Western Nostalgia

"The culture is still pure there." 

I have lost count of how many times I've heard that phrase or the many permutations of it. Since when did cultural change become defiling? When will this colonialist dream about the unspolit far away countries stop?

Let others grow as cultures as well. Let yourself realize that you can no longer separate yourself from the "other cultures." We now share the same living room and need to start treating others as adults as well.
