Well, in this case, I don't think "Western" culture is really the right term for it. Industrial
culture is more like it.
It's not as if they'll become model Euro-American-style countries, culturally. They'll have similar government systems and economic systems and such, ideally, with improvements. That's not really because we expect them to be like the good white people, though. Just because it originated in Europe and America doesn't mean it's actually a real product of our culture. It's simply what has become the most feasible, efficient manner of conducting industrial and, now, post-industrial society.
I would actually object if the proposal was to ship off fucktons of stuff like movies and such, suppress all their old traditions, and actually impose culture
, rather than systems
. However, it is undeniably true that the new systems will
modify their cultures.
After all, if we thought about Europe like we think about Africa, in terms of culture versus technological development, we'd consider it bad that today we don't prance about with loin clothes shouting Celtic war cries, or riding about in Roman legions, or fighting at Agincourt. At the end of the day, technology shapes culture, and their culture will shift. If it shifts towards something vaguely similar to Western culture, and they don't mind, then fine. If they do mind, well, I'm not sure what we can do about that...
