Just as the western colonizers called the colonies they conquered "the tropics," "the South," and "the Third World," so the tropics called the powerful capitalist countries "the Western world," even though the real geographical position of the Western countries was not to the west, but to the north. But for these former tropical colonies on the edge of the world system, the real geographical vector is no longer important, and that "Western world" is where they have to look -- even if that history is past. Powerful, disciplined forces continue to blow from the “West".
