No dude, I know I was simplifying and in general I agree with you. I guess the fact you have to keep clarifying what it is you're asking might be a symptom of why my answers are defficient. If you're just asking whether the current system is adequate then of course I'd say hell, no! And as for what you say about 'The West' I couldn't agree more.
I guess I just wasn't sure what it was you were saying and asking. It seemed for a minute like you were saying Europe was an imaginary thing that didn't really exist culturally or geographically, which obviously I had to contest. If i got you wrong, then I apologize. See, I even put an American 'z' in 'apologize' for you
I'm a bad person to ask these sortsa questions though cos I really do feel myself sorta 'as one' with all humanity, all races and all peoples. The cultural differences I see as pretty superficial and easily adaptable to, just a veneer over the central humanity that we all share: we all feel the same emotions and have the same needs, we've just all grown up with different ideas of how to meet those.
Of course Europeans are Eurocentric - most cultures are themselves-centric! lol that's just part of human nature, to consider oneself 'the norm' and work outwards from that. That's Si - the most common primary and auxhilliary function
