Will the U.S. Fall Like Rome?
don’t think that we will fall like Rome because we learned from them and won’t repeat history.
Like when the Romans got killed with Christians, Barbarian invasions, and environment/health, we won’t make those
mistakes. So if they fall, we won’t, if they succeed, we will.
churches were built and people were turning into Christians, Rome’s emperor started funding for Christianity. Instead
of putting the money for the army, the emperors put the money for Christians and to build churches. So when the Barbarians attacked, there were no new people or tools to defend them. Therefore, Rome got killed by the spread of Christianity; but we won’t make this mistake because our President
is wiser and will put the money for good use.
Rome got killed because they left their
whole Western side open for attack. This happened because they went to battle
in Italy. It won’t happen in the U.S. because we will put half
of our men in battle and half to defend our country. Thus, enabling the invaders
to attack and catch us on our heels. So, Barbarian invaders killed Rome, but won’t kill our country.
last reason that U.S. won’t fall like Rome is because of our environment and medicine for health has improved.
Our medicine has given the chance to survive, theirs didn’t. They
didn’t have the utensils to fix themselves during their time of need. And
if they did have the utensils, they would be made of lead or other stuff that could kill you.
The brilliance of Rome killed them, not us.
rise of Christianity, the Barbarian invasions, and the environment/health won’t kill the U.S. but did kill Rome.
We aren’t dumb enough to repeat bad history over and over again to make us fall like Rome.
But we may be dumb enough to not repeat what the Romans did do well. So,
all in all, Rome helped us not to fall like them.
