Clash of ignorances

"The clash of civilization is more like the clash of ignorances. When people from different cultures get to know each other better, there would be more pertinent policies and decisions."
By this short reflexion, Dominique Baudis, former chairman of the CSA, French Council of Audiovisual Monitor, and current curator of the IMA (Institut du Monde Arabe, Arabic Culture Institute) in Paris, France, indirectly answers to Samuel Huntington and his essay "Clash of Civilization". We totally agree with Mr. Baudis. The world isn't divided in two or three heavyweight, super blocs, jumping on each other to gain more power.
