What has the West Lost?


Looking at contemporary politics, I'm tempted to answer this (rhetorical?) question with: "His mind."

China isnt close to being Top Dog, this article is rubbish
Stupid article. Very few points are reasonable, most downright stupid.



Simply bashing the article as downright stupid is probably slightly too simplistic. The writer actually brings up several issues many Westerns are worried about:

- A financial system that is only understood by a highly educated elite and appears to be harmful
- Guilt for being much richer than the rest, with only having earned this by being born in the west
- Cocern that Western governments don't offer any moral guidelines themselves anymore.
- Fear of being overtaken by the rest of the world and ending up as second-class people.

So Fulford's essay may not be a very accurate economic or historical analysis of our contemporary world. But it certainly offers a lot of insights into western collective emotions. Those worries need to be taken serious by the west's elites - for they are very real. Isn't anxiety, after all, the very reason for all those woes?
