"Behind the horrid crimes of the West lies a narcissism which brooks no other image but that of its face in the mirror of the world.
It is a narcissism which suffers acute pain in the face of human variety, which feels insecure over diffrences which would make sane cultures rejoice in the bounteous variety of creation.
It is a narcissism which drives the West on a mission of cultural homogenization, a mission to reduce all cultures to replicas of its own. Whatever that narcissism cannot destroy it seeks to dishonor, despise and devalue under contemptuous hierarchies of creed, culture and color."
The West and the rest of us
