A LUCID Insight

Abstract

I have never been a great believer in culture. Growing up in Denmark, I saw the division in human relations that 'culture' creates. Invited by the Danish Government in the late 1960s because of a shortage in the workforce, many Turkish immigrants went in search for a better life in Denmark. And with them came different customs and beliefs. I remember how Turkish children where teased for being different. I saw how Turkish immigrants scorned Danish society for lacking family values and religious beliefs. To me, 'culture' has always meant conflict, tension, unrest.
