I've posted a long comment on Roissy's blog detailing many trends I interpret as decline for America and the West.
I also engage in some subsequent conversations mostly related to this post.
I intend to break up this long comment into smaller, more detailed blog entries and will use this post as the "table of contents" for that effort.
I also intend to create a list of indicators of American and Western Decline and welcome community input to sharpen the accuracy of this list, including dissenting opinions.
I'll link all these goodies from this post as I develop them.
I'm just a dude who's got a certain level of understanding trying his best within his own limitations to figure out what the *bleep* is going on, why and what should be done to deal with that. I think most other folks are in a similar boat. I don't pretend to have all the answers. Please enlighten me if you think I'm full of it.
Eventually I'd like to explore creating a community site that allows more decentralized collaboration (i.e. get's me out of the middle). I like to err on the side of free speech and letting everyone's contributions speak for themselves, good or bad, although perhaps enabling some tools to allow individuals to filter out those they find extremely time-wasting without preventing others from listening to their messages.
