HINDU DHARMA AND THE CLASH OF CULTURES
Hindu culture is recognized as one of the major players in this cultural clash but as having a peripheral role because of its weakness and disunity. But there is a growing recognition that along with its growing economic and scientific development, India will become one of the main world powers in the coming century. A Hindu voice may yet have to be heard as world cultures cross one another.

It is the general hope of the West that it can overcome all such potential enemies by the power of modern education, global economics and the West dominated mass media. The West feels that as long as Western consumer goods are going all over the world that Western values of humanism, democracy and free trade must follow. The idea is if everyone buys American goods and watches the American media that this will draw people out of the conservative or totalitarian tendencies of their culture and eventually Westernize them.

In fact the West does not mind cultural differences as long as these do not interfere with business. The West does not have trouble with people following non-Western religions, as long as they accept free trade (and of course, preferably, as long as they allow Western religious groups to enter their countries as missionaries). The West has created the idea of modern democratic and economically free Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists or atheists.
