Anti-Colonialism in Obamican Life

In Washington, Irrational Narcissism Left and Right on Egypt
Like the pro-democracy paradigm, the anti-colonialist paradigm is narcissistic. Whereas Western democracy champions believe that all people are born with the same Western liberal democratic values, post-colonialists believe that non-Westerners are nothing more than victims of the West. They are not responsible for any of their own pathologies because they are not actors. Only Westerners (and Israelis) are actors. Non-Westerners are objects. And like all objects, they cannot be held responsible for anything they do because they are wholly controlled by forces beyond their control.

Your Say

Interesting straw poll from Moderate Muslim Egypt (in article):

59 percent said they back Islamists.

Eighty two percent of Egyptians support executing adulterers by stoning

77% support whipping and cutting the hands off thieves.

84% support executing any Muslim who changes his religion.
