  • That which mathematically cannot continue, will not continue

  • all great civilizations eventually collapse

  • Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Rome, the Han, the USSR...All mighty empires fall. I personally think we will fracture into multiple smaller countries. Possibly, though most likely not, within my lifetime.

  • Nothing lasts forever, I don't know for how many more decades/centuries it will last for but one day it will fall.

  • Yes, and sooner than you think. Wishful thinking over there mate.

  • Everything will crash and burn sooner or later. It's the way of life.

  • The Empire of Europe will invade it in the year 2053 and take back what It's rightfully ours!! We shall rename it 'New Europe', and banish those still loyal to the fallen country to the sea! Cherrio Pip pip.

  • Every nation must end. There is not nation in the history of the world that has lasted forever and there never will be due to basic human nature. A government is created, it either grants significant economic freedom or it doesn't. Those that don't collapse quickly while those that do thrive for a period and then collapse again due to the fact that government is an institution created to protect your property by stealing it. Even if government starts good, it will inevitably attract the bad because of its power to legally use force to take what it wants. This was a trend seen in Rome, the Arabic empires, the Khanates, and is a trend we see today in the U.S. The fall of a nation is inevitable, it is only a matter of time.

  • I agree with the first comment. That sums it up nicely.

  • No, the USA has been around long enough and is one of the leading countries in the world (possibly behind China now), why would it collapse now?

  • Not before most of the rest of the world will collapse.

  • I sure hope not.

The poll doesn't say it will collapse now. It says "eventually".

"all great civilizations eventually collapse", Posted by: travis18352, When did Britain collapse? France? China? I don't think your post can be supported with facts. Some civilizations fall, i.e. the Roman Empire. Others have endured & thrived, for numerous centuries.

@DisaterX I didn't say it would collapse now. It might collapse if the government doesn't get their heads straight and actually focus on the problems.

Britain and France forfeited much of their territory, and withdrew inward. Britain was the largest empire of all time.

The United States is lacking right now. Canada is beating us right now in terms of middle class. Our middle class community is radically shrinking, and it's becoming more and more harder for them to live. It's becoming harder for college students to pay for colleges because the tuition has increased tremendously over the years.

^^^Canada has been beating us as far as equality for a while now. The Middle class in the US is shrinking rapidly because of lack of regulation, and will continue to do so under corporatism.

Vensura has got that exactly right. That is why Canada's middle class has had about a 14-20 % increase in the past few years and we have remained stagnate.

It is already slowly falling apart.
