    Fall of the Old Kingdom
    Egypt has gone through three main periods of time called the Old Kingdom, the Middle Kingdom, and the New Kingdom. Many lessons can be learned from kingdom’s rise and decline. The fall of the Old Kingdom started when the pharaoh Pepy 2 came to reign around 2200 BCE. The three mistakes that we can benefit from of Old Kingdom’s collapse were a lethal drought, importance of economic stability, and the power of greed.
    Egypt as well as Mesopotamia went through a severe drought from 2200 to 2150 BCE, in which a 140-year famine was followed afterwards known as the Intermediate period. The lesson that can be learned here is to prepare for the worst weather conditions and know the climate and geography of the place you are living in. If the Egyptians had planned their future it would have been smart to foresee a possibility of the Nile having low floods. To prepare for an event like this they could have traveled to other destinations with fertile ground and a water supply, or saved livestock and water for this situation. The final lesson learned is to be prepared for and aware of your geographic location.
    A strong economy has always been a significant contribution to the worth a culture has. The pharaoh’s absolute power was lost and ruined from five centuries of land grants and scribes receiving rewards. All these other scribes and officials took power in to their own hands from material they owned creating an economy the pharaoh could not control and afford. This lesson educates us on the meaning of a strong and trustable economy, which has still not been created.
    The last mistake of Egypt’s downfall was the greed of people in power. There was much jealousy of absolute control by these governors leading to separation from the pharaoh’s administration creating their own system and economy. This caused Egypt to be scattered all over the land and not unified. We can understand that one person shouldn’t have absolute power of a nation, but when we are in unification we are stronger and possibilities are limitless.
    So in conclusion Egypt was separated when a famine occurred, the interest of economics was lost, and the materialist greed of humans was used. So if all of Earth’s people were united and didn’t have lust of material we could take on anything.
