Is enculturation is a good thing or a bad thing in terms of individuality and freedom of expression?
Ideally, shouldn't culture be something that helps an individual and a community grow? I agree that there are some cultures that have strict penalties for not adhering to social norms but in such situations, it is very important to voice your opinion or disagreement before it threatens your individuality. It shouldn't reach a point where it harms your own self. It is not as easy as it sounds. It is difficult to disagree with a rule that has been set through years. So I believe this practice should start from the smallest unit of a society- a family. Teach your children the right to independant thinking. Be their friends and guides and allow them to be themselves. This will make them feel responsible for their own actions. Your relationship with them will also be stronger since there will be a strong sense of trust. When they feel confident to share their opinions with you, they will be more free and open. That is the kind of environment we need to be creative and to grow, as an individual and as a society.
