Why Do Civilizations fall?

As Americans, we tend to be proud and think we can never be defeated or destroyed.
It does not matter what we face - great storms, war, terrorism, and limited natural resources - we act as if we have nothing to be really concerned with. Our focus is usually on things like entertainment and self-fulfillment. The only problem with this attitude is that it ignores what history teaches us! When we open up the pages of history, we find the stories of great civilizations who come to power and then completely fall and crumble, only to be remembered in the pages of a history book. I think it is a valuable study for every person to take a look at the past civilizations and try to find out why civilizations fall.
To help you begin your study, I am going to point you to a very interesting link:

Limited resources is the main problem. There wouldn't be this kind of stress If everybody got enough to get by comfortably.

It's a simple concept to produce more food and during World War 2 the victory gardens proved it can solve economic trouble.
