Spengler on Americanism, Anti-Americanism, and “Special Grace”

There exists a struggle for indigenous rights, in short, precisely because the indigenous have found something specific to fight for, namely the drug trade. Indefensible as the mistreatment of the indigenous might have been by the Spanish conquerors and their successors, the indigenous movement in Latin America is an excrescence of globalization, rather than its enemy. We hardly need talk in this context of radical Islam, whose existence in the absence of the global oil market is unimaginable. Without America’s global success, the undead of traditional society could not give voice to their rancor – much less finance it.

Editorial via Asia Times.  It’s dense and there’s a lot there to chew on (or throw up, depending on how you take it), including the willing death of various cultures in the face of globalisation.
