In a globalized world ‘other countries’ are what “WE” were like in the PAST. I.e. a society NOT based on order, rationality, meritocracy, technocracy and logic – but rather this thing called “CULTURE”. Culture in this case becomes this ‘abstract thing in the corner isolated from other socio-political phenomenon.’ It’s not based on any level of ‘sanity’ it is based on loyal and unquestioned dogma a ‘primitive and collectivist’ way of thinking. Whereas, our world as we know it – depends on our ‘rationality’ and ‘individuality’.
