Since 1945, the strategy of the West has been to shape the world in its own liberal ideals, institutions, and culture. It has spread fantastically. Liberal perspectives, democratic governance, American jeans, peace, and prosperity are everywhere except for places where other ideas are entrenched.
But it’s not all altruism that made the West promote liberalism, it’s also strategic. Statesman of the West knows only the acceptance of liberalism by rising powers of the rest of world can save the West from their future tyranny.
It is with this in mind I am baffled by the rise of ethnonationalism in the West. Do they not know, their ideology if adopted by the “color” may result in the subjugation of the West by the rising “color” in the future. In a few decades, China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil will be 4 of the 5 most powerful economies in the world. What kind of conversation do you want to hear on their TV? Liberal cosmopolitanism or ethnonationalism?
