Quote of the week

This quote is from Herstory, by June Sochen:

In human history, people have made decisions they believed were inevitable and essential, though in fact they were cultural, value-laden, and debatable.

To me, this is along the same lines as the quote last week. Culture is a far stronger influence on us than we like to believe; to create meaningful change it is critical to gain perspective both on history and on one’s own culture.
