Hypocrisy of the east

There is a powerful propaganda going in the eastern and non western parts of the world that says yes to modernization but no to westernization. What does that even mean? May be it means that we want the technology of the western world, we want the apple products, we want to work in google, Microsoft, NASA but we will keep looking at the western world as a place which is immoral and will be sheepishly jingoistic about our own.

Apart from that we come across so many people in daily life who are literate but are impotent and not receptive to anything new to a degree that they start making radical statements. You might not like what the person in front of you is saying but part of education is the willingness to listen to what you don’t like and then weighing the matter logically, intellectually but never radically.
