A couple of columns appeared this last week addressing the intellectual decline in both the United States and Europe.

British artist and historian Paul Johnson wrote in much the same vein about Europe in the Wall Street Journal. I wonder what it’s going to be like 20 or 30 years from now if things continue in the same direction?
