Is having "culture" and being culturally knowledgeable and refined a good thing? How does it benefit a person? How is it useful?
Is a lack of culture a good reason to look down on a person?
Example: A modern U.S. citizen doesn't know what Mt. Olympus is, or the legends associated with it. Most people who are "better cultured" are aware of those things, and some look down on this person. But would knowing it really benefit this person?
