Hey guys! Okay, here are the rules:
- Reblog this to express interest
- Like to express interest
- 1 reblog and 1 like per person
- I would prefer it if you didn’t reblog this onto all your blogs, but I’m honestly not gonna comb through all the urls
- I will say though, that if my randomizer chooses someone, and their blog was obviously made for these sort of things, I will choose someone else.
- I will select three people and they can choose one book they want from the list under the cut below
- I will be adding more books to the list as I decide I don’t need them
- I will also prefer the winners to be one of my followers, BUT
- You do not have to follow me to win
- I will ship internationally.
- Once the giveaway winners are announced, I will post the rest of the list if any of you guys want to buy the books.
- You have until September 20th.
what do you call a sphere full of idiots

When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.
This statement irks me so much. Perhaps I take my perspective and understanding of culture is too simplistic at its core. But culture is meant to be shared. Literally the purpose of culture is to overcome a problem via a behavioural adjustment, and then to pass that behaviour on via sharing to those around you. Culture at its core is learnt behaviour, its an adaptive response to an environmental circumstance that we want to overcome, and it has become much more. It is necessary to transmit that learnt behaviour to others. Without sharing culture, humans have no way to pass their traditions onto the next generation, and therefore they don’t have a way to transmit their innovative solutions to problems to their descendants and companions.
How is it possible to transmit a tradition, custom, or behaviour generationally without sharing it?
Sure culture changes, and perhaps not all behaviours are adaptive at all times, but without sharing culture, and learning from other peoples ways of life, how can we learn about tolerance, diversity, and the different ways of existing and experiencing life?
Culture is meant to be shared, and if it is not shared, there is no point to it.
