What culture has yet to undergo any/some form of change since its inception? Realities of change and changing eras tend to produce nostalgia and amnesia in living persons. Those who are around now often decry the status of things, believing that the age of yore is past. For example, it is highly likely that one white man is unhappy somewhere that slavery is over. But it is very true too that a black family which has served as supervisors of other black men (who were treated as slaves) is unhappy because slavery would be abolished. Such is the complex reality of life that one’s meat is another’s poison.
