It would be wise to watch the patterns continue in Europe, because much of what has happened there soon follows here in the USA.
Stoic Socialism, dead religion, over entitlement, flat economies have caused a decrease in personal ambition and Gross National Product in Europe. More and more there is a tendency to appeal to the United Nations for solutions to personal and national issues that need to be solved from within, not from without. With increased debt and spiritless motivation for independence and provision, the Euro and Europe will continue to fall.
It takes little vision to see that the European pattern could easily become ours in the USA… if it hasn’t already. I believe we are about 40-50 years behind Europe at this point, but the gap is closing more quickly than ever before. By knowing this perhaps it can be partially averted. At least we should know what is happening to us as it happens.
“When it is evening, you say, it will be fair weather: for the heaven is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the heaven is red and lowering. You know how to discern the face of the heaven; but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Jesus
