Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Come on, culture is more than celebrating the defeat of others.

I consider the right of parents to pass their culture to their children one of the most important issue I can think off. Democracy, free speach, or the right to receive a solidaric treatment by the society e.g. are things I consider less important. You say, somebody might want to chose to be interested in Spanish culture, while born into an Irish family? When following your approach, there won't be a Spanish culture somebody can chose to be interested in.
