Culture: A dirty word like religion and nation

The root of oppression lies not only in the economic structure but also in culture!
It’s the culture that conditions human mind much before it becomes capable enough to think.
Its the culture that plants the vague idea of good and bad in human intellect. 
Its the culture that teaches gender bias and gender roles.
Its the culture that teaches to limit one’s compassion to a certain group of people.
It’s the culture preaches man to be judgemental and whom to respect and whom to look down upon.
it’s the culture that infects human mind with religious fanaticism, nationalism, racism and a lot many isms.
And moreover it’s the culture that teaches humans to accept things as they are because they have been followed by a lot many people for a lot many years.
So yes culture is central to legitimization of oppression.
