I don't think cultural aspects make people idiots.

That brings us to the question of whether one culture can be deemed 'better' than another.

Let's take Africa, for example. Almost all of the problems they have in Africa can be traced back to their culture. War, AIDS, agriculture, genocide, all of these are related to their cultural beliefs. However, if they polled Africans and polled Americans, I have no doubt that Africans would report themselves as generally happier over all, with a more positive outlook on themselves and life in general, than Americans. Ever watched documentaries about Africa? They're always so positive and hopeful as a people. They place high value on family and find their strength there. Who are we to say that their culture is inferior just because they are a 3rd world country?

1,000 ways to skin a cat - but generally Im of European thinking. This country was founded on protestant beliefs and as much as we stomp and protest that we've evolved the truth at the end of the day is we all have large rods stuck up our asses after 400 years.
