Is a return to the Dark Ages in the horizon based on a prophetic wisdom verse and report by Yellen?
The Chicago Tribune -Insider article titled: US GDP shrinks for the first time since pandemic hit, reported
“Still, the report signals the booming expansion seen through 2021 won’t repeat itself. Growth was expected to ease as stimulus effects waned and the country got closer to full health, but the data reveals the slowdown was much more severe than anticipated.”
Another article titled Yellen says economy can expect challenges, reported her statement by the US Secretary of the Treasury”
With “large negative shocks inevitable”, she said, policymakers have learned from the Great Recession that it’s imperative to exit economic downturns “as quickly as possible.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse and what caused the dark ages in history for interested readers to discern.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, and what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. (Google)
Generally, the Dark Ages referred to the period of time ushered in by the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
What’s My Point?
If we discern the above Pickles cartoon wish to return to the Good Old Days when he did not have to get up from his chair reading the news and had to help his wife fold the extra bedsheets, perhaps the days of having extras on hand are in the near future.
My point is the Dark Ages period in history is generally believed to have occurred after the fall of the Roman Empire which if we discern in comparison to the present state of a repeat war occurring in Europe.
The USA present printing dollars to fund a repeat Lend Lease agreement same as in WW!!, perhaps we all need to prepare for WW!! standards of living to repeat in the USA when having anything by bare necessities in USA households was common.
In My Opinion
The USA has been compared in our contemporty times as a superpower similar to the Roman Empire which failed.
In my opinion, and being young and still remembering food stamps in WW!!, it is very hard not to be pessimistic about current events repeating from today’s times to the good old days standard of living caused be the same reasons the Roman Empire and the Greek experiment in a Democrat Republic failed.
As for what is the solution, all I can discern is what King Solomon observed and experienced 3000 years ago just before his Kingdom failed should perhaps read his entire Ecclesiastes Chapter One.

Should we discern and compare the Economists both optimistic and pessimistic views in the articles or King Solomon’s dark articles observations which obviously have never accomplished anything to straighten out what is crooked (Verse 1:15) in recorded history because we just cannot seem to wise up.
Is it perhaps reasonable to discern that the main reason we humans cannot seem to wise up is we no longer teach youth King Solomon’s wisdom because it is illegal to teach anything in the Bible in USA public secular schools?
