"Hellenic culture contains only one single fraction of that truth which some day will bring salvation to mankind. It is only a small preparation for that happiness which will some day flourish on earth through Shem's " tents wherein God dwells" ; and as long as it is not wedded to that Hebraic spirit, as long as it prides itself on being sublime and exclusive, it falls into error and illusion, degeneration and servitude."
R. Hirsch, Judaism Eternal, Vol. II
Look what has happened to the West since the decline of religious faith. It's exactly as R' Hirsch predicted. We have now degeneration and servitude and illusion.
