Stop showing off! We can learn from one another.

We will do well to refrain from denigrating the contribution of others, such as other civilisations and other cultures just because they are alien to what we are familiar with. Just because one’s civilisation and culture may have pre-dated others or have conquered others, it does not mean that automatically, everyone else after ought to be disregarded. There is much we can do to learn and share from each other. Rather than shutting off at will and thinking that others have nothing to contribute towards overall progress, open sharing of wisdom and knowledge for the common good will further enrich our societies. Especially so, in an ever increasingly connected global society. Let us not consider others inferior just from an impression or misjudgement. There is much to share and learn and in turn, remake a better version of ourselves compared to what we were before our encounter.
