Cultural Frameworks

Culture, like values evolve from experiences which drive beliefs rooted in those experiences.  These experiences and beliefs are the frameworks by which culture is shaped.  The challenge is that sometimes we make poor choices as to the experiences we allow ourselves to be part of.  When we participate in an environment we allow the dynamics of that situation to seep into our being which contributes to our beliefs of what is interpreted as being right or wrong.  If these experiences are not filtered through or viewed through lens of respect, responsibility, accountability etc. then the experiences which may at one time would have been considered wrong, becomes acceptable. This in turn, then evolves into being considered to be right.  Unfortunately when respect, accountability and responsibility are set aside for self gratification then the evolution of wrong to right accelerates placing culture at risk.
