The decline of the West, as pervasive as the argument may be, is not inevitable but is rather a product of the West’s own doing. The West, wracked with guilt over the legacy of colonialism and the alleged exploitation of ‘the Other’, has abdicated its leading role in geopolitics. However, this trend is reversible and it requires a concerted effort from those countries labelled ‘the West’ to find new ways to renew its unity and legitimacy.
