Between East and West

This is a tale of a person who traveled in different parts of the world, in the East and West. I grew up under communism, where equality took priority over freedom. I was educated in the West, where freedom is placed before equality. I found employment in Malaysia, where I encountered faith. This is a tale of travels, discovery and enlightenment.

These three ways of existence have diverse origins. The first two, socialism and capitalism are products of Europe, where revealed knowledge was marginalised by the Enlightenment when reason challenged revelation. Spirituality had to take a back seat, so to speak.
