    Although I'd like to see all cultures flourish, I know that sometimes cultures die of 'natural causes'. I have nothing against this. What I object to is when cultures are attacked from outside by the the global market, bringing a sort of sanitised cosmopolitanism with it. But that's just my own particular bee in my bonnet. :

    I care about all cultures in the world. If mine has the right to be preserved, why shouldn't I recognize the others' right?

    I would agree with Blaxis here. I love my own culture, but I´m very interested in learning about other cultures, too. Additionally I would say that cultures only get interesting when there´s much diversity and variety in them.

    Human sacrifice, what barbarism! Good thing we introduced them to that most august and esteemed practice of burning people at the stake.

    after all, burning people at the stake makes an uncouth savage into a proper caballero.

    I believe in cultural preservation too, so needless to say, I care about all cultures. But I think the cultures should be preserved in their own environments. Muslims should preserve their Islamic culture if they want, but not here, but in the Middle East and other countries where they belong, not in Europe.

    Since I agree with Southern Boy's statement, I'll also respond to your question, Æmeric.

    Quote Originally Posted by Æmeric View Post

    What about the ones that practiced human sacrifice like the Aztecs?
    Or even some of the ancient Germanics. Yes.

    Now they no longer do that because the Spaniards made them stop doing that in the 16th century, but what if there was an Aztec cultural revival among Mexicans, including those in the US, would you support their right to human sacrifice?
    Yes.

    Some cultures condone child sex, is that ok.
    Do you mean sex between children, like among the Marquesans, or sex between children and adults, like among the Trukese?

    Either way, though, my answer is yes.

    And cannibalism, is that fine with you?
    Yes.

    why should these cultural practices be preserved?
    For a couple of reasons.

    First, it makes the world richer and more interesting.

    Second, all of these practices have important meanings and effects on the structure of the cultures involved. A culture is built over many generations. It's easy to mistakenly think you can remove a particular portion of a culture without harming it and end up tearing out a major supporting beam. Even people within a particular culture can fail to see the full significance of a particular element of the culture. I think removing any of these three elements from the cultures that involve them would be more spiritually and psychologically damaging to the people of those cultures than anything else.

    It's one thing to say a particular group has the right to practice it's tradition culture in it's native land, but allowing them to do so in another country where they are the aliens... that's insanity. What next, are you going to advocate the adoption of Sharia law for Islamic immigrants in the West? Just what have you been smoking these last several months you were awol?

    Your attitude mimic the multicultural PC rhetoric that all cultures are equal & we should be tolerant of them. There is a limit to what we should be tolerant of & when migrants cross the borders into our lands they should respect our customs & our culture, not impose or pollute our societies with practices that we find repugnant such adult-child sex or cannibalism or whatever.

    Well when it comes down to it, my ancestors immigrated to a land where they were a minority, and they really didn't give a fig for the indigenous inhabitants or their ways. Instead, they stayed apart from the indigenous inhabitants and preserved their own culture. And I'm very glad they did.

    If Mexican immigrants in the Southwest or Islamic immigrants in Europe want to operate societies apart from the primary inhabitants and maintain their own ways and laws and so forth, I say let them.

    I think the primary problem with their immigration is that they want to leech off our cultures when it pleases them and discard our cultures when it doesn't. If they weren't trying to enjoy any of the benefits of living in our cultures, then I would see no problem with their immigration. We have a whole lot of space here, after all (though I admit this is the attitude of a Westerner).

    Your attitude mimic the multicultural PC rhetoric that all cultures are equal & we should be tolerant of them. There is a limit to what we should be tolerant of & when migrants cross the borders into our lands they should respect our customs & our culture, not impose or pollute our societies with practices that we find repugnant such adult-child sex or cannibalism or whatever.
    I don't think their private sexual practices or diets pollute me. If they're having sex I think of as wrong among themselves and eating one another, that's their own affair. I don't think it hurts me at all. Especially if they live apart from me and keep to themselves.



    As for the issue of allowing these people to participate in our culture in the parasitic way they so often want to, we have a bit of a dilemma. Hospitality and generosity are important virtues in our culture, so shunning people who seek our generous hospitality is contrary to our culture. At the same time, allowing parasites to bleed us is also contrary to our culture. It is a difficult situation.
