Of late on often talks/reads about the prdiction that Ostwald Spengler made almost a century ago: The Decile of the West. In this context some have also suggested that Western civilization is also coming to an end.
What is true is that Western hegemony and military prowess in the world is certainly on the decline.
I am not so sure about Western Civilization.
Given that Western science, technology, models of government, and Enlightenment values are seeping into the rest of the world which is building further on these, one could argue that Western civilization has become more global than any civilization in history. In a sense the key elements of current Western Civilization seem to have taken permanent roots in humanity’s history.
Therefore there is no question of Western Civliation d declining.
On the other hand it is becoming even more creative and productive, now that it has started assimilating people and ideas from other civilizations as well.
