    making fetish a particular model?

    Hello Everyone,

    What does" making fetish a particularmodel" in the following paragraph mean? Is it similar to " demand uniformity"?


    We should respect every country's right to independently choose its own socialsystem and path of development, and encourage countries to go formutual emulation instead of deliberateexclusion, for mutual learningof respective strong pointsinstead of making fetish a particular model, thus succeeding in their rejuvenation and development in line with their national conditions


    Regards


    Sky

    Dear Sky:

    Could the text say, '...instead of making a fetish of a particular model,...'?

    If so, it means 'becoming obsessed with one particular model (of development)'.

    Best wishes,

    Petra
