Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh, ok. Let's let the market decide then. There's a nice simple model.

Wrong as can be, but at least we have a model, eh?

"Clash of civilisations" is a negative, self-fulfilling model, It creates and justifies - and is very possibly designed to create and justifies - conflict by painting a "them" and "us" who are intrinsically different. Conflict isn't about differing interests, it's about our in-bred differences, with an overtone of white superiority. But at least it's a model!
