Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue last week’s discussion by looking at the layers of a civilization’s cycles relating to its fragility or stability. They talk about what goes into forming a coherent group identity by looking at Lutheranism in America and then Japan in the modern era. They talk about Japan’s modernization and the success of Shinto throughout it, the growth and eventual plateau of population, and the inspiration of young men.
