The fall of a great empire: a flood of immigrants who didn't assimilate, an overstretched army fighting foreign wars, plus terrorist attacks: sound familiar?

September 4

Rome fell SEPTEMBER 4, 476AD.

In the centuries preceding, Rome was overrun with illegal immigrants:Visigoths, Franks, Anglos, Saxons, Ostrogoths, Burgundians, Lombards and Vandals.

They first assimilated, many working as servants, but soon came so fast they did not learn the Latin language.

Though militarily superior and marching on advanced road systems, the highly trained Roman Legions were strained fighting conflicts worldwide, and eventually troops had to be brought home from the frontiers, such as Britain.

Attila the Hun committed terrorist attacks, wiping out whole cities.

Rome had a trade deficit, having outsourced its grain production to North Africa, and when the Vandals captured that area, Rome did not have the resources to retaliate.

"Bread and the Circus!" Citizens of Rome were kept distracted with violent entertainment in the Coliseum and Circus Maximus, living on welfare and free bread.

One Roman commented:

"Those who live at the expense of the public funds are more numerous than those who provide them."

Tax collectors were "more terrible than the enemy."

Rome was crippled by huge government bureaucracies and enormous public debt.

A history of court favoritism, infidelity, exposure of unwanted infants, perverted bathhouses, and sexual immorality led 5th-Century historian Salvian to write:

"O Roman people be ashamed...Let nobody think otherwise, the vices of our bad lives have alone conquered us."

 

Is Mosque a sign of tolerance or conquest?
