A Great Society

A so-called great society is like a person {after all a society is just an aggregate of people}. It is conceived, born, it matures, reaches a certain peak, and then begins the state of declension and finally it dies.

The United States for all intents and purposes:
Conceived: 1776 Declaration of Independence
Born: 1783 Official end of hostilities with Britain
Matured: 1871 World’s largest economy
Peak: 1945 Diplomatic, military supremacy
Declension: 1945-

The United States will not be reborn. Sure, you have heard the recycled slogan, “make America great again” which political leaders bandy about. Should anyone say this to you they are either ignorant or flat out lying {Let us remember that the definition of a political leader is not defined by or exclusive to official government appointed leaders}. To be sure, the U.S. is in decline and will eventually die like all empires that came before.

The maxim, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall” pertains here as well. The whirld has not seen such as the U.S. in terms of political, military, industrial, and economic power. Hence the fall will be catastrophic, like nothing the whirld has not seen. Accordingly, the fall of an empire is always requisite to the height it achieves.

An underlying theme over centuries is that people have not learned the great lesson. We have not come to proper terms with what it truly means to live, and we are afraid of the specter of certain death.
Man does not know how to live or die properly. Man is infinitely concerned with himself. Materialism actually rules each day, rather than God and other people, one’s neighbors. If God does to come into one’s view, then God is relegated further down the list of priorities in any given day; God is not primary. {there are in fact many people who profess to be Christian who conduct their lives in such a manner}. For this lacking, the penalty is death as pronounced by the Almighty God.

God chastises man for his sinful behavior each day without exception. We die each day and in many ways.
