    Question Is Western Civilisation Failing?

    Would you say that the civilisation we live in (western civilisation) is failing? and if so can we help stop it's decline by studying other fallen civilisations such as Rome? In other words are there parallels to draw between the decline of the great historical empires and the decline of Western civilisation?
    Cattle die, kinsmen die,
    the self must also die;
    but glory never dies,
    For the one who is able to achieve it.

    It's starting to stagnate. Not necessarily falling, but definitely not exceeding or at the very least keeping up with the growth rates of our only potentially realistic threat, Asia. In this century I think we will probably have another big collapse in western civilization like during the time of the Great Depression/World Wars, but I think we will rise from the ashes better and stronger with most of our problems of today taken care of in the new West that re-emerges.

    We've been declining for about 60 years in most respects. This has been offset primarily by technology and the further exploitation of virgin land and international commerce. So if you look at some aspects certainly we are declining: our communites are garbage, crime is up, the people are dumber than ever, social policy makes no sense. Look at some things: technology and productivity is relatively on the rise. Overall we are mostly stagnate, yet inevitably we seem to be heading towards a cliff and the fall seems likely.

    There's nothing I can do. Other people in society are not like me. They resist any effort at bettering themselves or preparing. For every drop of good I do for society there is a tidal wave of destruction to counter it by the mindless masses. I'm not rich or powerful enough to have any significant influence on society. I'm just trying to make a small group that will survive and even thrive in the coming chaos and rise out of the ashes.

    We've been in a decline for well over a thousand years.

    You know I have to agree with that statement in many ways. Classical Greece and Rome did have their flaws though, some of which are better today (unless you think sex with children is an improvement or having massive numbers of slaves). Though culturally it was better. They valued heritage, eugenics, self improvement etc. which was chipped away at for a thousand years by Christianity and now liberalism, communism etc. all coming from the same source.
