    I've been in accidents with US citizens. None has ever fled the scene of the accident. Same for my family and friends. But I know one illegal alien who fled the scene of an accident.

    So to the best of my knowledge an American is less likely to flee the scene of an accident than an illegal alien.

    It's great that ridiculous and unverifiable claims made from a personal opinion with a clear agenda aren't to be taken seriously.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I have to ask. What do you teach? Is it history? Please, for the love of Buddha, tell me it's not history. Tell me you majored in something that doesn't require you to think in a global context. Because only a really ****ty history teacher would think that the only way for a society to die is because it's being attacked from the outside. Not only that but an even ****tier history teacher would think that if a society is armed, it's less likely to die out. How did that work for the Mongols, Romans and Huns? There are more examples of civilizations and societies having died out due to oppressive conservative governments than from being too liberalized. You might as well be telling us that a conservative society won't die out because it's got God on it's side. Not only is your answer devoid of any logical argument it's actually ridiculous.

    You sound like an existentialist. If you lived in California you would believe me.

    Just some examples from across time: American Puritans, Franco's Spain, Pinochet's Chile.

    All socially conservative. All died out relatively quickly.

    Can you tell us why in your opinion oppresive conservative governments die out so often? China is a conservative oppressive country. It's thriving.
