  • Most Famous Attempt For Cultural Sovereignty
    762 words
    Cultural Sovereignty Cultural sovereignty sounds like a good idea, but like every good idea someone can find a way to make it bad. Many peoples have attempted to achieve cultural sovereignty, and yet to my knowledge it has not succeeded. There will always be someone out there that wants that piece of land, or believes that their ways are better. In this day and age it is my belief that cultural sovereignty is not plausible.
