@Ananda has a non western and Indonesian POV that is as valid as yours or mine. Don't shoot the messenger because they say something that you, I, or others don't like. The west per se has done many things that doesn't endear them to non western nations, such as colonialism etc. There is a concept called Orientalism where it is claimed that the west (i.e., Europeans & Anglo-Saxon North Americans) forces non Europeans & Anglo-Saxon North Americans to conform to their imagery of them. Edward Said is the author of this concept and he has valid arguments for it.
FYI my own people were subjected to western (British) colonialism and although it bought some benefits, it bought many negatives. I am Māori and Irish Catholic with both sides of my heritage not having very favourable impressions of the British.
