Culture! Culture!! Culture!!! This is the foundation of a people. It's what distiiguish them from others. It's what makes them unique and infact it's what makes a country. Just as we have the European culture so do we have the African culture. The easiest way to kill a man is to take to away his real identity. Take away the culture of South Africans and you are successful in killing them. Beside, they are not complaining or are you a South African?

Culture is a very wide entity. It express people ways of life politically, socially, economically etc. Can a man change what favors him? No! The culture of South Africa has made them one of the most richest country in Africa and their economy is rich and strong still. So why will they have to change their modusoperandi? South Africa is rich in tradition, wealth, economy to mention but a few. How do you think South Africa could host the 2010 historical world cup if not for its great and indispensable culture.

Can there be a debate without an opponent ? On! There is no opposition which can only mean that i'm right. South Africa don't need to embrace a new culture because their culture is good and productive enough as one of the wealthiest country in Africa at large.

I have problems with the definitions of "should," "embrace," and "productive."

"Should," from what standpoint? Moral obligation? What does it mean to say, within the context of this debate, that someone "ought to do" something?

"Embrace," as in include productivity as a high priority in the culture's value system? What qualifies as "embracing"? ...especially when we consider the following question:

What does it mean to be "productive"? Isn't being productive completely variable based on the culture we are discussing? Things are considered productive when people contribute to reaching a certain end; this end, however, varies from one culture to the next.

He would be making a totally relative and subjective argument, with tendencies toward alienation of one culture/ethnicity. That is a very fine line to tread.

Well how would he be hard-pressed to make a case that they're not productive as you said? You're saying it's subjective?
Posted by Torvald 4 years ago
Torvald
Oh, I'm not saying it is productive. I'm just saying, 'productive' is in the eye of the beholder.

Well how is it overall productive in your opinion?

It just seemed ambiguous, and I couldn't imagine anyone being against productivity, so I wanted him to explain.

Torvald
That depends on how you define productive. You yourself said that.
