The success that a nation achieves contains the seed of its own downfall. Prosperity can breed complacency and poor work ethic. High technology can breed breakdown of social systems and end of privacy. Military campaigns can breed subversion of culture. High life expectancy and better law and order can breed a mindset that yearns for total protection. An individualistic culture can breed nihilism and alienation. The desire for liberty and free markets can breed a utopian vision of total freedom and anarchy. Easy availability of avenues for higher education can breed indoctrinated young barbarians.
