Something I Just Thought About

I was replying to a post someone left me, in which we were dialoguing on the soul death of America. In my reply I mentioned that Martin Luther King warned about the spiritual death of America. It then struck me, isn't that what empires do as some sort of ritual? They assassinate prophets and then canonize them....the Romans did it with Jesus, America did it with King. It doesn't lead to any victory though, empires die nonetheless. It is an interesting observation however.
