When you look at the sorry collection of traitors and bastards at the helm of the West and feel overcome by despair, it is good to consider the succession of klowns who dismantled Rome in it's final years. The last Roman Emperors were a pathetic, rancid lot of rotten meat walking around in manpants.
There are parallels in history to explain what we are seeing today. It's not new. This has all happened before. What has changed this time around is the technology available to these fools to destroy their own civilizations. There is no recorded parallel there as far as we know.
