35 In this process, a community is not collapsed but becomes sounder. The East Asian community discourse should be able to include the process in which the individual contextualized subject is directed against all kinds of fixed order. 36 In the mixed community, the role of the subject’s active practice of dialectical interactions with the Other is required to constitute the critical syncretism for “becoming Others”; the process, that is, by which the subject becomes the weak Other, not the strong Other, by internalizing the colonized people’s selves.
37 Such a paradigm, in which maintaining deconstruction corresponds to the stage of reconstruction, can be applied to the identity in-process of East Asia. I mentioned that deconstruction of homogeneity should be pursued more carefully, but I am not saying that it does not need any pre-conditions. It should be our first work to deconstruct the exclusive hegemonic system among East Asian nations formed by the effect of homogeneity, but at the same time we need to cure the fixed heterogeneities created by ethnic and regional disagreements inside each nation of East Asia and among them.
An identity haunted by self-homogeneity cannot cure the dogmatic oppression and discord but stands in a position of complicity with it; the resistant identity, free from all kinds of oppressive will, derives from the resistant will to understand the oppressive context and cope with it. But if such resistance is led by a nation or group that has established hegemonic power, it can never become a proper resistance. In this respect we need to reconfirm that the resistant identity helps to escape from the will to oppression that dogmatic self-homogeneity is destined to have; it re-identifies and changes itself, relying on its sociohistorical contexts so as to make itself soft and open.
