Clash of Civilizations mapn2.png  
Cultural and civilizational diversity challenges the Western and particularly American belief in the universal relevance of Western culture. … Normatively the Western universalist belief posits that people throughout the world should embrace Western values, institutions, and culture because they embody the highest, most enlightened, most liberal, most rational, most modern, and most civilized thinking of humankind.
In the emerging world of ethnic conflict and civilizational clash, Western belief in the universality of Western culture suffers three problems: it is false; it is immoral; and it is dangerous.
~ Samuel P. Huntington ~
