The End of Western Civilization

Most societies throughout history, even the wealthiest and mightiest, have eventually collapsed and died. Do you know why? Are we on the track of cultural extinction?

By de Andréa

Why don't civilizations just continue to evolve and flourish forever as their knowledge and technology grow? What allows some cultures to continually bloom, and others to wither and die?

This question – normally one of mere historical and academic concern – is increasingly relevant to millions of Americans as we behold our beloved nation struggling in the grip of unprecedented financial, political, spiritual, cultural, and moral religious conflict.

Indeed, many traditionalists are warning that America is not immune to the forces and influences that have caused other great empires and societies to self-destruct.

Many traditionally-minded voices point to the rapid growth in America of homosexuality – not only its prevalence, but its virtual celebration – eerily reminiscent of Sodom and Gomorrah, the ancient cities whose destruction due to rampant immorality is described in the Old Testament of the Bible.

From the time of this nation's founding all the way up until the current era, mainstream Americans held the Bible to be their ultimate guidebook, and the "Judeo-Christian values" it espoused as their highest fundamental principles.

Today, however – especially throughout the elite realms of academia, science, government, and the news and the deception of the entertainment media – the Bible no longer retains the stature and universal credibility it once had. In its place, America listens to sociologists, scientists and other researchers and so-called progressives.

But what if the findings of "experts" – not just those enthralled and prone to irrational socialistic and atheistic philosophies, but those more in sync with the basic values that founded America and Western Civilization as a whole – lined up perfectly with those of Biblical and historical truth?

Such information would present a powerful message – and a warning – to the current generation of Americans, particularly regarding the dangers of sexual anarchy and homosexuality.

In his book "Sex and Culture," Unwin studied 86 historical civilizations ranging from tiny South Sea island principalities to the mighty Roman Empire. He found that a society's destiny is linked inseparably to the limits it imposes on sexual expression and that those sexual constraints correlate directly to its theological sophistication and religious commitment. Unwin noted that the most primitive societies had only rudimentary spiritual beliefs and virtually no restrictions on sexual expression, while societies with more sophisticated theologies placed greater restrictions on sexual expression, and achieved greater social development.

In particular, cultures that adopt what Unwin dubbed "absolute monogamy" proved the most vigorous, economically productive, artistically creative, scientifically innovative, and the most geographically expansive societies on earth.

THE BOTTOM LINE: America and Western civilization can be no exception to historical fact. Societies are not unlike a railroad track; one can see the destination by the historical direction that other trains have traveled.

Historically, traveling away from God’s Biblical truth of sexuality has proven disastrous.

What track is America on?

Could we be on the historical track of cultural extinction???
