America's fall: modern day Roman Empire
« on: March 02, 2014, 07:42:04 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Just read Oswald Spenger's book The Decline of the West.  He had this more or less nailed on the head back in the early Twentieth Century.

It's not "Satanic" and that's the problem.  Start punishing in this world and the emply promise of "God's punishment".
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
