In the 17th century, Rene Descartes said that if one travels enough, one will become a foreigner in one’s own land. This feeling, the feeling whereby the familiar becomes strange, and the strange becomes familiar, is part of Descartes’ famous doubting process. This doubting process then became what was part of the basis of the Enlightenment,a period of profound optimism that allowed people to rationalize their own existence apart from their own being or essence. Ironically it is this same doubt, inverted in a new and unfathomable way which is now working through the minds and hearts of the much later, and cynical Generation X—my generation. This is doubting, that works to create a profound sense of rationalizing a disillusionment towards one’s own culture, and even within oneself, despite the fact that one still intimately maintains and loves and participates within the very essence of that culture.Allow me to illuminate my observation.
