As we approach 2016, the West is experiencing a civilizational loss of self-confidence, arising from a narcissistic fatalism and cataclysmic failure of institutional leadership.

by Neil Munro Joel Kotkin, at Chapman University in Orange, California, explains how American elites are betraying their own country’s core values, culture and future.
