It improves our understanding of ourselves by revealing that:

→ a civilization is a dominant community;
→ a community is a shared understanding, which is expressed in a unique language;
→ all understanding is founded upon a morality, which dictates sanity or insanity.

An achievement that also clarifies the nature of Philosophy, reconciles Science and Religion and reveals the Meaning of Life

Why should I care if my civilization is declining?

How would I know if my civilization was declining?

How can a declining civilization be saved?

And what is Political Correctness?

Test the theory by visiting Toastmasters and judge my claims yourself.
