Decadence In Action: The West Obsesses Over "Crucial" Issues Like Transgender-Friendly Loos as the Mullahs Get Set to Nuke Us to Kingdom Come

Mark Steyn pointed out the danger of such navel-gazing on Hugh Hewitt's show last night. Steyn opined that
it’s a slightly faintly unreal world. In a way, we’ve moved on from same sex weddings where we’re talking now about transgendered bathrooms. And I’m sure we’ll be talking about transgendered bathrooms when the mullahs nuke us. These are like first-world indulgences at a time when large chunks of the map are going backwards. And I think back to that, the mall seizure in Kenya a couple of years ago. A lot of your listeners don’t pay any attention to Kenya. Who cares? It’s East Africa. They’re all crazy over there. Well, they’re not, actually. That was a sophisticated, first-world, upscale mall. And the idea that one day slaughter descends out of the blue and there’s corpses all over the floor.  
That actually is a metaphor for what’s going on in the world. You know, we’re a fabulous boutique, and there are dark, primal forces out there that want to just smash that boutique. And the idea that we can somehow live as an upscale, little Monte Carlo or Switzerland, and just obsess about transgendered bathrooms while the rest of the planet goes to hell is completely ridiculous.
Not only ridiculous. Downright suicidal, too.
