decline and fall

Over in Europe, dreams are also unraveling. In France, according to a Pew Research Center survey, only 27 percent of the population now believes that “our people are not perfect, but our culture is superior.” I haven’t read such depressing news in a long time. When humility overtakes French culture, it’s over, folks. French culture is superior. Just consider the cut of a Chanel suit, the sweep of the Champs Elysées or the line of Bernard-Henri Lévy’s brow. It’s obvious — to everyone except the doom-struck French, apparently. Here in the United States, according to the same survey, 60 percent of Americans over 50 believe “our culture is superior.”
