Expectations should not always be taken as reality; because you never know when you will be disappointed.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

Some Westerners [ ] have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists. Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise.

Thus, biologically speaking the American people are literally only half an immigrant people.

It will take a long time, and certainly the West will remain the dominant civilization well into the next century, but the decline is occurring.

Partial truths or half-truths are often more insidious than total falsehoods.

Well, I think the United States first of all has to recognize the world for what it is.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

Democracy is premised, in some measure, on majority rule, and democracy is difficult in a situation of concentrated inequalities in which a large, impoverished majority confronts a small, wealthy oligarchy.

In 1920, the West ruled huge amounts of the world.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

I think clearly the United States, as well as other western nations, should stand by their commitments to human rights and democracy and should try to influence other countries to move in that direction.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

Religiosity distinguishes Amer...

Religiosity distinguishes America from most other Western societies. Americans are also overwhelmingly Christian, which distinguishes them from many non-Western peoples. Their religiosity leads Americans to see the world in terms of good and evil to a much greater extent than most other peoples.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

And the big question for the West, of course, and to the Europeans is, what other countries, which were formerly part of the Soviet bloc, should be incorporated into western institutions?

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

Also, of course, for most of this time most Americans thought of America as a white country with, at best, only a very segregated and subordinate role for blacks.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

It was one thing to contain the Soviet Union in Europe because Britain, France, and Germany were all willing to join in. But will Japan and other Asian countries be willing to join in the containment of China?

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

These transnationalists have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite's global operations

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

The argument now that the spre...

The argument now that the spread of pop culture and consumer goods around the world represents the triumph of Western civilization trivializes Western culture. The essence of Western civilization is the Magna Carta, not the Magna Mac. The fact that non-Westerners may bite into the latter has no implications for their accepting the former.

Samuel Huntington 55 quotes

Every civilization sees itself...

Every civilization sees itself as the center of the world and writes its history as the central drama of human history.

Power remains strong when it remains in the dark; exposed to the sunlight it begins to evaporate.

Collective will supplants individual whim

It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new [post-Cold-War] world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations wil
