the way i see it there's alot of thing in commun, but he are in the modern age we don't need a war to show the world we have fallen.

Something like the fall of th berlin wall was the "marker" for the end of the USSR. So as I said ealier slow economical breack down, but not a massive pool of blood...not in the US at least.

-Lots of war beyond the border

-growth of anti-americanism

and

-has lost it's economical swing of the 50's

see like that you'll get a wild fire started in no time. thumbsup.gif

***

for the yes but not so harsh:

-we're in the modern age and it's more likely to "pass on" the power rather then end in a war

-Countries like China and Japan are having the same (or bigger) economical boom that america had back in the 50's( we can expect them to reach and surpass american economical supremacy in less the 30 years)

-America didn't came up with a new economical idea since the "e-commerce" (huge flop!)

I am the one who started the " America & Rome " thread. America will indeed infact suffer the same fact as Rome sadly to say. But it will not be near as harsh, the U.S wont just fall off of the map like Rome did, it will see a slow decrease in economical growth, diplomacy trust, and general impact on the world.

The U.S will slowly but surely drift from being one of the worlds super-powers. Anti-Americanism is growing, just as Rome collected enimemes, small countrys ( i.e Afghanistan, and Iraq ) will begin taking shots at the U.S ( Terrorist attacks ) just as Goths, VisaGoths and other tribes began to sack Rome one by one.

Sadly we are in the decline right now, you can see it everywhere. Anti-Americanism, Job Loss, Econmoical Decline. You can see it everyday. Now it wont happen in our life our the next hundred, or two hundred years but its coming.

i feel that america isn't what it used 2 b but i dont think that it will end so suddenly as 100 years. the us hasn't even been around for 300 years. although job loss is high tht shouldnt mean very much as job loss was extreme during the 1930's. the us declining doesnt seem significgant enough at the moment right now to say tht within 100 years the u.s. will have faded into history. and the value of th dollar dropping may actually add to our economy as it brings our currency to be worth less, allowing for companies to keep jobs here, becuase the comparison to say the chinese currency wont be so much of a drastic differnece if our dollar is worth less.

Hello,

I think that the fall of the U.S. will happen very quickly as someone said.

Things evolve much more quickly than they did in Roman time.

Anyway, how could you compare the U.S. with Rome ?

I'm not sure there is a link. As any society in nay time, the U.S. will fall and gradually be replaced by another society. That's where the comparison stops.
