STATEMENT: On culture

culture is a complex construction of personal reality; we must be ready to make ours more meaningful by deconstructing its internal dynamic and make it more organic by destroying the elements and foundations that are disabling, leaving behind rites and rituals that have become meaningless, question core beliefs that have become anti-philosophical, destroy tools and toys that are found to be libidinal, challenge the meaning of respect for elders that have corrupted themselves in order to corrupt and bankrupt the young ... maybe by this we can become "culture-less" and lead a happier life always in sync with our existentialist and evolving self without being trapped in the historicism of the Master-Slave Narrative of some imagined community -- azly rahman (in a lecture to students of cultural studies)
