What is Afghanocentricism

It is an idea that only by integrating Afghan Agency, Value and Tradition into the political deliberation and institutions of Afghanistan can peace  be achieved. It is not derived from a Eurocentric discourse nor aspires to a romantic historical past of a “great civilization”. it is neither a futile attempt to at best build afghan ‘self-esteem’ nor at worst  to balkanize the rich ethnic composition of the land. It is a Worldview in response to the western ethnocentric Liberal ideology that is incompatible and evidently an ineffective mechanism for peaceful resolution. Afghanocentricity is at its core a fundamental belief that the only mechanism to unify and uplift this nation is through collective intellectual self-reliance.
