The basis of our culture is simply the cultures that were before us.

Yes, but you seem to be looking down on logic based on how it's been used (or, more precisely, haven't been used) in the world.

Logic has NOT been used to any significant degree in terms of structuring our society. We may have started out with logic when making our laws or structuring our society - but we haven't had the capacity to do it beyond the core concepts.

Personally, I think logic would make for a much, much better world society for everyone involved.

However, people tend to think in opposites and can't imagine a world that's both logical and emotional. Something I most certainly don't agree with.
