The cultural vanity wasn't unique to Europe >(what culture doesn't think it's the pinnacle of human >creation?) but the effects of that vanity have probably >reverberated farther than any before.
Agreed for the most part, although this is still a bit general. I would consider cultural vanity the result of the mindset of nationalism, therefore making "European" an incorrect label. When you think about Europe, there are European countries that continually fight other European contries. There isn't one giant white culture. This is a myth. peace,
