Abstract
The spirit of culture is the spirit of freedom. Culture begins with the germination of seeds of the spirit, growing in soil open to the elements, unrestricted, growing wild. Culture is at birth an individual plant reaching for the light, wishing to grow as tall as its strength will allow. In community the plants of culture grown from the seeds of individual spirits will either flourish as part of a flowering of common aspirations, or they will be stifled and choked by the aspirations of those who would dominate, as in a forest some plants are choked by the dominance of the taller trees. Culture
begins with spiritual freedom; its development depends upon the social environment within which it grows.
