Westerners often forget this fact

From The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order by Samuel P. Huntington.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.
