Every Culture Has Dignity

HAVANA TIMES, Jan 2 — There are no canons that permit the prioritization of different cultures in our global society.

Each culture has its particular history. Today we should only base ourselves on the respect for differences, the respect for others.

There are no inferior or superior cultures. All respond to a group and to historical development.

We should keep in mind that any intolerance of difference is a sign of racism and discrimination.

The only reprehensible culture is that which aspires to renounce what is a universal human state to achieve its own motivations and needs.

Every person should be universal. To accomplish this, we must make ourselves original, more indigenous, more culturally specific.
