The WSJ’s OpinionJournal has a good article on the attitudes of the European nomenklatura towards the United States. In essence, the argument is that the Europeans realize that their days of power are over and that America is on the ascendency. The conclusion is one that is startling, but true: we need to reassert Western values in Europe it will become the next hotbed of terrorism and resentment. The current European cultural nihilism and loss of Western values are troubling signs. The future of Europe is indeed troubled, and the Eurocrats are only making the situation worse.
