but in a broader sense it seems to me we lost it,

In order to defeat Germany and Japan we supported the still greater menaces of Russia and China, which now confront us in a nuclear-weapon era. Poland was not saved. Much of our Western culture was destroyed. We lost the genetic heredity formed through aeons in many million lives. It is alarmingly possible that World War II marks the beginning of our Western civilization’s breakdown, as it already marks the breakdown of the greatest empire ever built by man." — Charles Lindbergh
