The path of civilization

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through this 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 complaceny to apathy;
  • from apathy to dependence;
  • from dependency back again into bondage.
