I think all societies collapse, even ones based on reason
and designed during an age of enlightenment.
From: Kate Troy
If, however, a society
was based on principles of physical and spiritual liberty and provided
all citizens with education and therefore the opportunity to succeed,
and a feeling for community, then the culture that comes from such a
society will invariably be impressive and depending upon the level of
love and respect the citizens hold for the original and continuing
principles, perhaps invincible.
