The candle light ritual: fallen societies

It does just require to visit local flea markets here where I am to find the products of fallen societies. The USSR fell over 30 years ago and today still people try to sell old Soviet visor caps at flea markets. These hats have no significant value in the same way as old Soviet medals have no significant value unless they are rare. When the Soviet Union fell people tried to sell their own Soviet properties and some people may have bought these to bring back some nostalgic souvenirs from the former Soviet republics. The history is full of examples of many fallen societies such as ancient Egyptian cultures, the NAZI Germany and so on. It does seem that democratic states have had much better success keeping their societies running longer times. The USA and France among others are good examples. Where shall the world be in next 50 years is a good question.
