Yes! This! I think we tend to romanticize the old and “traditional” and construe those as the “authentic” heart of a culture. But culture evolves, just as individuals do. A 10-year-old self is no more or less authentic than a 90-year-old one. There are just different phases that we pass through, individually and collectively, and it’s all valuable, real, and worthy of appreciation.
