There is no conflict. They are two different strategies. The eastern model finds ‘honor’ in hierarchy and ‘not making waves’ with the hierarchy, while the western strategy finds ‘heroism’ in risk and achievement in disrupting the hierarchy.
The world needs room for safe people and adventureous people.
The problem is aventure is more prosperous than safety and so safe people want the advantages of living under the rewards of adventure, AND the safety of hierarchy.
SO it’s the attempt to reconcile these that’s the problem.
We dont want to reconcile them. MOVE TO WHERE YOU ARE SATISFIED BY THE ORDER.
