Camille Paglia has listed The Decline of the West as one of the influences on her 1990 work of literary criticism Sexual Personae. The French and Russian and Maoist and Khmer Rouge and Taliban revolutions all dethroned the old gods and desecrated their temples. The population of 30 million foreign born (of which 11 million are "illegal aliens") is larger than the entire population of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

This section is written like a personal reflection, personal essay, or argumentative essay that states a Wikipedia editor's personal feelings or presents an original argument about a topic. Further, Spengler saw urban wage disputes and large entertainment expenditures as the final aspects that signal the closing of Culture and the rise of the Civilization. When, after several generations, this was accomplished, the West would no longer be the West, but another civilization altogether, and control of the state would inevitably follow control of the culture. In his framework, the terms "culture" and "civilization" were given non-standard definitions and cultures are described as having lifespans of about a thousand years of flourishing, and a thousand years of decline. Through its control of the culture, the Left dictates not only the answers, but the questions asked.The Death of the West is a timely, provocative study that asks the question that quietly troubles millions: Is the America we grew up in gone forever? Like the Taliban and the Great Buddhas of Bamiyan, our cultural revolution intends to tear down all the flags and statues of the old America that it abhors. He said that Peter the Great distorted the tsarism of Russia to the dynastic form of Western Europe.

Buchanan is good at identifying many problems in American society today, but in most cases his proposed solutions are off the mark. Many of the problems which Buchanan was sounding the alarm over may have seemed trivial at the turn of the century but now they are magnified and unmistakable and urgent.

His thesis is that Western civilization is dying before our eyes as other civilizations in Asia, Africa, and South and Central American rapidly outbreed the peoples of Europe, Australia, the United States, and Canada. Spengler believed that Enlightenment rationalism undermines and destroys itself, and described a process that passes from unlimited optimism to unqualified skepticism. Spengler said that the Second Religiousness is a harbinger of the decline of mature Civilization into an ahistorical state and occurs concurrently with Caesarism, the final political constitution of Late Civilization.

It looks also at how Christianity is increasingly under attack in Western society, and becoming despised and marginalised. The late Richard Weaver had these conservatives in mind when he wrote that "many traditional positions in our world have suffered not so much because of inherent defect as because of the stupidity, ineptness and intellectual sloth of those who.But it was really just a bunch of statistics and the author claiming that our culture is dying and the only way to save it is to keep the goddamn Mexicans out and outlaw abortion so the USA will stay good and white with more and more unwanted white babies. In 1921 Otto Neurath published the pamphlet Anti-Spengler and Leonard Nelson wrote a book-length parody Spuk: Einweihung in das Geheimnis der Wahrsagekunst Oswald Spenglers. Spengler saw its world view as being characterized by appreciation for the beauty of the human body, and a preference for the local and the present moment. Spengler differentiates between manifestations of religion that appear within a Civilization's developmental cycle. He offers red meat to the extremists while at the same giving himself the wiggle room to deny he said anything controversial in the first place.
