    You can't imagine anyone credibly claiming otherwise? How about having a look at the xenophiles from all over Europe? Studying ghetto behavior turns into Negrophilia, plus the Judeophiles and Islamophiles and other children of multicultural studies.

    It should only be done by people with experience and responsibility. Children and teenagers should be taught LESS about alien cultures and MORE about their own. We'd lose nothing if we dumped the multiculturalism and diversity and richness classes from our institutions.

    If we can honestly study them then it is enriching. But we are not allowed to study them objectively. They must always be praised and any hint that they are inferior must be denied. At the same time they are often praised as superior and better than our own culture, yet if we praise our own culture we are racists and its not allowed. This isn't an objective study, but more or less just brainwashing.

    If another culture rapes babies we must praise that as enriching and something we should try. And we can never say what they do is wrong or that our way is better. No in fact by default all other cultures by virtue of being foriegn must be more interesting and better than our own. I think if our own groups studied other cultures objectively but certainly not studying them on TV or in a public school. That's more or less anti-white propaganda.

    I have benefitted greatly from studying cultures other than my own. It allows me to pinpoint where the differences between them and us are, and to solidify my identification with my own kind.

    At the same time, it allows me to advice a member of that other culture to point them towards their roots: For example if a Russian claimed he wished to be an Odinist, then only through knowing marginal information about his Gods, can I credible point him to how his own gods relate more to him than my gods.

    Finally, it is also oft a point of "knowing your enemy". Our enemies know at least marginally what our traditions, festivals and gatherings are - and oft base the ideal strategic point of attack on that.

    THough what has to be said is that whilst we should familiarise ourselves with our neighbouring cultures, this should not be at the price of not familiarising ourselves with our own culture. You should "know thy enemy", but before you do that, you should perhaps start out with "know thy friend".

    And on a very last point ---- cross-cultural studies doesn't immediately mean that you have to learn all about some Muslim culture. If you're a German who familiarises himself with the Swedish way of life, then that's still "cross-cultural studies". Myself, I have benefit especially from learning about other Germanic cultures.

    I don't have a lot of interest in non-European cultures and it doesn't feel like I am missing much. As it was said already, we can't study them objectively the way it is now. We have to praise the alien. So no thanks, I'd rather not.

    What about other European cultures and other Germanic cultures in particular?

    ..and I was actually referring to those, in my original post. I didn't specify that because I thought it goes without saying!

    Not cultures hostile to our own, not Islam, "ghetto behavior" and all that...LOL, who would even wanna study ghetto behavior? What's there to study, to begin with...? Haha!

    In my view studying other cultures is useful. Yes, even the ghetto culture, the hip hop, the alien cultures. It helps to draw comparisons and value our heritage more. We mustn't forget that to study something doesn't mean to love that culture. Being familiar with a culture can also result in rejection of it.

    In my opinion, willful ignorance is not acceptable behavior for a proclaimed intellectual. How can one form opinions and make decision while uninformed? No, one should never hide their face in fear from knowledge, however unpleasant. If you feel it is potentially corrupting, then don't look into it until you are strong enough to question its influence. Do not abstain from any knowledge, as it is always what is best for intellectual growth.

    Knowledge of other cultures are certainly useful. Only, the illusional elevation of undeveloped cultures should be considered widespread, and the sources and teachers of such need to be intensely scrutinized. I wouldn't trust any school in the liberal West to provide an accurate picture of the characteristics and qualities of the cultures (gone or living) who were (or are) at odds with Europeans and are therefor to be given "uplifted" historical accounts by liberals. No doubt the full, true picture of what African or Middle-Eastern cultures are made of will be labeled as racist or Islamophobic.

    I love learning about other cultures. In fact, every person who supports globalism should be made to learn about them, to see what we would be missing if the world became brown. It's obvious that once a race ceases to exist, its culture will cease to exist too. That's why cultural preservation depends on racial preservation.
