How can lessons from the fall of Rome help us navigate today’s political landscape? Jeremy Ryan Slate is back on the 365 Driven podcast to explore the striking parallels between ancient Rome and modern America. Jeremy holds a master's degree in Roman History and he brings his expertise to this episode to draw parallels to modern America and the lessons we can learn from Rome’s fall. Jeremy kicks off by examining the pivotal changes of 1913, including the introduction of the income tax, the 17th Amendment, and the Federal Reserve Act, and their lasting impact on American politics. Jeremy then dives into the significance of emperor worship and propaganda in Rome's transition from a republic to an empire, and shows how these historical events provide a perspective on our current political struggles. Jeremy then journeys through the extensive history of Rome, from its founding in 753 BC to the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD, and beyond to the Eastern Empire's collapse in 1453. Understanding Rome's evolution from kingdom to republic to empire offers rich insights into the factors that led to its decline, such as poor leadership, economic turmoil, and military crises.  You will learn about the decline of the Western Roman Empire and its financial and political woes, echoing modern federalism in the United States. Evaluating the stories of key figures like the Gracchi brothers, Gaius Marius, Lucius Cornelius Sulla, and Julius Caesar, we can extract valuable lessons on reform, conflict, and power struggles. Additionally, Jeremy touches on the relevance of Roman history in today's social media-driven discussions and underscores the importance of community involvement and independent thought in navigating contemporary politics. Tune in for a compelling exploration of history that resonates powerfully with our present.

In this episode, Tony Whatley speaks about business cults and the lack of integrity in the personal development industry. Topics covered include: Alpha Male Bootcamps Women’s Health & Wellness cults Sales Training groups (especially car sales backgrounds) Flex and Flash gurus (selling the hope of lifestyle) Fitness gurus on steroids Business Cults Machiavellian tactics Cult Leadership Tactics. Here are the 10 common identifiers usually found within a cult. 1. The leader is charismatic and attracts attention. Usually has a level of intrigue or mystery about themselves. Can be unpredictable at times. They'll sometimes label themselves as prophets or that they have almost God-like characteristics or skills. 2. The leader knows how to grow an audience of followers. They understand that it's easier to get people to join when they are in a financial struggle or they feel lonely. 3. There is a defined business model that generates huge profits for the leader, and some of the Lieutenants that report directly to him or her. There are usually defined levels within the membership, starting from a low-priced base, a midrange level, and a top level. Each of these levels seems more prestigious than the level below it, and serve to make members aspire to level up (thus, spend more) 4. The psychology of "Us vs Them" is deployed heavily within the organization. The leader teaches the members to distrust anyone outside of the group. The leader makes the members feel they are part of an elite private club, and that they are better than other people outside of the club. Think about how odd this is, especially if you understand most in the group are struggling or lonely, not actually "elite". 5. The leader introduces "insider speak" within the community. These are trite little phrases or sayings that are often repeated by the leader, and show up in the external words and writings of the members. This insider speak is a way of signaling to other group members that you're in the club. It's the "IYKYK" handshake. 6. Members are manipulated to remain in the club through gained notoriety and acknowledgment within the club. They are led to believe they are better members if they contribute more money and time to the group. They are made to believe they are part of something much bigger than themselves, and that it's unsafe to leave the group. People fear the potential backlash of leaving, so they remain. 7. The leader accepts no criticism, and dissent is punished publicly. Naysayers or skeptics are removed immediately, by shunning or banning them. Those who remain in the group are encouraged to no longer associate or support former members. On social media, they'll block or unfriend you. A former member's stellar reputation may experience a smear campaign, especially if they are a whistle-blower. 8. Each cult has regular gatherings and ceremonies. These are opportunities to publicly praise the best members, encourage more donations or leveling-up ranks by investing more, and to allow the members to visually see they aren't alone. Expect "insider speak" in most member conversations, especially from the leader on stage. 9. The leader eventually earns enough to invest in real estate, a formal gathering place or compound. A place where they can teach others to enroll more members, have private gatherings, and indoctrinate their beliefs into members and staff. 10. The leader would never dare to reveal these tactics above to their members, as they profit from the low awareness of others. Comments or feedback? Find Tony on Instagram @365driven

Tony, I appreciate the time, value, you put into each and every episode! The personal connection you create with each and every person is truly inspiring! Even when the other person/people don't see there true potential! Yet you do, the way YOU can cut through the layers, an Oh (there it is I SEE YOU) why are you hiding, what is holding you back, why are you doubting your self? These are just a few reasons why YOU are going to IMPACT millions of people and change LIVES! even the slow to act/follow threw. Thankyou for being a LIGHT in a world full of darkness, uncertainty and disbelief. Keep pushing as you will only grow STRONGER!

Thank you Heather Hake for being on the 365Driven podcast! Thank you Tony for having Heather on! On my journey of personal growth, I'm realizing I have fears/self doubting thoughts/beliefs. As much as I want to have my own shop, I know I'm not the right person at this point! There's other knowledge I need to learn 1st, I also need to implement showing up every day, stop allowing other thoughts and distractions get in my way!

That was A Truly eye opener Episode! Talk about complacency in A relationship. Guy's do fall into that Persona and Women do as well, We get so cought up in work and providing, we get lost/over look what brought or attacked us together in the 1st place! Yes some people just aren't meant to be together. Although if you are and have let your self fallen into that slump, recognize it and step back up!

Powerful episode! I've tried meditation before, don't feel that I've hit that point of my mind being empty so to say focusing on one thing. The floating meditation sounds entreating! Definitely something to look into! Thank you Ariel Garten for providing valuable insight, tips and suggestions and for being on the 365 Driven podcast! Thank You Tony!

Killer episode, Your Right Tony Whatley, Sean Whalen is definitely good at Stirring the Emotional pot! I don't even know where to start! For me, yes there is emotions, Tragic events and there uncomfortable to think about much less talk about! Even though it might just be the place I need to start. Thankyou for everything you do!
