The Ochelli Effect: Ends of Empire Rome and The West – Mike Swanson (12/11/2018)

I will be live on The Ochelli Effect at 8:00 PM EST.  To listen go here.

Some things I plan on talking about:

New Book – The Origins of the Roman Empire: The Roman Army and Political Power by Dennis Swanson

Old Book – The Evolution of Civilizations by Carroll Quigley

“The dividing lines in this new world of unrest are no longer simply those along a left-right continuum, with conservatives pitted against liberals. Those battles still exist, here and elsewhere, but increasingly the forces of destabilization are coming from other angles and other directions. They are driven by what Ivo H. Daalder, president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and U.S. ambassador to NATO under President Barack Obama, described as “a population that is increasingly upset with how 20, 30, 40 years of globalization have changed the internal dynamics of society.”
