Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.

Family wealth dies in 3 generations.... heard the sentiment before

An essay by John Bagot Glubb. A man who lived the fall of the British Empire.

As numerous points of interest have arisen in the course of this essay, I close with a brief summary, to refresh the reader’s mind.

We do not learn from history because our studies are brief and prejudiced.

In a surprising manner, 250 years emerges as the average length of national greatness.

This average has not varied for 3,000 years. Does it represent ten generations?

The stages of the rise and fall of great nations seem to be:

The Age of Pioneers (outburst)
The Age of Conquests
The Age of Commerce
The Age of Affluence
The Age of Intellect
The Age of Decadence.
Decadence is marked by:

Defensiveness
Pessimism
Materialism
Frivolity
An influx of foreigners
The Welfare State
A weakening of religion.
Decadence is due to:

Too long a period of wealth and power
Selfishness
Love of money
The loss of a sense of duty.
The life histories of great states are amazingly similar, and are due to internal factors.

Their falls are diverse, because they are largely the result of external causes.

History should be taught as the history of the human race, though of course with emphasis on the history of the student’s own country.
