A Quote by Samuel P. Huntington on western, dangerous, world, war, west, soviet union, asian, muslim, civilization, and dominance


Western universals is dangerous to the world because it could lead to a major intercivilizational war between core states and it is dangerous to the West because it could lead to defeat of the West. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Westerners see their civilization in a position of unparalleled dominance, while at the same time weaker Asian, Muslim, and other societies are beginning to gain strength.

A Quote by Samuel P. Huntington

The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact. Non-Westerners never do.
