Do you think America has a shallow culture?

Very much so. I think it plays a significant part in explaining why we treat each other so poorly.

Not really. There aren’t that many of us that are well off. Are there shallow Americans? Sure, but I don’t think it’s part of our culture.

No. There are many rich layers to our culture. Unfortunately, one of those recent layers s quite shallow.

I agree, I often hear people talk about the 'shallow American culture' and while I think modern aspects of our culture are very misguided, I disagree with the claim.

I think many use this an excuse to discredit calls to protect our culture or to encourage assimilation, etc. ... in other words, 'theres not much to protect','what is there to assimilate to' etc. I run into those arguments often 😒

No, I think it has a very diverse culture and there are definitely shallow people. However, I think the cultural diversity is deeply rooted in beliefs and life experiences that are very real. I wouldn't call that shallow, and I think when we do call it shallow, we are discounting others in harmful ways.

Even those who are shallow contribute to our social depth. That is a diplomatic observation.

Good point, I'll agree with that Hammer.

See how shallow we are.

LOL. We are not shallow, we are deep thinkers, luckily we all have a sense of humor or we'd never survive.
