For the first time in history, there is no major geopolitical conflict on the Eurasian mainland. It is clear that China is now drawn into a continental orientation, because its long-term strategy involves the search for a safe environment for its economic and political development.
The success of this strategy may ultimately hinge on civilisational compromise between the West and China, but not on naked international power politics. The "West" is clearly divided.
On one side is a Europe that is culturally tolerant of civilisational dialogues; on the other is the US, still running an "empire of denial", which could mean an ongoing global crusade against cultural challenges from other civilisations. After all, Europe began the cultural debate with China some years ago. It was the Catholic Church that first recognised the vast potential for expanding the Christian community beyond racial boundaries.
Through a process of learning the customs, languages and thought patterns of targeted societies, the Jesuits attempted to restructure the Christian order according to local systems. A debate on whether Chinese ritual practices, such as ancestor worship, were in fact compatible with Christianity preoccupied missionaries for a century, and the eventual European rejection of the Chinese value system during this so-called "rites controversy" was a defining event in the history of the West's relationship with China.
It also planted the seeds of a fundamental misunderstanding of China. It is hard today to understand the extraordinary vehemence and bitterness surrounding this theological argument between China and the Christian world.
Although it began as a theological debate, it eventually involved three popes, two Chinese emperors, hundreds of missionaries and the entire theologian faculty at the Sorbonne, the intellectual centre of the counter-reformation.
This first encounter is conveniently forgotten in the West. Hence, it falls upon the Chinese to put forward the idea of returning to the debate, which was relatively free from cultural bias and racial prejudice. The EU also seems to have realised that its traditional approach to Asia is out of step with the continent's own trends. Asia is no longer interested in Western imports of values and institutions and the EU should abandon its efforts to transfer its own post-war solutions.
Instead, it should focus on reviving the historical approach of cultural compromise and build influence on a more solid moral ground. We think you'd also like Thank youYou are on the list.
