Thread Name: BS: Multicultural Competence
Subject: RE: BS: Multicultural Competence
I would like to believe that "Multicultural Competence" would also operate with the understanding that some cultures are abject failures and not worthy of any respect beyond the interpersonal kind that can and will occur in the day to day of life between individuals despite their cultural differences.

I would like to think that the value to a society or a community of any one of its subcultures would need to be defended in the open forum of ideas, as well as the day to day of polite intercourse in that society. And if any culture, philosophy, or religion proves itself detrimental to that society, I don't think respect is due it.

I would like to think that, but it is not so and will continue to not be so.
