Cultural appropriation, you just canít be too careful : Comments

By Russell Grenning, published 19/7/2018

They are working hard on creating on three pieces of international law that would, if implemented, expand intellectual property regulations to protect things like indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines.

There is no reason why Westerners would want to appropriate any culture obviously inferior to their in.

So what!
Russell obviously enjoys skewering the inevitable almost unlimited foibles of those on the left/liberal/progressive end of the culture wars shouting match.
But really these foibles are quite harmless when you compare them to the toxic foibles promoted by the site introduced here:

Hopefully, apart from runner hardly anyone who visits this Online Opinion forum would in any way subscribe to the benighted even toxic nonsense promoted by the above site.

Dear Ttbn,

ęThere is no reason why Westerners would want to appropriate any culture obviously inferior to their in.Ľ

I understand, but what about those cultures that are superior to the Western, if not across the board then at least in some aspects?

Well Yuyutsu, I think this whole nonsense proves that there are no
cultures that are superior to ours.
This cultural nonsense has been rumbling away for sometime.
It is a typical lefty brain snap and if all those other cultures are
so fragile that they need this, then that proves my point.
When I see everyone that is not of western civilisation throwing out
their western suits, walking instead of using western invented cars,
throwing out their TV sets, and we throw out paper because the Chinese
invented it, the Maori start wearing grass skirts & stop playing Rugby
then I will take the whole as other than a great laugh and as sensible
as Islam.
Oh thats a good point, when will the Saudi government stop providing
government employees with Mercedes and Issue camels ? Ha Ha

Cultural appropriation is the next identity issue for the social justice warriors. Essentially, they want to prevent white people from using anything from any other culture.

For example, these Fwits wanted to ban non-Mexicans from wearing a sombrero. So far from trying to integrate cultures and people, they are trying to resurrect apartheid.
