Nonsequitur: The Fall of Rome Again

September 8, 2015

Bounty to boredom to decadence to panic to reawakening to ascendance has always been the cyclical way of the West. Its curse has been that the cycles of nihilism are as long as they are unnecessary. – Victor Hanson Davis

My favorite historian points out that our “leaders” (political, corporate, moral, media) criticize the very values that resulted in their successes and undermine the institutions that made them “leaders.” Read “Is the West Dead Yet?” for a more detailed argument.
