An Argument for Counter-culture in Jordan

I read about this argument for counterculture, by Indian theologian Dr. Sebastian Kappen, that I think applies for our region. (Emphasis is mine.)

Dr. Kappen envisages counterculture as a new culture that has to negate the two opposing cultural phenomena in Asian countries:

  • invasion by Western capitalist culture, and
  • the emergence of revivalist movements.

Kappen writes, “Were we to succumb to the first, we should be losing our identity; if to the second, ours would be a false, obsolete identity in a mental universe of dead symbols and delayed myths“.
