LtTE Overreactions

There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.

How do they take it? They don't take anything that the voting public doesn't give them.

KENDALL SAYS When people complain of moral decay, they are referring to the everyday person. That is not what happened to Rome. Moral decay for them was more or less within the ruling class.

"SO WELL CALL EM DRONES AND TANKS INSTEAD OF SWORDS"

You really have no idea how we influence the world. I remember when we first went into Afghanistan, a reporter stopped by a village and what does one see? You see kids in clothing with America cartoon characters on them. They use our money. Their teens have posters of our pop stars. The people speak english better then we in the US speak any other foriegn tongue.

Our influence across the globe is more than our military strength.

So you are making the case that it IS indeed the everyday persons fault?

"It is the ruling class that is destroying this country as well"

We choose the ruling class. Rome did not do that at all. If their is corruption in our govt, it is the fault of the people. When there was corruption in Rome, the people had no say.

The Roman Empire was not able to change with the times. The corrput and powerful took power, whether they deserved it or not. That's how they ended up with such things like the year of three emporers or Claudius being named emporer by corrupt military people.

Tell me, did the vast slave class of people in the empire suffer from moral decay?

Rome is not a relevant analog to the United States. Rome was an empire that incorporated numerous nations under it's banner and forced them to follow their way. Rome in the 4th and 5th centuries was much older then the US is now. Rome didn't influence worldwide culture by example but by the end of the sword. Rome's "moral decay" can be chucked up to the failure of the ruling class.

Study Rome and tell me moral decay is a boogieman there are lots of examples of where we are and where we are heading if you care to crack a book.

Work a little slow at the hall I expect gives you plenty of time to post.

I won't take away the satisfaction you get from guessing.

Anyway, moral decay is just a boogieman that conservatives drum up once in awhile.

It's a condition that they complain about but offer nothing to fix. They just throw the "problem" at the feet of those they do not like.

Back in the day when they took organized prayer out of schools, people raved about moral decay for decades after that. But they didn't know what they were talking about.
