Studies show that an empire only survives an average of 250 years. Did you know ?

To put that into context, the world’s oldest person recently died at 124; thus, she lived nearly half the lifespan of most empires. Most Americans are unaware of this small but crucial statistic, which can tell a lot about the future of our country. It’s high time for Americans to face the painful reality that our time as a global superpower may be limited, and it’s time to explore how to slow down what, frankly, is inevitable at some point – that domination global US not persist indefinitely. This may be difficult to grasp and accept, but it has never been true for any civilization in the past, and it never will be for any society in the future.

When we consider historical empires, it should be noted that the vast majority of Americans do not consider the United States to be an empire in the classical sense, despite the fact that many people around the world do. However, for the purposes of this article, the United States, while modern in every sense of the word, does qualify as an empire.

Since World War II, the United States has been primarily concerned with spreading democracy and freedom across the world, viewing itself as a sort of global liberator. In reality, the United States maintains over 800 military outposts and special operations groups spread across the globe. This is a key consideration in determining the place of the United States in the pantheon of ancient empires since, like those that preceded them, it was primarily interested in expanding its influence and power. This is not something I mean as a criticism but rather as a contextual point. However, it is this overshoot in the pursuit of continued power and influence that often leads to empires withering away, albeit slowly.

In 2026, the United States of America, founded in 1776, will celebrate its 250th anniversary. We are fast approaching the 250th anniversary of the fall of most previous civilizations. With continued internal unrest ranging from race to financial disparity to political tribalism, and other countries gradually drifting away from the orbit of US-led supremacy, it seems the tides are turning against we. I fear that this simple statistic will soon become a reality that alters the course of our lives. After all, many citizens and politicians would celebrate our downfall, unaware of the perilous impact it would have on freedoms they believe they do not have. I don’t know if it will be a huge international conflict, a financial catastrophe or a civil war that will bring about the collapse of the United States, but I believe that learning the lessons of the past is essential if we are to slow the inevitable .

As strange as it may sound, perhaps Chinese history and culture could teach our country something. Why did China survive for 5,000 years? What have they discovered that the other great empires of the world do not have? They have seen empires such as the United States rise and fall, and they have seen other dynasties rise and fall. If we want to defend our nation, I believe we have to learn from our adversaries.

Being part of an ancient civilization brings a number of benefits. The main thing I noticed about China is that it has a distinct and complicated cultural value system that is embedded in the individuals who make up the country. The value system that defines what it is to be Chinese and what a Chinese society looks like has had an unusually long period of time to form. Their desire for knowledge and skills, along with a cautious commitment not to expand militarily, proved crucial to their persistence as a country.

China is clearly interested in expanding its global dominance, but more in economic and financial terms than in terms of real resources. They seem to be primarily militarily focused on their own backyard while gradually advancing through technology the ability to have global military reach if needed. This is in stark contrast to the United States, which has strived to expand globally to as many places as possible with a raw workforce.

All past empires seem to have struggled due to their exclusive focus on global military superiority. However, I think we need to rethink this. I think we need an ultra-advanced army that’s not so dispersed, with the capabilities to be anywhere in the world when needed. Additionally, we should focus on financial and economic dominance through trade, global finance, and other monetary measures.

The United States has important lessons to learn, including the fact that it is not too late to save our republic. It has been shown that if we learn from history, a great nation can endure and outlast others; the crucial question is whether we will do it before it is too late.
