Philip Kai Morre - "Culture is meant for change and we are in a global village adapting to new ways of doing things"


KUNDIAWA - As a son of a Stone Age man, and having experienced the beauty of cultural heritage, I tried to hold back in my naturalistic fallacy of retaining good cultural values, norms and a belief system in the traditional mode. But conditions did not, and do not, allow.

So I go with the current cultural, economic, political and ideological changes and embrace modern science and technology.

I’m thinking that some like-minded people like Gideon Endo could come together and form a colony, going back to the old ways of living and doing things without problems at all.

But culture is meant for change and we are in a global village adapting to new ways of doing things.

We've got to accept the fact that we live in a new era competing in international politics, economics, education, ways of doing things and much more.

So we need to ensure that human rights, dignity, ethics, morality, justice and equality complement the changes in and the development of this nation.

Living in a money-based society, it is easy to develop frustration and anger when we see things don't go right for us.

Capitalist monopoly creates greed and corruption and our government supports the transnational companies in their efforts to rape and steal our resources to maintain their own living standards while we run dry and feeling hopeless in own country.
