Please let me know, cuz I have no fucking clue.
After a week of being here, I have come up with a couple of questions. This theory of "culture shock," is it really an existing condition, or is it simply a tool used to justify the objection to customs unknown to us? If there is a personal reaction to foreign scenarios, is hostility the result of intolerance or is it simply just the most readily available emotion to fill the void? If the latter is the case, how does this define the human species? Are we truly segregated by the environment and infrastructure which surrounds us, and if so, does this feed the organization of specific races and religions? History displays ample examples advocating and arguing details which bond and divide humans. In a generation fiercely compelled to abolish the categorization of humans, is it custom or colour that the individual must embrace in order to produce complete unity?
