… America’s central problems are not economic and political; they are moral and spiritual. If not addressed on that level, our doom is sure,’ he says.
Then how can we make America great again? Not through government, Thomas warns. Only through individual moral and spiritual responses will our country revive.
So what is my part in this?”
