They blamed everyone except themselves

There are many reasons for the fall of civilizations, nations, and companies. Whom are we going to blame? Kings, governments, systems, geography, or history? Historians offer varying lists of criteria for the fall of civilizations, but most of the lists include the following important factors: a large population, food scarcity, a centralized government, controlling religion, and a hardworking and overtaxed population. The most obvious factor that has contributed to the demise is that those who lived in their ivory towers were in complete detachment from the people and environment around them.

Extracting more wealth and exercising greater power governed their behavior. Consequently, all of them were destined to fail and fall. Failure does not fall from the sky, and the sky does not rain failure seeds, it is human-made.
