I was referring to the very common tendency towards what I would call the "Poor Westerner Syndrome". It's often found amongst Western Aikidoists who are convinced that Western Civilization is worthless, socially corrupt and morally bankrupt. Whereas, the Japanese culture is pure, noble, whole and incapable of wrongness because of the purity of all things Eastern.

I fully understand the point.
