Was the reason why Rome fell was because of low immorality and bad family values?

I thought since the beginning Rome seemed to have had a perverted life styles.

    A significant factor (along with Emperors murdered at will by Praetorian Guard for 75 years, shortage of slave labor, overspending on military, taxation dividing rich and poor even further, economic troubles and much more) in the decline was rampant corruption in government with senators and other government officials putting their own self interests before those of the Empire.  A government once admired had become permanently corrupted by greed and self-interests - neglecting the Empire and leading to its demise.

    Giving away free bread to the masses and excessive social welfare, fighting too many wars abroad, trading unwisely, etc.

    I assumer you mean "high immorality", or simple "immorality". And note that the Roman Republic and Empire lasted for several centuries - over a thousand years if you count the successor entity of Byzantium. How long has your society lasted?

    Rome had good values, good morals, they were different than the other countries, but once they gave those up in favor of greed and power, they quickly fell apart and we're ruined.

    Sorry, darling, but history is much more complicated than that, and you're obviously too dumb to understand.

    Oh, poo! That's the sort of thing you'd hear at some backwoods fire and brimstone church. More likely, it was the lead in the pipes and drinking vessels plus the attacks from neighboring tribes.
