The patently cynical declaration of a national state of emergency by President Donald Trump (aka *45) offers a teachable moment on history, politics and empire.

The Rot of Empire began with this Duopoly, and will end with its (Duopoly) demise.
It seems most nations that grow.big.and powerful enough to be called empires get old and senile and rot and eventually die.
Yes, and the United States is the last, with the majority of it’s people suffering from extreme dementia, brought on by the unwavering support of the Status Quo Duopoly.
