If we choose to shrivel up and rot, at least it's our choice. We will simply learn our lessons the hard way I guess.
The West has become so wealthy and bloated that life has been far too easy for far too long. We've forgotten that the world is a very nasty and brutal place. Our Nazi fighters are almost all dead, and the Cold Warriors are retiring. We will soon be reminded of what the world is really like, almost certainly when it's too late. We failed our sons and daughters and only have ourselves to blame.
I suppose if we gave up on democracy things might not fall so far, but at what cost?
