Comparatively, our position in the world, and our advances in technology, medicine, and wealth are equal to that of the Roman Empire circa 753BC -1461AD. They were so far advanced in all these areas, at the time of their peak, that the rest of the world was equivalent to third world countries of today. Given the advanced state of the Roman Empire in the 1400's and our advanced state of today, the similarities are quite astonishing. AID's today, Black Plague of yesterday, Charlemagne, a Frank, who became Emperor 800AD signed a treaty that gave away a large part of the Empire. Treaties about to be signed by Obama will give the UN control over our industrial sector by way of Environmental Regulatory control through Climate Change nonsense.Answer Question

Maybe if we stopped trying to be an empire? England got too full of herself "Sun never sets on the British Empire" and all that. Now that they have stopped claiming and conquering they seem to be doing alright.
Of course I'm no history buff so could be wrong.

History will always repeat itself just in a different century of times. Studying history and it's people will at times deter mistakes that will come about.

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them."

Sure, tell that to the Iraqia and Afghanis. Or Korea, VietNam. We love to butt our noses into others business and tell them how they should do things.
