Exhaust from the machine

International mono-culture is contemporary colonialism that local elites invest in and pass off as the faux-modern world. Modernist or post-modernist thinking rarely if ever marches in with the consumer goods. Hey, Enightenment thinking isn't even present in their scenario! It's no wonder that religious miltancy targets this obviously soulless invasion of capital as it is devoid even of secular self-critique. On the other hand I'm just on vacation.

This is what a friend wrote while vacationing in the middle east. The "soulless invasion of capital...", that describes the machine.
