The Autumn of Western Civilization

Dangerously jaded and cynical, the West is rudderless and adrift in existential crisis.

The West seems only able to masochistically focus on its past sins and imperfections?—?“We’re so guilty and morally compromised. Just look at all the bad we’ve done: slavery, Hiroshima, Iraq, Vietnam and beyond . . . We don’t deserve to lead the world.” Meanwhile, over the weekend, Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s Foreign Minister, called for a “post-West world order” in a speech. The only atmosphere in which he could express such a sentiment is one in which the West utterly lacks the will to defend itself and its values on the world stage. The fact that Lavrov was bold enough to express such a goal is a dire warning sign to the decadent West: our world order is crumbling.
