    Why Empires collapsed? fall of USSR, decline of USA .British and French empires collapsed?

    Recently I  read in brief of Paul Kennedy's book " Rise and fall of  the Great Powers" Why it happened? Last century we witnessed  collapse of USSR, now American's say USA is on decline.
    Degradation of communities,power hungry groups and dynasties are the factors who decides the fate of system.At present India and China are on rise but Kennedy already predicted that both the nations can not sustain growth and unless inclusive growth and development it is difficult to lead on global scene. India's flawed Democracy, China's authoritarian regime are the weak points within.
    Let us wait and watch

    By studying history, we realize everything in life has a climax and anticlimax. Time has come for those empires to collapse because they have reached their climax. However, what is more dangerous is what is at hand today......the 10 most powerful people on earth harnessing societies. Modern slavery is in the making and it has begun in Europe.

    To answer your question, empires all collapse for one reason: military costs. Standing armies and wars are expensive.

    They overextend themselves. Rome, USSR and USA spent themselves into debt, got soft and couldn't pull out.

    In the case of the USA, it was planned. The currency is based upon debt, rather than things of value, so the debt will always increase until the currency collapses. That was the design and purpose of the private Federal Reserve bank. In the ensuing chaos, things become more malleable, like the chaos of heat in metal brought near or beyond the melting point.

    Congress and the President have also pumped the national debt, accelerating it beyond madness into the realm of nightmares -- now $16.3 and increasing in speed -- headlong over the cliff.

    America is the largest impediment to the New World Order gang -- the one-worlders who want to dominate Earth and to enslave a manageable population of half a billion. And the other 6.5 billion? Murdered by sterility, slow poison, disease, hunger, war and indifference -- an extension of the eugenics programs of the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations.
