The remarkable economic expansion of East Asia has sparked conversation about the nature of Eastern principles and drawn global focus An actual benefit system, according to proponents of the idea, has underpinned the extraordinary economic development of this region and conditioned its orderly social and political characteristics. These assertions have drawn significant condemnation, not just because of their presumptions of causality and causality, but also because of their associations with strangeness and social superiority.

A larger conflict over competing ideas of modernism and how cultures should get organized is at the center of the controversy over Asiatic ideals. The prosperity of Asia can be attributed to tight sittlichkeit, which emphasizes family and community needs over personal privileges, believes that unique autonomy is less significant than the advancement of society as a whole, and that standard culture is a key component of national identity, according to advocates of Asian values. Many of these concepts derive from Christian knighthood as well as Chinese ideals of duty and honor.

Although there is no conclusive evidence to support an Eastern value system in the abstract, it is true that many Eastern cultures struggle to strike a balance between their modern and traditional values in relationships. For instance, those who support Asian beliefs and have high levels of racial stress may use their cultural traditions to aid in their struggle with prejudice. This is in line with research that suggests that those who support and are influenced by particular social values may be more tenacious to a certain level of cultural anxiety.
