Neither. I think it's staying the same. There will always be people that resent Western Society and there will always be people and countries that look that way for hope of progress and advancement.

You really didn't specify what kind of power, so I'm going with what rules the world in the end and make a semi-educated guess by saying that the EU's economic power is increasing and the US's is decreasing.

It's decreasing, as the world sees that the West's greedy capitalistic economies and corrupt so-called democracies are a joke. The West has always had delusions of grandeur but other cultures are better.

Seeing as hating Bush has become the fashion, I think it´s declining.

I think it's slowly decreasing.

Decreasing. China's power has been increasing over the past few decades. And globalisation seems to be making power more diffuse as countries become more and more intertwined with each other economically.

The world order seems to be balancing out and becoming less lopsided.

But the U.S is trying hard to stop it.

If the West is in decline why come here ?
A)To speak and still keep your head.
B)To work for yourself not the state.
C)To walk down the streets in peace without
death squads or bombs going off.
FREEDOM is the REAL power.People are dying just to get a taste of it.If you don't believe me ask an illegal.

I think its been decreasing, at least economically and in terms of positive reputation.

The U.S. is definitely on the decline, but I think it's more of a case of the rest of the world having completely recovered from the great wars and having gained ground on the U.S.
