The Collapse of Western Civilization

I have recently written in the Atlantic Review about an incredibly smart, international conference devoted to the "Collapse of Europe?", which will take place in California next month. As payback, Alex Harrowell discusses "The Disunited States: America’s Collapse?" in A Fistful of Euros. Who is going to collapse first? :-)
European Strategic Headquarters, WSI Brussels Blog, and the The Moderate Voice weigh in as well.

Anonymous on :

Russia and China will collapse before the West will.

Pat Patterson on :

I'm with Don S. as the Cassandra's of doom and gloom have been moaning for at least 5,000 yers and once in a very rare time are right. But I do think major social upheavel in China, is the more likely, while Russia continues its slide towards becoming a very large Costa Rica with nuclear weapons.

Andrew on :

I think Joerg is missing the point of Alex's post at A Fistful of Euros. Alex is not saying it is likely that the U.S. will collapse as he described; in fact, he is saying the opposite, i.e. that it's unlikely, by satirically employing the same sort of straw-grasping rhetoric as the "Eurabia" crowd in order to show how ridiculous their warnings are.

Joerg on :

I got his point. I used lots of satire in my blog post as well. ;-)

David on :

This is from a promotional e-mail for the right-wing site Human Events Online: "Someday soon, you might wake up to the call to prayer from a Muslim muezzin. Millions of Europeans already do. And liberals will still tell you that "diversity is our strength" -- while Talibanic enforcers cruise our cities burning books and barber shops... the Supreme Court decides sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state" ... and the Hollywood Left gives up gay rights in favor of the much safer charms of polygamy. If you think this can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious and brilliant Mark Steyn -- the most popular conservative columnist in the English-speaking world -- shows to devastating effect in his New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It." There really are people out there that believe in this nonsense!
