Becoming Who We Are : speculations on Western self-identification

Collin Cleary reviewing The Uniqueness of Western Civilization by Ricardo Duchesne elicits some meaningful observations.

First, he analyses how the Leftists and Right-wingers interpret the nature of the Westerns.

The point is Western self-hatred and self-negativity the terms used by the Left-wingers to describe the current condition of the Westerns. Right-wingers believe that today Europeans and European-Americans are greatly influenced by non-Europeans who strive to manipulate them for the sake of their own ethnic interests. However, this idea may be faulty as Europeans have already demonstrated their self- hatred by themselves. The problem of Western identity is that they are fastened upon the idea of individualism. Their vision is the unlimited autonomy of a personality which means the negation of everything that can limit the freedom. And it is the biggest mistake of them to think they can cut themselves off the history, biology, space and culture. Cultural and biological factors are undeniable and the refusal of these characteristics may completely ruin any identity.

Another issue is the idea of multiculturalism proclaimed by Western liberals. Their so-called diversity stands for accepting only those cultural ideals that are compatible with those of Western liberalism. The culture is not simply language, traditions, costumes etc.. It is how the people understand the world, their beliefs and views on social, religious, even gender and other concepts. In fact, Western liberalism is not willing to consider these factors; moreover, it tends to stop them in order to implant the “aliens” their own vision of truly human nature. There should be no way to universal ideas for all peoples and no unification. First, because Westerns regardless of how queer it may sound do not realize what their own culture is. Second, they simply have no right to impose their culture and proclaim it as the only which is universal for everyone.

Collin Cleary suggests some views on how this madness can be cured. Without neglecting fundamental things about the Westerns it is urgent to reconsider the notion of freedom. Another cure for Westerns is to make them stop denying unchosen conditions. They are to realize that rejecting social, biological, historical and cultural conditions will destroy them. Thuswise, they have a chance to finally acknowledge that these things make them who they are. Knowing who they are they will be truly free to live and act.
