A quick poll about the future of American Civilization.

The Gen Y thread got me wondering.

Where do you think America is in its life cycle? Are we ascending? Are we on the downside? What is our long-term trajectory as a civilization?

Poll to follow unless the Visigoths storm the walls before I can post it.

I think America's prominence in the world is on the decline, and I expect that trend to continue as other world economies (primarily China) continue to grow.

However, I think the quality of life in this country continues to improve and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. And really, that's the important part.

Balancing those two, I went with "We're in a stable state and likely won't decline."

I see the US as declining. Back post WW-II single wage earners raised a family on one paycheck and family values/ right/wrong were taught in the home. As the economy has over the past 50 years gotten to where it takes 2 paychecks to be even close to the same standard of living, kids are now learning morals, respect, behavior, etc. that should be taught in a stable home everywhere but at home. I feel sorry for today's kids who are going to be saddled the entitlement debt that today's politicians are giving out to buy election/re-election and the inter-generational grief coming when the young folks quit paying the IOU's to old folks.

I have to be completely honest here. I'm an old guy and seems like everyday I'm reminded that this is NOT the country I grew up in. Things change and I understand that. However, and it's only my opinion, but as Richard Pryor once said, "Shit rolling downhill fast now!"
