7 out of 10 Americans feel this country is in decline

A recent national poll showed that 7 out of 10 Americans feel this country is in decline.

In a California survey this month, it was 10 out of 10. Most of those that were surveyed felt if things continue in the economy and do not turn around, we are facing our own fallen civilization and that is not acceptable to them.

The California survey, conducted on literate book readers from 25 to 65 years old, showed over 52% feel that “bad government” and “no strong leadership” is the problem. The majority are most interested in employment and the economy.

My new book (now a best seller on Amazon) has some of the solutions at the end of the book to turn the tide and reverse the decline.

My hope is that this book will help to enlighten as well as entertain. It compares what is happening now to what happened in the past. Are we close to becoming another fallen civilization?

I am trying to show the factors that lead to every civilization’s demise and compares these 10 immutable laws to what is happening today.

If the Presidential candidates don’t take up these issues, the people definitely will. We are going into an important election that could change the outcome of our own lives. It helps to find out all we can learn from other past situations, and make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes.

There are certain constants in human history such as:
* All great civilizations fail due to flawed decision making.
* When powerful peoples become weak, there will always be predators gathering for the kill.
* Conversely, predators are easily defeated by successful civilizations”

This can be within our own country as well as outside influences. How do you spot this? The last chapter will give you some answers and may even raise more questions.

History is never dull when you read “Lessons from Fallen Civilizations”.

About the Author:

Larry Kelley’s life was utterly changed by 9/11. On the day after the attacks, on his way to work, he was struck by the sudden realization that World War III had commenced. Like most Americans he desperately wanted to find out who were these people who attacked us, what could ordinary citizens do to join the battle and how can those plotting to kill us in future attacks be defeated. Mr. Kelley has written scores of columns on the dangers of western complacency.
