You cannot choose to be from a country; hence it is pointless being patriotic. Watch

    Cultural relativism is the principle that an individual person's beliefs and activities should be understood by others in terms of that individual's own culture.
    so yes, all cultures are equal. It isnt about validity, since only those part of the culture would practise it. How beneficial a culture is is totally subjective, one can argue the west was of huge value, others would argue colonialism was a big step back in the development of poorer nations and is ultimately regressive. Same can be said for other cultures too. No one can ultimately say one is better, that can be your own opinion but it isnt valid since all cultures are equal.
    Okay, so, you, being a cultural relativist, then. Lets say for arguments sake the traditional Aztec culture of south America was still around today, along with all of it's, um... Less-than-humanitarian practices and rituals. Would you consider that culture to be equal to our own, modern culture?

    Go back? Lol, I thought even you would've figured out that I'm British. Guess I just fell victim to the 4th law of human stupidity.

    Oh and by the way, fascism arises from socialism (the far left) not the far right nationalism and also, Russia is 2nd world not 3rd world.
    The definition of fascism is literally 'an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.'
    Good one.

    LMAO at you. As if other races didn't take slaves, hell, the Africans made slaves of each other and Islam is still making slaves in that part of the world. If I'm not mistaken Saudia Arabia only criminalised slavery as recently as the seventies.

    The British have much to be proud of and I'm proud that I'm a Brit

    Equal in what sense? Morally, it doesnt comply with our culture, but it does with theirs

    How can cultures be equal if they do not comply and co-exist with each other? Is there a sliding scale of compatibility?

    We can say certain things dont comply with our culture, they can say we dont comply with theirs. Intolerance is the problem here.

    Our own moral judgement is based on our surroundings, their morals are based on their own surroundings.

    The Chinese dont use their culture to undermine other cultures and people, the british do.

    The Chinese dont think others should be forced to adopt their culture, the British do.

    The Chinese dont think their culture is superior to others, the British do (well, western culture)

    the Chinese dont uphold their culture and believe others should look up to it, the British do.

    The Chinese have a culture, the British dont.

    People who claim to be nationalists in Britain spend more time bashing other cultures, screaming about immigrants and muslims rather than actually being proud of their mundane culture. They simply shout 'Culture Relativism is ********'

    That's because it's not racist to be proud of one's own country...

    Immigrants recognise the west to be a superior place to live as opposed to their own countries. Why don't you?

    I cba to go to back to pg 1 to quote you two but all I have to say is the purpose of patriotism is normally to be used in times of political unrest or wars actually, to support the politicians or soldiers.

    If you say I hope the soldiers die or the prime minister/pres gets assassinated, it's not patriotic.

    It's suspicious if it's done on the otherhand like day to day and so then it becomes nationalism. Which isn't racism. White people and Asians and blacks are nationalistic to each other.


    Is a Japanese person saying gtfo Koreans racist, no. It's nationalistic. Sick of people using the wrong words interchangeably.

    They dont come because the culture is better, its because of economic reasons, especially since many of their own countries were trashed by the british in the past, which significantly slowed the rate of development. Using your logic you can argue that their culture is 'superior' because we encouraged immigration in the past and currently need these immigrants to fill up both low and high skilled jobs the people of the british culture are incapable of doing.
