Civilisations 200 year cycle

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:

  • From bondage to spiritual faith
  • From spiritual faith to great courage
  • From courage to liberty
  • From liberty to abundance
  • From abundance to complacency
  • From complacency to apathy
  • From apathy to dependence
  • From dependence back again into bondage.

Professor Alexander Tyler

Where are we now?  I believe there are some countries in this world who have seen all bar one of these progessions in the past 100 years … not the 200 years that Prof. Tyler believed.  Are we now in an age of apathy leading to dependence? or have we progressed even through that and are now on the verge of bondage once again?

About Norse Stormr

I am heathen. My soul is ancient. I am a warrior but I do not bear arms. I believe we are here as guardians of Midgard, not as despoilers of Jord. I follow the Old Ways, the gods of the north. I am not part of any organised group or affiliation - I prefer to be alone, just as a wolf is until they find their mate. My beliefs are primal and dark. I am a Healer and Mentor - working with the Universe to live in balance. View all posts by Norse Stormr
