Western civilization needs a complete overhaul or it will fall apart one day or another. It has realized the most complete perversion of any rational order of things. Reign of matter, of gold, of machine, of number, it no longer possesses breath, or liberty, or light. -- Julius Evola, Heathen Imperialism
This quotation is closest to my belief. The rot comes from within, specifically the surplus of people with ignoble motivations. That is the problem to be fixed, and while it's harder than eliminating certain targets (USA, bankers, Jews, Scientologists, hackers, neo-Nazis, etc) it's the only thing that will actually reverse the problem.
Specifically, the surplus of people with ignoble motivations arises from doubt about the direction of a civilization. This usually occurs when enough of the population get fat and lazy by easy wealth or easy mental answers. That is the root of decay: no longer being concerned about extra-human reality or satisfying goals. When doubt arises, people turn on civilization, making the surplus which then band together into a self-reinforcing social in-group united in the idea of being opposed to the mainstream order.
The only solution is to restore reverence for values, transcendental notions of existence (origin of supernatural probability) and through that to create a heroic state of mind that transcends the individual.
