    Should All Cultures Be Preserved?

    I've noticed that some members here are of the opinion that ALL cultures should be preserved. Not just Germanics or Europeans, but ALL cultures around the world.

    So my question is do you care if other non-Germanic/non-European cultures are preserved?

    Of course I do...there are a lot of admirable non-European cultures. Im fact, every culture should survive, doesn't that serve our purpose even in an indirect way? Being against multiculturalism means caring for ethnopluralism.

    I'm not worried about cultures I have no personal blood ties to. That doesn't mean I'm hoping for their disappearance, I just don't care. I do think there are some cultures that don't belong in certain geographical areas - for example hip-hop & other Negro influenced cultures in North America & Europe or Islam in Europe & Hispanicized-Mestizo in the US.

    Culture is mankind's defining characteristic, I think all nations should be monocultural. The idea of amalgamating cultures is just a devious way of adulterating them.

    I feel the same as Americ. I don't have any particular interest in seeing foreign cultures becoming extinct. At the same time I do not think that we as western Europeans have a responsibility to protect them from such a fate. We have ourselves to look out for, and we're in one hell of a mess. Caring about foreigners is a luxury that we as a nation and as a people cannot afford at the moment, neither is it something we should undertake in a potentially better future in my opinion. I say leave everyone else alone for as long as they do not pose a threat to us. If some individual wishes to spend his own money and time on acting as a cultural conservator in much of the same way that people are active in protecting wildlife in other countries, that is fine with me, but it should not be a part of our mission as a nation or as a people.

    We Europeans are much too obsessed with what happens half-way across the globe in some God forsaken region, than we are with what happens in our own backyard. Well guess what, the shit is piling up and sooner or later someone (us) will have to deal with the mountain of garbage that we have created by ignoring the problems at home, while concerning ourselves with matters abroad which future generations of our own people have no stake in.

    Cultures have never been preserved, they keep changing, evolving and growing, sometimes dying ('the past is a foreign country', and how true ). That's the way things will always be and should be... trying to fossilize everything is preposterous, although I can understand if under-siege 'good natured' euro's are taking that mentality as a means of justifying their own 'preservation'... a place for everything and everything in it's place : very unnatural IMO.

    Personally I'm just concerned with seeing the continuum of 'my' culture die. And ideally I'd like to see it revitalized, not just 'preserved', that's for jam-jars and museums

    I think all cultures should stand up mostly for THEIR OWN. If they are strong enough and take good care of their own they will remain if not they will perish.
    Mostly I care about european cultures, those "neighbor" to mine, they should try mostly to stay monocultural especially novadays, when the Südmänner begin to swarm.

    Hrodnand states my position pretty well. I would like to see diversity in the world, in that various cultures and peoples maintain their identity in their own lands. However, the onus for preservation is entirely on them. If they are too weak to survive, it is not the responsibility of the US/UN/NATO/EU/etc to step in and ensure the artificial survival of a dying people.

    All of them? What about the ones that practiced human sacrifice like the Aztecs? 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? Some cultures condone child sex, is that ok. And cannibalism, is that fine with you? Like I said I'm indifferent as long as they keep it among themselves in their own countries, but why should theses cultural practices be preserved?
