    Every 10 years or so there is a series of essays/articles about the demise of the West and the USA... Been happening for over 100 years about the USA and nothing comes of it. Change is inevitable but the USA is very healthy right now.

    This is absurd, the West was absolutely dominant before that it's just the U.S. wasn't dominant outside its borders until the 50's and didn't become 100% dominant internally till the 70's.
