  1. When I talk about cultural identity and pride I do not mean being proud of other people's achievements. I consider myself to be the continuation of a history and thus I want this part of history to be honourable. I want my father and grandfather to be proud me. I wish to study their teachings in order to find some truth in it. If we take for example the way of life or culture and the values that my great grandfather followed I am sure we can find a lot of truth in them. People of old were by no means stupid. They lived in harder situations and had experienced many things. I want to study my nation's history and culture to find out what worked and what didn't and thus probably predict where my country and where I am heading. Of course I am summarising as well.
  2. I believe I understand what you mean and I agree with you. Thank you for taking the time to write such a long post.
  3. I would like to start by saying forgive my ignorance. I did not come here to fight. I am asking this question because I am sincerely curious. I am Greek and I really like my culture. I like my traditions and I view myself as a 'continuation' of a history. I believe in moral values and I have a wish to make my family proud. I am not racist or a nationalist and I do not believe that Greeks are better than others. I simply find that the cultural identity of a person works against a post-modernist society and nihilism. Is that wrong? Is it wrong to like your country, your culture, your heritage and to believe in honor and pride?
