Lets play a game. It's called Cultural Diversity. This is something I was introduced to in this morning's anthropology course. It was fun in an odd
sort of way.
There are just a couple ground rules. Your answers cannot be based on biologics. That is, physical requirement or need to sustain life and/or mental
health. (Food or Companionship in general terms doesn't work). Answers can be anything that is within discretion of human beings and not a forced need
So what are we looking at? Well this is so simple, many will jump up to answer....before realizing it isn't simple.
Name one universal cultral value or standard. That's it. That's all you have to do.
Just one is what is needed, although more are welcome for tries. One would be good though. Universal means every culture, in general, agrees with it
as a standard and/or value. (Let's say you cite the eating of Chocolate. Okay, There can be no culture who opposes or has opposed it. All must
acknowledge it, for that to be universal. Obviously that wouldn't work as some haven't even heard of it.)
Now I'm at a bit of an advantage in that I saw how this plays out and what the ultimate answer is. Others here have played this out too, at some
point, and if so, please don't ruin the ending. It's one of those I would never have believed...had it not come this way to see.
Good Luck to all who choose to try. Remember.. just one value that all cultures universally share.
