The clarity of history depicts precisely the inevitability and consequence of developing China. Just as Rome was dwindled away by an in flux of Germanic tribes, America too is becoming inundated by foreign peoples seeking a better life. Just as the late Roman emperors sought to secure Persia so to we try to secure it for ourselves. Americas world is slipping out of its hands into the jaws of China. A conflict is inevitable as China lusts for limited oil and as they continue to usurp markets with their cheap goods. Corporations will follow history and follow the money into China and India; and America will waste away, becoming a fundamentalist haven for the born again evangelicals expounding their melodies on how the Bible predicted the decline and fall of the American empire and the rise of Satanic China. America will be remembered as merely a brief glimmer in the annuals of civilizations and will be forgotten as many other cultures so eloquently described by Durant and Ariel. I predict the conflict to occur in 2034. By that time American positioning in the world will be significantly reduced and China empire obvious.
