So true.

Britain is just as bad or worse. I spent years feeling culturally 
impoverished, despite living in a country that has history on its 
history. There is something to be said for having a cultural connection 
to the land by birthright, which is something only Native Americans get 
over there. I believe culture is a product of people's reactions and 
relationship to their environment, so actually all culture is valid, 
even if it's only 30 years old, like rave culture. The exciting thing is 
that culture is a living thing that we are all inextricably part of, so 
it's next to impossible to attempt to get an outside perspective.

We need to stop looking to other cultures for salvation and realise that 
we are the people we've been waiting for ... and get on with it.

And you're right, this has nothing whatsoever to do with Linux Audio in 
French. ;)
