This is a special report which includes for the first time “The Dark Age Cycle” which looks into how do empires die. Sometimes they just collapse, yet at other times, civilization also collapses and moves into a Dark Age. This report distinguishes all the historical changes which have taken place and the rise and fall of Empires, Nations, and City-States. This dives into the monetary system and how it was reconstructed in order to ascertain the cycles that are so important to understand.
This report dives into global contagions and illustrates that while people have suddenly see the economy as global today, it has always been that way. This analysis covers modern financial panics in addition to ancient and draws the analysis and common themes which undermine society. It would be nice if we learned as a society from past mistakes as most of us do on a personal level. Every parent warns their child not to touch the flame of a candle. No matter how often we are warned, everyone still was compelled to see for ourselves.
Society lacks that evolution from experience. Hence, collectively we keep sticking our finger into flame expecting somehow a different result. Worse yet, with every financial crisis, nobody ever asks has this taken place before? Was there a solution that previously worked?
Perhaps this is just why history must repeat. We can only learn from our past mistakes on a personal individual level. Society collectively seem incapable of ever retaining such knowledge. Thus, those of us who can see the trend are compelled to watch others repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
