"Call out the border guards, the kingdom is crumbling". These words were part of a song written and performed in the early 1970's. The name of the song was "The Great American Eagle Tragedy". This Bear still has the vinyl.
Of course, it was a reference to America at that time.....involved in a foreign war, not very well-respected by other countries, a lot of dissent on the home front, a lot of us-versus-them division in the homes of the country.
Twenty-five (25) years later we haven't "crumbled". Over these years we have seen all kinds of problems, issues, "events that changed the world', etc. but we are still here, plodding on.
If you listen to some of the media, if you read some of the threads and posts in Cyburbia, if you watch some of the movies, if you listen to some of the songs.....they all seem to indicate that our own version of the Roman Empire is about to topple.
What do you think? Are we "in for it" in the next twenty-five (25) years or will it be another round of the same-old, same-old?
