Are We Becoming a Decadent, Stagnating Society?
AUGUST 8, 2020
Earlier this year I read a very interesting essay, “ The Age of Decadence ”, by NY Times columnist Ross Douthat. The essay is adapted from his recently published book The Decadent Society - How We Became the Victims of Our Own Success. This long essay covers a lot of ground, from technology and innovation to politics and religion. The essay was published in early February, before Covid-19 spread across the US.
