Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One can point to Chaco Canyon, Easter Island, Mayan city states to show the western lifestyle isn't unique.  

Not even unique to hominids.  The Saber-toothed cat lasted for 42 million years.  Our earliest ancestor showed up ~14 million years ago.  On the record being a Saber-toothed tiger is a MUCH better way to make a living.  

Species finds a way to make a living, population increases under the system that way creates, eventually the system goes sour, population crashes.
