Over the last 5,000 years, at least a dozen civilizations achieved superpower status — a level of dominance far superior to every other nation at the time. Imagine how many people must have reflected upon their accomplishments, thinking their civilization was the ultimate achievement of humankind and the final socio-political solution. Yet, like every dominant civilization before them, their great society failed.
Analysis reveals a hidden truth. Civilizations have a lifecycle, just as do all living things. Similar to taking one's health for granted, a feeling of invincibility causes a flourishing nation to drift away from the recipe that made it successful. Indifference and overindulgence compromise the nation's social infrastructure, rendering it fractured and divided. Eventually, the once impervious civilization becomes vulnerable. If it doesn't collapse from its own weight, it succumbs to lesser forces acting upon it. Usually there is a struggle, but the outcome is certain with the once dominant nation being reduced to but a mention in recorded history.
We are committing the same errors of indulgence and irreverence for the recipe that has led to our nation's unimaginable success. A false understanding of human nature has caused Congress, the Executive Branch and the Judiciary to adopt misguided public policies and ill-conceived social programs for over 70 years. This false view of human nature is the reason why so many cracks have developed throughout our nation's foundation. Our nation's enormous debt, our failed education system, the breakdown of the family, our problem prison population and venomous political climate are unmistakable indications that the cracks are getting more numerous and more severe every day. If we continue our present course, even the most optimistic analysis projects that America's reign as the world's dominant nation will come to an end sometime within this century — if not in our lifetime, in the lifetime of our children.
A recent breakthrough in understanding human nature reveals how to stop the decline and fortify America. The Patriot Party was formed to insure this knowledge is applied properly and at once.
Ten essential goal-sets have been deduced from this new information. These are the "Planks" comprising the Patriot Party Platform. If we implement these Planks (sets of essential goals), we will put America back on the road to health and longevity, insuring it retains its position as dominant nation and leader of the world.
