Words Poorly Used #113 — Appropriation
Don’t we humans make a distinction between appropriation and misappropriation? In the sense of legislation, it means adding money to an enactment, sufficient to pay for the enactment or to establish a spending target. If these simple objectives are not met, then we are talking about a misappropriation. Using this logic how can there be such a thing as cultural “appropriation” as a negative? How can you redistribute culture from one group to another? How do you allocate culture?
