Why is NASA studying the rise and fall of civilizations? Perhaps I missed something. How does the National Air and Space Administration justify spending our tax dollars on a study of the rise and fall of civilizations? Do we know of any alien civilizations out there in danger of imminent demise? Do we have a colony on the moon that is about to become the next great empire? Just the existence of the study suggests that this administration will do anything to justify further limits on what people can own, eat breath and consume.
The fall of Rome was about a lack of resources. Yep, not rocket science. The barbarians did not have the resources and Rome did. So the barbarians took the resources from Rome. Putin did not own the Crimea, so he took it. The fact that the US has had increasing food production for the last 100 years and a population that grows at a snails pace means nothing when you want to take what people have and give it to people that did not earn it. How on earth did NASA become a tool for propaganda? Is anyone else appalled by this?
NASA and the federal government are taking our tax dollars and using it in studies to take away more of our hard earned income. It is shameful. It has nothing to do with the mission of NASA. If they really want to know what kills societies, it is bad leadership. Perhaps whoever ordered this study should look in the mirror and resign before bad leadership kills our great nation. Our leaders need to spend less time in never never land and come back to earth.
