comment Is there a student of Arnold J Toynbee with an opinion about the state and fate of Western Civilization?
Of perhaps no relevance, but at least interesting to note is that later in his life, Quigley's research focused more heavily on secret societies, to the degree that he's a heavily used source for various conspiracy theorists.

As I alluded to in the post, I've tried to wrap my brain around current events using Quigley's divisions and as you say, it just isn't so simple. Also, there is strong prejudice towards Western Civilization over other cultures and other times, which is almost certainly being overvalued.
