    As globalization brought together experiences and values shaped by different cultural contexts, the modern world seems to be characterized by conflicts—between X-ists and antiX-ists, or even among different subcategories of X-ists. Yet most social tensions can be defused, for they have been fueled less by a fundamental contradiction in ideology but more by the lack […]
