What is Cultureblend?

You may have never heard of it before but you will be seeing examples all around you. What is it? It’s Cultureblend. There are already elements of it in art and literature and as globalization continues to progress you will likely see more of it and it’s likely to spread beyond art and literature to other sectors of the global cultural & economic economy

Cultureblend was created sometime after the year 2,000 by author Mark Wilkins to explain a phenomenon he noticed occurring in some of his writing. When he was creating the short story “The Commitment: which can be currently found in his book  A Week’s Worth of Fiction 3, he noticed that he took elements from both African and Arabic cultures, mixed them with the concepts of male and female dominated societies and created the fictional nation of Dadastan which is where the story is set.

The story has elements that are familiar to different cultures but completely different from any of them. The fact that what was created is different from anything that existed before is what makes the story interesting and draws people in with the familiar elements used to attract them in the first place.

Wilkins coined the term Cultureblend to describe this phenomenon, of combining the elements of two or more cultures to create a totally new culture (which in this case is totally ficitious). He also believed that this cultureblend phenomenon was present in various commodity sectors besides literature, such as art, music, food and fashion. Wilkins looked at the culture of Aztlan as an exemplar.

Aztlan is a Cultureblend of ancient Aztec history and Mexican American Chicano culture. Aztlan refers to the desire to take back the lands of Northern Mexico taken by the U.S. after the Mexican American War. The belief behind Aztlan is that Chcanos have a primordial right to the lands and that it should be given back to set up an independent nation. This Cultureblend phenomenon is evidenced in both art and literature.
Aztlan is not an example of fusion. It doesn’t merely take Aztec history and Mexican American culture and fuse them together in a “this is part of our roots and we’re incorporating it into our current culture” kind of way. Instead, it takes an element from ancient Aztec culture (the historical place of Aztlan) and creates a place in Mexican American Chicano culture which expresses its desires. The Aztlan referred to in Chicano Art and Literature doesn’t actually exist outside of the Chicano culture and has helped create Chicano culture. It is, in fact, a hallmark of that culture which is itself a Cultureblend of Mexican American and indigenous cultures from within Mexico.
Early on, Wilkins encountered people confusing Cultureblend with Fusion, He got several people asking him why he created the term Cultureblend instead of just calling the phenomenon he noticed Fusion? To help answer these questions, Wilkins looked to dictionary definitions of the word Fusion.

Fusion, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is a merging of diverse, distinct, or separate elements into a unified whole. Cultureblend, according to the Urban Dictionary, is a style of creating art, literature, music, food or fashion that blends elements of two or more different cultures in a way that creates a new and different culture.
Wilkins further explained how Cultureblend differs from Fusion by using the following comparison. Fusion is like taking branches from an apple tree and grafting on branches of a pear tree. Doing so creates an Apple-Pear tree, that is, a tree which has both apples and pears growing on it. Cultureblend is like taking the genetic material from an apple and a pear and creating an entirely new fruit which has the outside of a pear but tastes like an apple. You might call a pearple.
While fusion creates a whole with elements of different things it merely merges them to create a hybrid of both of them. It doesn’t create something new and different from all of its elements. It doesn’t have to refer to culture. Cultureblend refers only to cultural elements. It creates something new and different out of the blending. It is the cultural element and the creating of something new and different from all of the elements that created it that makes Cultureblend different from Fusion.

Mr. Wilkins is still actively seeking examples of the Cultureblend phenominon especially in food and fasion. If you notice any elements of Cultureblend in food or fashion, feel free to write Mr. Wilkins at: markwilkinsauthor@gmail.com

The Potential for Peace

By The Prophet of Life

Despite all of the wars, terror and hatred in the world, something extraordinary happened. The leaders of two nations, hostile towards each other sat down and talked about ending hostilities. The two nations were not from The U.S. and Russia. They were not warring factions in Syria. They weren’t Middle East Nations, African Nations or South American nations. The two leaders were from North and South Korea.

The two men,  Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in  met in South Korea. Kim Jong Un is the first North  Korean leader to set foot in South Korea in over 60 years.  The two agreed to work towards officially ending the Korean War (which never actually ended, a truce was just signed in the 1950’s), by the end of 2018. The two further agreed to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

American officials will claim that Un wants to settle things because of the current U.S. Administration’s verbal rhetoric and war mongering tone along with amping up sanctions against North Korea.  China will claim the move is due to its exertion of pressure on Un. It could also be something that Un had planned all along. Perhaps he kept pushing North Korea’s nuclear program so he could come to the negotiating table in a position of strength.

Whatever the reasons, the potential for a real and lasting peace is present. The momentum for peace and possibility of prosperity are in full effect. The wonderful promise however, will not be realized unless actions accompany the words by all parties concerned. Let’s not allow the euphoria of the moment to cloud our vision or take our eyes off the prize. Peace is a goal worth attaining and where peace goes, prosperity follows. The devil is in the details and the minutia of written contracts but if the commitment for peace is truly there, if the dedication towards success truly exists, then the consistent effort needed to be sustained throughout the difficulties involved in hammering out an agreement will be maintained.

Make no mistake about it, the lofty ideal of peace and the joy that everyone will initially feel will fade into the daily grind of negotiations.  The negotiations process will be difficult. It will try the patience of both sides. It will cause a desire to return to the predictable safety of the past, no matter how ugly, to be extremely tempting. I urge both sides to stay the course. Try to work things out., compromise. Achieving a lasting peace will not be easy but nothing lasting ever comes easily. Your people are counting on you to be the leaders your predecessors were not. The world is counting on you to not falter in your pursuit of peace. Achieving peace is never easy but peace is worth it.

Why both sides should Declare Peace!
