The Sequence of the Passing of a Civilization

Two hundred twenty seven years ago (227) in the year 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh had this to say about Republic’s and democracy.

“A democracy is always temporary in nature’ it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.

A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years.

During those 200 years, those nations always progressed though the following sequence.”

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;

2. From spiritual faith to great courage’

3. From courage to liberty;

4. From liberty to abundance;

5. From abundance to complacency;

6. From complacency to apathy;

7. From apathy to dependence;

8. From dependence back into bondage

At which stage in this sequence do you believe the United
States of America is currently in?


"Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth
find reserve in strength that will endure
as long as life lasts."

Dr. R. Carson

I believe we already past 6 for half or more of society and many are already well into stage 7.

And the shift is continuing to accelerate as time advances.
