The Essential Causes of Rome’s Decline — Will Durant

Liberty Letters Quote of the Day, Will Durant

A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars.

Will Durant, “Caesar and Christ.”
