Culture: Good or Bad?

Culture informs who we are and how we think, but should we embrace our culture or reject it? Is culture good or bad?

The word culture got me to thinking about bacteria - they grow in a group called a culture. If you don't have a good bacteria culture in your gut, you'll get sick. But if you have too much bacteria, you'll get sick. If you have the wrong kind of bacteria, you'll get sick. If you don't have enough of the right kind of bacteria, guess what . . . you'll get sick.

I think that the culture in which we live is similar in that there is good and bad culture out there. We can choose which we will engage. There is also a need for us to limit our engagement to culture. If we over-engage in culture it's just as bad as if we under-engage in culture.
