Does The Shutdown in America Signal the end of an Empire?
The US is embroiled in a partisan struggle between the Democrats and the Republicans. The result is that the Government is in the shut down mode. Many government posts and workers are sent on furlough without pay and some services are also shut down. This is not a laughing matter when a 17 trillion budget deficit and debt is also added. What of the future ? The fact is that all historical empires last for a time and then decay sets in. The same thing happened to the Roman empire, The Ottoman empire, The Mughal Empire and the British empire. All empires follow a distribution curve with a graph at the apogee and a start and finish at zero.
