^I disagree. I believe history is mostly understood by emotion-free factual analysis. If some prediction is wrong there has to be something wrong with the data or the idea used to make the prediction or both.
For example to me the Third Reich was in essence an ethnic German interest maximizer which I understand the same way I understand a paperclip maximizer.

^Script logic was invented by whites though NE Asians later learned to be good at it. Fact memorization is strong even among NTs wherever you have an organized authoritarian culture. Russia and Arabic countries came to my mind.
"Appreciation of form" "cultural insight" Having too many of these is exactly why non-Western Eurasian cultures did not develop as much as the West did. Northeast Asia was controlled by an ultraauthoritarian Confucian culture which ossified and rejected trade. Muslim nations suffered from Islamic ossification which is also very brutal. The West was good precisely because it was more free (economically and ideologically) than these two blocs.

no it wasn't, logic exists in any peoples with enough collective brain mass to establish arithmetic. Cultures are devotional to arithmetic in varying degrees and varying forms. If you mean modern coding then yes its a white invention but so is all modern tech.
Western leaders have always enjoyed less absolute power; we are simply a people that appreciates freedom and empathy. It will lead to our downfall.

Your second paragraph is spot on. If the West falls it will br because it is too free. If a harsh society (basically any part of the rest of the world that has civilization right now, NE Asia, India and the Middle East) falls it will be because of ossification. The non-ossified parts of the rest of the world do not even have any civilization. Some behaviors of tropical Austronesians for example are African-like.
Your first paragraph is largely correct as well.
I suppose that Middle Easterners and Indians also traditionally loved freedom before their current ossification appeared. Before ossification they were either white-like or African-like.
