Letter: Do not keep less superior nations in the dark

Do not keep less superior nations in the dark

The July 27 Insight page has a column by Walter Williams (“Extolling the superiority of Western values”) where he displays his comprehensive knowledge of global cultures. Williams states, “Western culture and values are superior to all others.” If this is true, he should list the nations that possess this superior Western culture and also list the nations that do not possess this superior Western culture.

In true Christian spirit the nations with the superior Western culture should be actively encouraged to enlighten the less superior cultures. Why keep the less superior nations in the dark? Shouldn’t we share Western enlightenment with our brethren?
