Historian Niall Ferguson asserts that what has set Western Civilization apart from others is that, at crucial junctures, it developed six attributes (which he light-heartedly calls "killer apps"): science, a work ethic, competition, medicine, democracy, and consumerism. His concern is that the West--The United States, Canada, and Europe--has lost its grip and dominance in those areas, and may be declining, in favor of nations like China and Japan. The empire-admiring Ferguson urges Western nations to get their acts together lest they fall like Rome.
