Could Trump's America mirror Egypt post 1952?

Post by newcastle »


The tragic tale of Egypt’s decline: Is it also the story of America’s future?


Once a diverse, cosmopolitan society, Egypt has descended into corruption, inequality and bigotry. Sound familiar?

An interesting comparison to what befell Egypt post 1952 and the current path of American society.

Comparing America with Egypt in any way might seem fanciful but history often contains lessons that we ignore at our peril.

Reading the posts beneath the article is also very informative although disturbing.

Indeed...and many of them apparently from academics.

I hope the credentials of the author, Steven A Cook, pass muster with Hafiz, even though he'll probably lambaste Salon as a liberal, left wing online tabloid that's lost it's way :lol:

You might well be correct Newc. it depends on if Trump gets enough time in 4 years maximum to do so.

Problem with "learning from history" is that history is either "written by the victor", "written out of history" or "completely distorted", so lessons these days are hard to learn.

ALL Empires come to an end, History has proved that to be true time and time again, How long before the American Empire ends ? and just how similar today is the American Empire to the final days of the Roman Empire and the reasons for its collapse ? .....

There is one major difference though. America is a continent and it is in isolation and a long way from anywhere.



I did laugh at the end of the Film "the day after tomorrow" where all the yanks move to South America to escape the ice age in the North.

The American government said they would delete the National Debt to those new host countries in South America. !

Those same countries could easily say "What debt" ? , "you no longer have an economy". . . . . . gringo ...


Yep, USA is Babylon.... or is it ?
