“What is this thing called ‘culture?’ – Does it mean you’d like to do something because you were conditioned to do it? That you’d like to feel something because you were conditioned to feel it? Isn’t that being mechanical? – Now, if you want to wear your culture the way you wear your clothes, that’s fine.”
