THE FALL OF ROME AND MODERN PARALLELS

When a patriot draws on our Greco-Roman Judeo-Christian heritage this means that there is a historical continuation we're building on going back thousands of years. Molyneux explains the present day parallels between Western civilization and the Roman Empire.



Aug 3, 2016 Stefan Molyneux: The Truth About The Fall of Rome: Modern Parallels.

Postmodernists are incapable of pulling roots or find a common denominator. There is a mental reason for that cognitive handicap. (More) When a patriot draws on 'our Greco-Roman Judeo-Christian heritage' this means something. It means that our culture wasn't dropped on earth from outer space in say, around 1965. It means there is a historical continuation we're building on to this very day. Molyneux  fulfills an old desire of the editors to place the common Western heritage in a context and explain the roots of our longevity and prosperity. We are repeating the same mistakes our ancestors made. We are in danger of losing it all. 

Please try to resist the postmodern habit of rejecting the information on moral grounds -- slavery for instance. Ethics and mores aren't constant, but depend on the level of human development. History must be accepted 'as is'. We can't change it. But we can appreciate its heroism and mistakes and try to learn from it so that we won't have to repeat it and lose the very thing that makes us who we are today and how we got here.

The video contains a lot of information in 2,5 hours. We recommend you take your time and focus on the matter in hand. You can always refer back to it to take notes. But it is important to understand the continuation. So watch it first in its entirety, and then go back to it for further study. 

Enjoy!
