I am in favor of cultural diversity. Not because I would be a romantic dreamer.
I want cultural diversity because I want a world of different moral and legal standards. Not because I would want to protect human heritage.
My eyes are set on the future, not the past. I want cultural diversity so I can choose to live in a culture that is to my liking, and go to live in another one when I shall find this other culture more suitable.
There is not enough cultural and legal diversity in the world.
Everything is Americanized and getting tainted with American feminism whereby women are never wrong. A woman can murder her husband, and somehow it's the husband's fault. And if she murders her children, it's either because she was abused by her father, or it's the fault of society at large.
Just as during the Spanish conquest of the Americas in the 16th century, the justification was saving souls, the justification for the meddling of the Empire of Washington in the affairs of Asian and African societies is to protect local women and children from their barbaric husbands and fathers.
As a man, even of Western origin, I am entirely opposed to the Americanization of the world. I have good reason to prefer other, non-Americanized cultures.
But in the past 30 years that I have lived in Asia, I have seen Americanization creeping in everywhere around me, and I don't like it.
I am in favor of anything that halts this Americanization, and departs from it.
I believe that everybody who wants a world of cultural diversity, whether he or she is a Muslim or not, should view Islamists, even violent ones, with sympathy. They are at the forefront of defending the world's cultural diversity.
This is a formidable task. America and Europe have most of the world's money. And they have billionaires who are donating hundreds of millions of dollar of private funds to NGOs that busy themselves with bringing Americanized morals and legal views to every corner of the world.
They also have a huge activists base, mostly of frustrated women, which would like to give their lives extra meaning by entertaining themselves with good deeds (liberate the women and children of the Third World from despotic husbands and fathers).
Because protecting or re-establishing the cultural diversity of the world is such a formidable task, it makes sense that all forces that oppose the world's Americanization form a strategic alliance.
Such a United Front, formally or informally, can include Islamists, Communists, American secessionists, social Utopians, and reactionary royalists. Chinese, Arabic, or Latino political leaders, and even the odd Asian or African dictator.
As of this time, just stay focused on who you principal foe is: the Empire of Washington, a.k.a. the United States of America. Your enemies' enemies are your natural friends. View them as brothers in arms or just as useful idiots. It doesn't matter. Just be aware of the fact that you need allies, as many as you can find, if you want to have a chance in resisting American cultural imperialism.
Only after American cultural imperialism is defeated, you may want to, and may, differentiate yourself from those with whom you fought against Americanization.
