EAST AND WEST, WHERE IS THE BOUNDARY?
Western pop culture is more of an anti-culture than a true culture. It not only destroys the culture of the countries it invades, it has already undermined whatever culture of the countries it invades, it has already undermined whatever culture (that is, ethical or aesthetic refinement) that was in Western culture to begin with. Most of so-called Western art is a thing of the past, with little great art added since the advent of modern mass technological culture which occurred after the first World War.

Hence when Westerners insist upon maintaining the purity of Western culture what do they mean? Do they mean upholding Christianity? Do they mean upholding Greco-Roman or European intellectual values? Do they mean upholding modern Western pop culture or Western business interests? Is there a cultural purity of homogeneity in any of this? And what do so called progressive Easterners mean when they speak of bringing in the benefits of Western culture? Apart from technological expertise, the West has very little culture to offer.
