"Why call it decline and not simply the way of the world?"
This is the fence I sit on, between a growing disinterest in our future with the realization that this is just the way of man, and a desire to save, or rather restore, Western civilization. The desire partially is natural. I am white of Anglo-European culture, my children are white of Anglo-American culture, therefore I have a genetic duty to want to protect my tribe/pack/pride/set. But the growing apathy towards our future seems natural too, as I begin to realize that like religion, homosexuality, and everything else people hammer on endlessly, the reasons we are declining is merely our nature and likely cannot and should not be changed. Hammering on destroying and abolishing religion is ignorant as our species quite literally evolved religion/superstition and related super natural concepts as coping, defense and organizational/social tools. It can't be abolished without altering the genome. The brain is literally wired to believe in the make believe stuff that the surrounding social structure believes in.
Our decline is just as natural, is it not?
Ultimately, humans need to believe in something, even Hessians, actually, especially Hessians. Since we here no longer have the benefit of pop music, religion or an afterlife to keep us occupied, something has to fill that niche. That something is metal and the metal world view, even if most of it is just religious obsessed pop music dressed up to scare us into acting right, so that we may get to the afterlife after all.
