He had a quote on his site that brings together everything I've always thought about the West.
"the West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion
but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often
forget this fact, non-Westerners never do."
Samuel P. Huntington
I've had conversations with friends on why the West (whites) came out on top of the East (everyone else). I've always said it's because they had the bigger stick. That was the only thing going for them. This quote just puts it into more academic terms.
