A Go Back To Bondage (No! Not That Sort Of Bondage)

\The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These countries have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual religion to great courage; from courage to liberty; from freedom to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency rear into bondage.\ --Sir Alex Fraser Tyler (1742-1813) Scottish jurist and historian

That quote really influenced me and I needed to fairly share it with you. Are we bound to repeat this progression? And if this is actually the actual progression of great cultures, where are we in the act?

As a culture, it seems we have move past bondage and spiritual faith as ideas that determine us, and I risk to say that we have also moved past courage and liberty although politicians still like us to suggest we're in the middle of it, despite some attempting to remove our civil rights (NSA wiretapping?).

Obviously, we were once an abundant nation and if the recent studies on our country's obesity epidemic are an indication, we are at minimum physically quite abundant still.

My concern is that the masses have moved in to selfishness and complacency, and really nearing, if not already fully on board with, apathy. How else have our connections started to fall? How else have our civil rights begun to erode substantially? How else have we allowed New Orleans, an city, to become scarier than the usual third world country, entirely abandoned and forgotten only couple of years later?

We are already dependent. We outsource our jobs to China and India in order that we could have cheap foreign labor. We build cars in Mexico for the exact same reason. Our trucking business is apparently going up to Mexican companies. Identify further on a related wiki by clicking amazon.com/tyler-collins/e/b01a8gj4ie/.

With all the hubbub about illegal immigrants, it seems we're seeing all of the jobs that used to be good, middle/working type careers which used to offer for a a living wage, health insurance, the capacity to get a home and two cars, put the kids through school, and have a pension for retirement. . . We would like those jobs to be done elsewhere for a portion of the cost and without any safety or environmental restrictions.

And if that was not enough dependence, think about that dependence on foreign oil? To quote my kids all through long road trips, \Are we there yet?\ Are we on borrowed time as far as the imminent come back to bondage is concerned? We have reviewed the 200 years by 31 years now.
