    I agree with cultures being an identity but as a restraint NO. As my old man always says no one can and should tell you how to live your life. Only you could decide such thing.

    Cultures was meant identify us and make us proud of what we are but unfortunately it has become a sort of punishment. Keeping people bound and helpless.

    We need to get back to being individuals with unique identities. Nothing should be dictated to us.

    The proliferation of fake news in our TVs has made the situation worse. Nothing is even believable anymore.

    The propaganda in the world has gotten too much. Never believe everything you are told.

    This quote rings very true. People nowadays live like mere sheep.

    I blame the media for the current state of things. There is a lot of misinformation going on lately.

    This is pretty much true. We rarely think for ourselves anymore, we have other people to decide it for us. It’s kind of sad that it has come to this. We should try very hard to get used to the idea that thinking and doing things differently is not something that is always bad.

    Very sad and very true. If we weren’t that scared of actually getting to know each other and become self confident, that could make a big difference.

    There are many factors that makes people feel that they are helpless, even when challenges that are easier are faced. Nice quote to be remembered.

    Well, can we attribute this to human nature because this is how I view this. people brining up culture to put others in helpless state.

    The rulers can truly influence how people think. We must think for ourselves and not follow what the society dictates us to do so.

    We should all learn to believe in ourself. Not to doubt anything from ourself.
