#6 What is Culture?

Culture is that which remains after we have forgotten everything else. In that sense, it is not politicized. It simply describes who we are, what we do, and how we interact. Culture becomes politicized and idealized when it enters the realm of comparing and contrasting and pursuing control and power over others. Knowledge is useful, but it is how people use it that may become problematic. In the same way that academia is not neutral, because from its inception it was designed to foster control and power over others, from a cultural perspective.
