“No amount of emancipation can free one from one’s culture and heritage. Tradition, authority and prejudice are just words for pre- experience and pre-knowledge which becomes indeed the conditions of all the future experiences and knowledge. These words underline the essential historicity of man, the fact that he is born into and limited within a culture from which limits he can soar, though always in a limited way.
” The principle as I interpreted is conveying that, rituals are a form of power that enables people to practice these traditions through the course of their lives. Who makes these traditions and why must we adhere to them? No quantity of liberation can at no cost rescue or deliver an individual from customs. It’s a way of life for them and they have no choice; just because your culture lives by certain tradition, that does not make these acts just. Ritual, power and bigotry highlights the vital accounts of individuals born, contained by a society where the voice is spoken, but never quite heard. In conclusion, and I Quote, “True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.
” This quote, which was obtained through research, supports my stand on this issue. Love is not something that you just fall into. You may want to love someone but can’t verbatim you may not want to love someone but do. Marriage is something special, sacred and should be shared with the person you love and hold close to your heart. It is important that we acknowledge that cultural practices, do lead to oppression of women in this country. It is a complicated dilemma, but the plight of women that are forced to marry demands attention.
