    Steve Is that it, then?

    So offer to you this link, which contains an essay for discussion.

    The central question to answer:

    Is Western civilization inherently better than others? Are there objective standards and measurements by which one mode of human organization may be said to be better than another?

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Defining the standards by which you judge a civilization pretty much removes any ojectivity. How can you judge a civilization by any but the standards you have adopted?

    If you agree to that then we do not have the right to impose our way of life on others. The way many of us say we believe. Do as you want as long as it does not interfere with my freedoms. I believe international relations should be conducted that way.
