It worries me to see how accurate someone was during our own struggles of colonists to form their own country to get away from a King who didn't care
about the people's rights. With laws that have been written since 9-11, and the dependency on Government of about 1/3 of the populace, it looks like
Alexander Tyler's cycle will once again become correct. I love America, and think it has so much potential, but the populace is becoming too
dependent, morally bankrupt, and non-productive. It almost seems that the politicians have designed this to happen, and I'm sure they have their
reasons, but why, is the big question I ask myself. Here is his cycle, and we are following it down to the letter.
Cycle of Democracy
(in his 1770 book, Cycle of Democracy)
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the
public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the
result that a democracy always collapses over a louse fiscal responsibility, always followed by a dictatorship. The average of the world's great
civilizations before they decline has been 200 years. These nations have progressed in this sequence:"
• From bondage to spiritual faith;
• from spiritual faith to great courage;
• from courage to liberty;
• from liberty to abundance;
• from abundance to selfishness;
• from selfishness to complacency;
• from complacency to apathy;
• from apathy to dependency;
• from dependency back again to bondage.
Looks like the next step is back into bondage!
