Dr Pipes

What is happening in Europe now is not unlike the migrations of the Goths Vandals and Huns that destroyed the political power of the Roman Empire and brought it to an end in 476 AD and dragged Europe into the dark ages! And it was the end of the classical civilizations of antiquity

Another scenario? If we are to believe Henri Pirenne then it was the Arab/Muslim invasions in the 7th century and not the above barbarian invasions that ended the Roman civilization and dragged Europe into the dark ages! Same outcome

Moral of the story? Not just Europeans but here in the US we should wake up and realize that the Western civilization could be heading to another dark age
