Empires (Like the U.S.) Fall When Corruption Becomes Rampant

Proof Humanity NEVER Learns The Lessons Of History: Civilisations Rise and Fall, and ours is no different.
Widespread corruption destroys empires. By way of example, corruption was one of the main causes of the collapse of the Roman Empire:The Praetorian Guard—the emperor’s personal bodyguards—assassinated and installed new sovereigns at will, and once even auctioned the spot off to the highest bidder [and see this]. The political rot also extended to the Roman Senate, which failed to temper the excesses of the emperors due to its own widespread corruption and incompetence. As the situation worsened, civic pride waned and many Roman citizens lost trust in their leadership.
