"Fall of Civilizations"

"Fall of Civilizations" is a fascinating series of history documentaries available free on youtube. The first episode is called:

Roman Britain -

The Work of Giants


"It's often said that history repeats itself. We're told that if we study its lessons, we can avoid making the same mistakes twice, but I think that happens a lot less than people realize. Events are so complex that nothing ever really happens the same way twice, but just occasionally in the flow of history, you do get these eddies and whirlpools, where it really does feel like people keep doing the same things over and over, like the rerun of a movie we've seen before."

Other documentaries in the series cover the Akkadians, Assyrians, Han Dynasty, Greenland Vikings, Easter Island, the Sumerians, Maya, Inca, Aztec, Byzantium (Eastern Roman Empire) and others.

I doubt that the other civilizations allowed(or even invited) their enemies to infiltrate their countryside,welcome them,feed them,let them suck them dry financially,kill them slowly,take over their largest cities and decide that philosophically they are racist and must suffer for it.

I never heard that story about the other civilizations.But I'm seeing it for myself today here in America.
