People assume that every great power must fall. They're not considering that the uniting factor in all these collapses is losing territory. England lost its colonies. Russia lost it's satellite states. Rome had the territory it conquered re-captured by Germanic tribes. Those circumstances don't apply to America. Almost all of our territory is fully incorporated. Nobody's looking to take them from us and they're not going to leave. (despite what you may hear) Obviously our economy is still vulnerable to crashing, so I'm not saying we couldn't stop being a superpower. But we're not going to "collapse" like these other empires.

I was thinking about this the other day, they won't quite yet but eventually they will. Every super power does, like Persia and Rome but they usually last longer than the US has been a superpower

"As powerful as ancient Rome"
Please tell me America doesn't actually think that? Not even the height of the British Empire was as powerful as ancient Rome.
Nor Russia's height of power, nor Spain, France, or Sweden.

Egypt and Persia, maybe.

To be fair, Rome didn't have jet planes, tanks, nucelar missiles, missile cruisers, aircraft carriers, fully automatic machine guns... But in comparison, America does in fact have the strongest military in the world and in history. However, if you were to compare some of Ancient Rome's developments by modern day currency. What like a single ship of simple condiment like garum would be worth millions of US dollars.

But if you ask me, Rome was far more disciplined and respectable militarily. Not as powerful but far more respectable. Especially since it faced some of the most brutal of threats the world has ever seen. Gaulatea, Britannia, Carthagos, the Greeks, the Egyptians.

Although I realized exactly what you said in the description a few days ago while studying Ancient Rome, the USA is missing one crucial part of what led to Ancient Rome's downfall. Diseases. Sure there's Cancer, Aids, Diabeetus, and some others, but Rome had several crippling plagues that destroyed their society. They had troubles maintaining their military, driving their economy into the ground, as they had to pay for Germanic soldiers to guard their fronts. There were other results of these diseases, of course.

You also forgot how the whole Christianity thing alienated Rome form all of its outlying provinces. Before hand Rome was real tolerant of other religions cause they just had to accept the emperor as a god and polytheism is basically the same everywhere it is developed. But then Christianity was adopted by Constantine and the whole thing was screwed up. So when all the Germanic people began to flood into Rome they were much more alienated than other Germans and Celts form centuries past who were absorbed into the empire.

Rome gave the world plumbing and oil. America is plumbing the world out of oil.

That's the problem with with being the top country. It always falls eventually.

I;ve lived in the US for the past 5 years. Before that, I was in Germany.
I can tell you right now that internally America is no longer top dog. Perhaps their military is, but success of a country is measured from more than how well they impose their will on other countries.
Right now, I would guess the top country is likely one of the Scandinavian countries. Maybe Norway or Sweden

''What are you talking about? America's not gonna be destroyed! ''
''Never? Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed. Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours? How much longer do you think your country will last? Forever?''

"You're a shameful opportunist. What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet then to live on your knees"
"You have it backwards. it's better to live on your feet then to die on your knees"

Nah. Almost an impossibility. World is too different to ancient Rome, no great plagues, an extremely high and urbanised population, short communication and travel times, nationalism and a ever growing indifference to religion. Leaders aren't really corrupt or incompetent either, people just want to sound intelligent by complaining.

All is well. Assuming a grand new religion isn't formed, a destructive plague or a Venetian sneak attack.

I'll try to be nice.

Define "natural healing" because I'd rather not die from a minor cut on my foot from an infection. Antibiotics only work with an immune system, not take over. I don't actually think there is chemicals that have replaced the immune system. Natural healing doesn't work.

No...no i think its fairly less corrupt. Quality of life is certainly better, much along with civil liberties and such. Can you really have a corrupt dictatorship though? Single leaders can't really be "corrupt" as its absolute control, they don't answer to anyone. I spose it depends on your defintion of corrupt.

Yeah i'm just going to say thats retarded. China has corrupt leadership, so does pretty much every poor country. Infact there is actually a UN index on it. America's government isn't corrupt in a damaging way (individuals may be), its just deeply flawed for a 21st century electorate. Two polarised parties with extremely bias news sources and a government that can be divided into different parties. In my country, there is multiple parties and the news sources are generally unbias. You can't spend money during elections either, there is strict limits on it. Each political party gets 3 5 minutes advertisements on TV or so. And a parlimentarian system means you can't have a divided house.

Yeah, you're missing the point. The Byzantine empire was crippled (admittedly with help from a centuries on off conflict with the Zoroastrian Persians) by the creation of Islam. They human waved them to losing all their territories outside Anatolia and the balkans. So come up with something like that, not Scientology.

Define false war. But i doubt that and i doubt the desertion rate is very high.
But i'll guess a good thing stopping that would be the Atlantic ocean and the many heavily armed countries inbetween America and Afghanistan...which isn't actually populated by Arabs.

I would not compare America to Ancient Rome. Rome was far more awesome than America is.
