The Arab Implosion Continues
. . . the Arabs will have to find some way to assimilate to this or be destroyed in the process.
The mere fact that this way exists and is obvious to all is sufficiently corrosive to destroy non-conforming cultures. Expect this to continue, to grow, and to gain speed.
"What we are seeing is not so much a clash between civilizations as a crisis of Arab civilization: the failure of the Arab world to master modernity—to find a way to be economically and politically successful under modern conditions without losing the core cultural and social values. This is comparable to what happened in China in the 19th century, when China failed to find a way to adapt Western methods and ideas to Chinese conditions—which led to decades of state failure, weakness, and immense suffering for the Chinese people."
All we can do now is lay pressure to move them onto the path we know works -- republican governance, free markets, limited government power, and reformed religions.
