A man once said back in the day “To solve our most difficult problems we must radically change our thinking.”(Stephen Covey) They fall because of many different reasons and problems.

When you are depth people can not pay taxes which causes people to have to move. When more and more people start to move the country starts to lose a ton of people then the whole country falls. People lose their country when they go into a small war or a big war and they lose. Once they lose that country is then taken over by the other one. Once the country is taken over everything starts to fall. You can have a good country but if you have a bad leader it won’t turn out to be a good country. Bad leaders make choices for themselves and not others. The whole country depends on what type of leader you have. People now know the 3 main reasons why societies fall. To keep your society from falling to keep mistakes from happening like they did in the past.
