Herland Report: Sadly, it has come to this. The once so great United States of America has abandoned its former values, lost its law and order and now experience civil unrest unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime.
The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by historian Edward Gibbon is an epic masterpiece that tells the story of how empires end.
It is a six volume comprehensive outlook on the last days of the Roman empire, published between 1776 and 1789, right at the time of the founding days of the United States.
Gibbon studied how a decline in civic virtues, stern morality and discipline ended up causing disorder, injustice and the end of the empire.
Corruption became the norm, the incorruptible destroyed, the liar prevailed, those who pushed for traditional virtues became the enemy of state.
When lies, cheating, cunning powerplays that destroy justice becomes socially acceptable among the elites, their example will carry precedence further down the ranks. As the population watches how the liar is honored, the cheater is hailed as the hero – they all begin to follow the same path.
The US Banana Republic: Gangs, mafia, lies and disorder: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said the martyred Christian preacher and not so popular anymore, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He is no longer an icon in today’s Marxist movements such as Black Lives Matter.
“As long as mankind shall continue to bestow more liberal applause on their destroyers than on their benefactors, the thirst of military glory will ever be the vice of the most exalted characters,” writes Gibbon and echo the very same problem.

As the American election is melting down in allegations of voter fraud, lies and cheating, upcoming lawsuits, a public completely out of touch with the mainstream media and its seemingly endless lies, the last days of Rome comes to mind.
As lack of justice and order, violence, street wars and drugs prevail, the United States looks more like a mafia system that makes the 1930s Chicago mobsters seem like children at play.
We are watching yet another Republic fall apart from lack of upholding its historic and traditional virtues.
Or will the political upheaval finally produce the draining of the Washington swamp of corruption, collusion and unfair power play? Will the end result be a more honest America that returns to its former greatness?
President Trump is now advised to order lawsuits in every state, turning the election 2020 into a war, not trusting any polling or results being reported.
World Net Daily reports: “The Trump campaign claims that with the president on a path to victory Tuesday night, vote counting stopped and overnight huge “surges” of ballots were counted for Joe Biden, sometimes coming without even a single accompanying vote for the president.”
When law and order breaks down, any Republic cannot be saved from the oncoming hordes of “barbarians”. Edward Gibbons spoke of this, how the very lack of civic virtues produced the disorder that allowed the takeover by Germanic tribes and other groups outside the Roman Republic – called barbarians – to finally sack Rome.
The Christian writer and icon who had fled Rome for its hedonism and lack of justice, St. Gerome, tells how the very same elite ladies that loved the vanity, orgies and decadence of Rome later begged in the streets of Palestine.
The end of Rome was brutal, they all fled for their lives, scattered to far away places such as the Judea province in today’s Israel.
St. Gerome’s statue in the monastery next to the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, stands as a reminder of the end of Roman glory. The empire died by its own hand – by suicide – as it tore down its own virtues, the very values that held it all together.
Today, the irony is that billionaire’s wealth may buy air time for propaganda in the news channels and pay the politicians that are running for office, yet fail to provide a good leadership: That of a man who seeks to do justice to the nation’s population.
Who thinks of the people? Which politicians or billionaires paying them thinks about the inner city schools, the horrifyingly low standard that millions in the United States grow up in? For many years, the US has more resembled a rogue state, its elite remarkably little concerned about the welfare of those at the bottom.
Gibbons is known for his view that the “kind Christian values” negatively impacted Rome and criticized its corrupt clergy, the corrupted church, the close links between the political elite and the religious establishment.
He asserts that Rome fell due to weakened Roman values, yet the Eastern Roman Byzantine Empire – where Christianity was implemented as core value system by emperor Constantine – lasted over 1000 years longer than Rome.
Martin Luther King Jr. famously states: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” It remains to be seen whether the American Republic will descend into further chaos or whether the darkness will be overcome.
