The Fall of the Western Empire

 ... or How the West was won.

No, I am not trying to imitate or emulate Gibbon who wrote six volumes on the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire some hundred and fifty years ago.

My aim is to write about the fall of the present West which has started some thirty years ago when the Cold War ended.
