The Fall of Rome and Modern Parallels

This short video features the speech of Lawrence Reed, president of the Foundation for Economic Education, which was delivered at the FreedomFest in Las Vegas. He discusses the stark similarities between the reasons why Rome fell and the current state of the United States today. Despite being great political powers, both countries faced economic struggles.

Reed begins his speech by emphasizing the value of having a good personal character. He provides compelling points that can eventually help the US avoid suffering the same disastrous fate of Rome. Hopefully, people who hear this speech will realize that our society needs to consist of men and women of character who will teach future generations in order to have better lives.
