The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

The fundamental problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power. The problem for Islam is not the CIA or the US department of Defence. It is the West, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the universality of their culture and believe that their superior, if declining, power imposes on them the obligation to extend that culture throughout the world. These are the basic ingredients that fuel conflict between Islam and the West.

PCQ: So? these shits are all from Statism, nationalism, racism,  which are all imagination, delusional beliefs. The problem is psychopaths i.e politicians, know how to exploit  these delusional beliefs perfectly.  Just have a good look at sports! They are no longer the games that bring people together enjoying artful playing skills, celebrating friendship, and having fun, they have become business tools  that promote staism and nationalism.
