"You are dying. I see in you all the characteristic stigma of decay. I can prove that your great wealth, your capitalism and your socialism, your wars and your revolutions, your atheism and your pessimism and your cynicism, your immorality, your broken down marriages, your birth control, that is bleeding you from the bottom and killing you off at the top in the brains - I can prove you that these were characteristic marks of the dying ages of ancient states - Alexandria and Greece and neurotic Rome."
Oswald Spengler, Decline Of The West, 1926.
