All civilisations rise and fall. For 300 years, the Judeo-Christian West has been the world's pre-eminent civilisation. So, where is the West on the timeline? Many have theorised about the fall of western civilisation but now we appear to have the evidence.
Low birth rates, ageing populations, debt-laden economies and immigration -- the West consumes without consequence, loves without longevity and lives without meaning. Peak oil, climate change, the GFC is the world without. Decadence, a lush essay-style documentary filmed in eight countries, is about the world within, about us. About what we have gained and lost. About a new renaissance or a final dark age? You choose.
