When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.
They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”
and boom goes the dynamite
This concept is so hard for me to grasp sometimes. I don’t know if its because I’m 3rd generation Canadian or because I’ve always lived in large cities but I see culture being shared on the daily and I fucking love it. Like hell ya, let me into your world and let me explore it, invite me to experience your customs and try your food and listen to your music and hear your stories.
