The Navajo thread (thank you Mellow) got me to thinking about culture. I have had multiple 'revelations' while interacting with Indian cultures about what, exactly, is MY culture. (Interesting fact - most Native Americans I know are fine with the term "Indian", even though it is an artifact of a massive error of ignorance by European "explorers").

Fact is, I don't feel like I have a culture, at least not one steeped in meaningful traditions or history.

Near as I can describe the essentials of my culture, it would be "consumerism", or Capitalism", or "industrialism".

Can anybody hep a feller out?


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
