The Decline and Fall of Empires with CJ Kilmer – Epi-3244
Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 2:22:44 — 40.8MB)
Today CJ Kilmer returns to The Survival Podcast to discuss the decline and eventual fall of empires. We also discuss the patterns we see no repeating themselves in the present day and what it says about our probable future in America.
CJ Killmer holds BA & MA degrees in history and taught college history for 16 years. In 2014, he started a show called The Dangerous History Podcast, a show which covers a wide variety of topics from a libertarian-anarchist perspective. The show began as a hobby, grew into a side-hustle, and in 2022 CJ walked away from academia to pursue independent content creation full-time.
CJ has been a smartass, iconoclast, and a cynical questioner & critic of authority since he was a kid. Naturally, these attitudes have influenced his take on history. If you’ve been looking for a history podcast that combines deep dives & radical takes, and that DOESN’T just repeat the same Establishment propaganda narratives you’ve been bombarded with since elementary school, you’ve come to the right place!

Great guest. Have him on more. History is fascinating especially when the guest provides correct definitions we use. Never thought of our country.as an empire.
Great guest and complementary to a book I just finished, Peter Zeihan’s “The End of the World Is Just The Beginning”. His thing is also the end of empire, but his take is that the US will drop our empire and withdraw to just NATO and maybe UK let the rest of the world burn. This doesn’t disagree with this guest, but may just be a step in the fall.
What about California water needs? Not so sure they could keep it going without water from the East.
Another way to look how empires change is they can be non border corporate and banking empires as that is currently the case right now. Washington is just a whore to the lobbyists and the lobbyists are owned by the elite.
Hmm, sounds like what happened to Crimea when they chose to become part of Russia. Crimea got most of its water from Ukraine, instead of selling the water to Crimea which would of been find with Crimea/Russia, Ukraine literally poured concreate into the canals that took water there.
Now there is a war in that region. It isn’t the only cause but it is one of many causes the MSM won’t tell you about.
never new that Ukraine blocked the canals with concrete, thanks.
