it can also be argued
that the modern west is a thinking, spiritual society.
take innovation for instance, which is in essence
a creative expression - which i feel is the virtue
which is closest to godliness.
and that the modern east, korea and japan for example,
are societies based on consumerism and knockoff
mimicry and truly innovate nothing.
it just depends on your own personal point of view.
it may just be that you personally feel the west
is thoughtless and spiritually corrupt.
well, americans have been refered to as infidels before...
