Dinner with Socrates ~ Bosconian Review ~ Cultural Collapse

Reading: Christopher Dawson, “Christianity as the Soul of the West”

Culturally, we seem to be standing on a precipice.  One more step and the West will tumble down into moral oblivion.  Modernity has been rapidly stripping away its Christian foundation, attempting to create something that it perceives to be better.  But is it better?  Can the West survive devoid of its heritage?  The secular forces which are shaping the world think it is possible to remove the religious from mainstream culture, but this de-Christianization seems to be soulless, providing no solution to the basic problems of humanity.  Men still remain restless.
