Lets at least give some credit to the growing presence of christianity/catholicism in the dark ages, many of whom were adament to collect and preserve as much information as possible, and also acted as a sort of "umbrella" haven for many populations during those chaotic times.

For pete's sake it was the fall of the Roman Empire that caused the dark ages. The fact that so many people had only tiny bits of the wider puzzle (math, geography, and more. Scholars struggle to solve middle school problems) for hundreds of years caused the longing that created the Rennasance!

The fact that Christianmonks preserved literature in spite of it all is a bonus, especially to historians. Because otherwise we would have lost more history.

The dark ages happened because the Roman Empire descended into chaos. Christianity only took hold 300+/500+ years after so it could not have been the cause of that lost knowledge. Go read a history book.

The Dark ages were a myth. Also, Rome didn't fall so much as it transitioned into what is more recognizable as todays geopolitical Europe. The Comitatus states are the cultural heirs of Roman Culture and Western Civilization. Also, many Historians consider The later Roman Empire to be culturally stagnant when compared to "barbarian" and Eastern Cultures.

You aren't wrong about the dark ages partially being caused by the fall of the roman empire but the empire was christian at the time of it's fall and was actively trying to spread it. Also the dark ages went on for some 1000 years after the fall of the roman empire not all of that is caused by their empire falling.

Technically not true, Ireland's corporation tax is (legally) about half of the rate in most other EU countries meaning a lot of companies set up their EU bases in Ireland, so yuo dont have to have the same tax rates. Just this deal in specific seems to be dodgy but I dont have all the info on this deal so im not sure.

They don't have to have the same tax rates. But it's illegal in the EU for countries to give favourable tax deals to individual companies, which is what Ireland did for Apple.

My point is there is no fixing america right now, and as someone who is sick, I can barely get my pills as it is, granted it probably won't last long so if it comes down to it I don't mind if the whole thing burns down

>can and does are separate things m8
Lots of things can work well for a lot of people but most of the time they don't, you either deal with what you got or push for change but more often than not it just makes it worse. But that's a convo for another day. Anyways, lots of cheap alternatives DO exist, but they are suppressed by the industry.

Everything a government does can fail. What's certain is that nothing will change if you never try to change things for fear of failing.
