Countdown for The End of the American Empire
A slideshow presentation
Civilizations are born, grow, age and die, analogous to humans. The average length of most empires is the same length as the cycle of planet Pluto (the undertaker god). Poet as prophet Yeats, in his book, A Visionsays that a civilization goes through 28 phases. For the U.S., the Final Phase, “The Fool”, began with Trump’s Inauguration. Yeats descriptions of every phase are amazingly precise fits to U.S. history.
Looking at the end of the British Empire, we have clues for what is to come “at the end.” When it ends, Yeats predicts that a longing for unity leads to some new oneness. The U.S. can become “us.”
