Bauer is Westener

Reader comment on item: A Culture of Ambiguity

Submitted by Pascal Hilout (France), Dec 27, 2021 at 12:39

Bauer is indeed a Westerner. It should never be forgotten that the West's expression of guilt is part of its sense of responsibility for what is happening allover the world.

However, non-Western peoples have long been free and in control of their destiny.
But the Westerner Bauer still believes he is responsible for everything, including the faults of Islam.

This is also the way we show off among Muslims who do not want to take responsibility and change things for themselves. Thus, Bauer is doing Muslims a disservice because he infantilizes and disempowers them.
