American Decline

Western Civilization has low self-esteem. What can raise its spirits?

Western civilization doesn’t really exist anymore. It died during the two world wars. “The West” today is basically just the American Empire, and it’s not the America of Nathaniel Hawthorne or Mark Twain. It’s the America of McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, and Amazon. Western Europe is the most far gone, but you see this even in Eastern Europe, Latin America, and East Asia.
