How Countries End Up...
I came across this quote on the internet today about how countries progress and it seems awfully close to what we are witnessing. Extremes of political dogma whether left or right are dangerous and are similar in that both result in the masses being controlled.
You tend to find countries with the most freedom start having it removed and those with the least freedom eventually get more...even if it takes years...
Here's the quote anyhow...
Stage 1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
Stage 2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
Stage 3. From courage to liberty;
Stage 4. From liberty to abundance;
Stage 5. From abundance to complacency;
Stage 6. From complacency to apathy;
Stage 7. From apathy to dependence;
Stage 8. From dependence back into bondage;
