Fear, humiliation, hope and the conflicts of the future
Here’s another take on conflicts of the future. Dominique MoÃ¯si foresees a ‘global clash of emotions’:
Thirteen years ago, Samuel Huntington argued that a “clash of civilizations” was about to dominate world politics. Events since then have proved Huntington’s vision more right than wrong. It would be more correct, however, to speak of a “clash of emotions.” The Western world displays a culture of fear, the Arab and Muslim worlds are trapped in a culture of humiliation, and much of Asia displays a culture of hope.
