Temple at Tikal

The complete collapse of a civilization as advanced as the Mayans makes one wonder how the US will fall from hegemonic dominance.

  1. Awesome picture. I have been in Chichen Itza twice. Tikal is on my list too.
    The Maya fell because the had consumed too many resources and the Romans had a too high defense budget. Both apply to US but won’t cause our demise.

    • “Demise” is another question entirely. I don’t suspect the US will disintegrate as a country. However, I don’t see any reason to suspect we will be immune from the fall from dominance that not one previous great power seems to have been spared.
