In an era of growing cultural pessimism, many thoughtful individuals believe that different civilizations—especially Islam and the West—cannot live together in peace. The ten countries of ASEAN provide a thriving counterexample of civilizational coexistence. Bubbling with optimism, here 625 million people live together in peace. This miracle was delivered by ASEAN.
