Tuesdays With Morrie

Morrie believed, "You have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it. Create your own."

Discuss what this means.

How can one "counter the culture?"

Our culture teaches many things that do not make people feel good about themselves. Images in the media can harm one's self image, for example. However, when it is in our culture, we believe it to be true. This can lead to unhappiness with one's self, as Morrie says here. He is dying, yet he is happier than most other people are.
