Culture is “the rational done in an irrational way”, “a golden cage” we have to escape from to find our freedom again… This video gives some food for thought!
I don't agree with the general message though. I think culture is the only way we have to (re)connect with our sources and to (co)create the future. But one remark does raise an important issue: can culture (i.e. myth, metaphor, narrative…) fulfil its role when it becomes transparent, when we get to see “what's under the hood”? From a theological perspective: is 'second naïveté' really possible? I think that's a huge challenge for theology, not for the sake of religion – in my case: Christianity – in itself, as in: ensuring its survival as a tradition, but for the sake of what religion could offer the world: a pathway to a better future than our past ever was.
