.I don't know exactly to what extent you qualify that statement because certainly America has only been here in the worlds recent history. But I can assure you that when it comes to the players and events that are present in the culmination of this age, America is upfront and center. To much of the world is looking at Israel and they have it in their minds that the fulfillment of prophecy hangs in and around that area. But they are seeing it from man's eyes along with incorrect teachings of escatology. For those of you who do not know what escatology is, it is simply the study of interpreting biblical prophecy concerning the end of this present age and the beginning of the millenial reign.
Certainly Israel also plays a role in this parade but when it comes to understanding the prophecies in daniel about Daniel's people in the latter days, you are talking about the so-called ten lost tribes.(lost to the world and themselves but not to God) you see God had a vision and promises to fulfill and America became that great nation where his people would obtain rest, a sanctuary if you will. As America roles down this path and as the enemies of God rule over them.(a brief side note here) When I speak of America and its constitution I am speaking of those came from Europe and the british Isles and founded this country under a covenant given by God. This man Barak Hussien Obama will tear us in pieces now. He has already divided the land for gain. We are very polarized right now.. I wil leave this for now because the subject is so extensive. Just now that the end times biblical events hang around America, the place where Jacob was gathered again. There are many strangers that cling to Jacob now and they are the reason Obama got elected. You can't beat Santa Claus. lol
Generational Dynamics is based on a simple idea: That societies and nations make mistakes and then learn lessons from those mistakes. But generations grow older, retire and die, and are replaced by new generations who are too young to remember those mistakes and those lessons. When that happens, the mistakes are repeated.
This is important today, because one of those mistakes is to have a major war. There are certain wars called "Crisis Wars" that are so violent that they actually put the nation's survival, or at least the nation's way of life, in danger. America's last crisis war was World War II, and the previous one was the Civil War. (World War I was never a crisis war for America.)
Many crisis wars are are world wars. A diagram showing the major crisis wars for the last few centuries is at the bottom of this page.
Generational Dynamics is very important at this time in America's history because we've entered a new "crisis period." Ten years ago, all the nation's senior government, business and educational leaders and managers were from the generation that grew up during World War II, and experienced the trauma of seeing homelessness, starvation and death all around them, while they lived in fear of German and Japanese bombers. That risk-aversive generation dealt with problems using compromise and containment.
Today, those risk-aversive leaders are gone, retired or dead. Today's leaders are from the "Baby Boomer generation," born after World War II with no personal memory of that war. The people in this generation are not risk-aversive. The people in this generation are more likely to be risk-seeking, arrogant, hubristic, narcissistic, and self-assured. That's why America's attitudes have changed so much in the last ten years.
Once you understand Generational Dynamics, then you'll understand a very great deal about how the world works, and about America's future for the next thirty years.

I was doing some research for this thread, and started reading about what you heard on the radio. Check this out: Strauss-Howe Generational Theory
I was particularly interested in if the same pattern had happened prior to the Revolutionary War, and to attitudes of generations prior to 1900.edit on 13-11-2012 by darkbake because: (no reason given)
