Spiritual East, Materialistic West

The East has never created an ideology; the West has never created a religion. Every religion that has become popular in the West in the last 3000 years has originated in the East. Every ideology that has become popular in the East in the last 150 years has originated in the West.

The East is spiritual, otherworldly, conscientious, traditional, altruistic, territorial, and introspective—it has the sensibility and wisdom to develop and propagate religions like Judaism, Paganism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shinto, Christianity, and Islam. The West is materialistic, technical, selfish, revolutionary, extrovert, brutal, power hungry, and expansionist—it has the mentality and knowledge to create ideologies like militarism, imperialism, communism, socialism, fascism, racism, nazism, conservatism, liberalism, and libertarianism. 

When the East tries to develop an ideology, it comes up with a personality cult. When the West tries to develop a religion, it comes up with a materialistic cult like scientology. Eastern religions rule the West; Western ideologies rule the East.
