COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS: "Empires on the Edge of Collapse"
This is straight from the CFR website last month:

"
Summary:

Imperial collapse may come much more suddenly than many historians imagine. A combination of fiscal deficits and military overstretch suggests that the United States may be the next empire on the precipice.
"

Is there any subscribers to this website here? It's a "premium" article. Looks to be a calling for all the "illuminated ones" to study The Course of Empire series of paintings for insight into what is to come....

Inspiration:
A direct source of literary inspiration for The Course of Empire is Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgramage (1812-18). Cole quoted this verse, from Canto IV, in his newspaper advertisements for the series:

There is the moral of all human tales;
'Tis but the same rehearsal of the past.
First freedom and then Glory - when that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption - barbarism at last.
And History, with all her volumes vast,
Hath but one page.

Complexity and Collapse

Empires on the Edge of Chaos

By Niall Ferguson

Summary: - Imperial collapse may come much more suddenly than many historians imagine. A combination of fiscal deficits and military overstretch suggests that the United States may be the next empire on the precipice.

February 26, 2010 "Foreign Affairs" - March/April 2010 Edition -- There is no better illustration of the life cycle of a great power than The Course of Empire, a series of five paintings by Thomas Cole that hang in the New-York Historical Society. Cole was a founder of the Hudson River School and one of the pioneers of nineteenth-century American landscape painting; in The Course of Empire, he beautifully captured a theory of imperial rise and fall to which most people remain in thrall to this day.

Each of the five imagined scenes depicts the mouth of a great river beneath a rocky outcrop. In the first, The Savage State, a lush wilderness is populated by a handful of hunter-gatherers eking out a primitive existence at the break of a stormy dawn. The second picture, The Arcadian or Pastoral State, is of an agrarian idyll: the inhabitants have cleared the trees, planted fields, and built an elegant Greek temple. The third and largest of the paintings is The Consummation of Empire. Now, the landscape is covered by a magnificent marble entrepôt, and the contented farmer-philosophers of the previous tableau have been replaced by a throng of opulently clad merchants, proconsuls, and citizen-consumers. It is midday in the life cycle. Then comes Destruction. The city is ablaze, its citizens fleeing an invading horde that rapes and pillages beneath a brooding evening sky. Finally, the moon rises over the fifth painting, Desolation. There is not a living soul to be seen, only a few decaying columns and colonnades overgrown by briars and ivy.
Conceived in the mid-1830s, Cole's great pentaptych has a clear message: all empires, no matter how magnificent, are condemned to decline and fall. The implicit suggestion was that the young American republic of Cole's age would be better served by sticking to its bucolic first principles and resisting the imperial temptations of commerce, conquest, and colonization.

The whole thing is we were never suppose to be an empire. The empire builders came now look what is happening.

The so called Elite better find a place to hide, look what happened in Rome when it fell.

Simple living is just fine, they should try it sometimes, it sure is better than repeating history all the time.

Re: COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS: "Empires on the Edge of Collapse"
How odd, a thinly veiled message that the collapse is being initiated? Or are they perhaps out of favor and cut out of the loop? Would not be the first time that minions are thrown to the dogs..
Some very nice artwork that.
As his vision slowly cleared, the traveler came to the startling realization that he had been sitting by the side of the road, repeatedly hitting himself in the head with his walking staff. He had in fact been doing this for a quarter of a century.

Shaking his head at his own folly, he dusted himself off, set his gaze upon the road up the mountain and once more set off upon his journey.
