Dilemmas Of The Orient

"[A]ll these fragile feelings of imitation, of not having, of being angry with your own country, with the west, with everything...I think that the whole non-western world is living these damning personal dilemmas. To understand nationalism and anti-western sentiment in the rest of the world, you have to go to these shadowy places, rather than to the latest political developments, which are actually just end products."

- Orhan Pamuk in The Guardian
