‘Western civilisation’s chauvinism and greed – its self–importance and dogmatic belief that its religion, democracy and technology can be exported and forced upon the whole planet – ignores or worse still, destroys the richness and depth of knowledge embodied in other philosophies and cultures from which the West has much to learn. Our arrogance will backfire.
We live on one planet and our species will only survive by adopting attitudes of tolerance and respect for our different ways of being on personal, cultural and spiritual levels. Living needs to be in harmony with the natural world. I believe that good will win, for good accepts that there is no competition, but enough for all.’ (from Hags book ‘How Things Are’)
