Too big to fail

Every once in a while you hear about a company or organization that is ‘too big to fail’. The thought is they are too powerful, too wealthy, too historical to be allowed to fail.

My guess is many people felt the Mongolian Empire was too big to fail (at one point more than 25% of the worlds known population was part of the Mongolian Empire).

My guess is many people felt the Roman Empire was too big to fail (at one point more than 35% of the worlds known population was part of the Roman Empire).

My guess is many people felt the Qing Empire was too big to fail (at one point more than 36% of the worlds known population was part of the Qing Empire).

No group or organization is too big to fail. Some might be temporarily prolonged for various reasons but if a group doesn’t have a purpose or value, they will be replaced at some point.

The next time you hear someone is ‘too big to fail’ they are probably already on their way down.

Just something to think about

Have a great day!
