Intermissions Institutions vs. Individual identity: All sets of ideas that gets a foothold in large parts of a population can bee seen as institutions. A fair assumtion is that all viable institutions serve a purpose and have meaning in the context in which they are established. At least they all have a cause. The nature of an institution is, however, to enclose some, and to exclude something or someone. No institution is perfect or complete. "The whole is delivered in parts". We can learn something -for better or for worse, from all institutions we encounter, weather we find ourselfs on the inside or not. But because we all have a finite capacity for insight -and despite the fact that we are all influenced or bound by some institutions - we all have our unique set of personal experiences, needs, properties and interests and therefore our unique interpretations and perseptions. Hence what we take from or contribute to the institutions, and cultures in general, must be individual. Maybe thats what constitutes our identity?
