Description

The factors that go into the making of identity go through changes, especially in a globalised world. Whilst the nation-state fights to survive against global influences, the narratives are no longer working to their advantage. Once upon a time, it was easy to tell the 'insiders' from the 'outsiders'. Today the lines are blurred just like the borders of the European Union. Whilst the peoples of the world move into certain spheres, the balance of the factors influencing identity has begun to tilt in dangerous favour of those who have an entirely different vision of the world. In an attempt to put economic success at the forefront of all our endeavours, factors such as culture and history have been rendered insignificant by vast sections of our society. For now, certain spheres are enjoying a sense of freedom when it comes to homosexuals and heretics; others have entirely different plans for them. The two spheres in question are the cultured Christian sphere that has freed itself from the shackles of religion, and the Islamic sphere that has chosen to chain itself to the pillars of Islam. The rest of the world is in the shadow of this great game, and yet, there are no minor players in a globalised world. Can these two oscillating spheres find balance and harmony without causing pain and suffering to their populations?
