This and That: Is the Sequence Beginning?

Greetings, my fellow Americans. Interesting what Mr. Tytler predicted about democracies. Is this what is happening to our dear country in the 21st Century? Alexander Tytler, an 18th Century Scottish economist said, “Democracies last about 200 years and progress through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith

From spiritual faith to great courage,

From courage to liberty,

From liberty to abundance,

From abundance to selfishness,

From selfishness to complacency,

From complacency to apathy,

From apathy to dependency,

From dependency back again into bondage.”
