In any society, if one wants to get respected, they need to be able to command respect. To command respect, one needs to respect oneself. Second, one needs to respect their roots, their culture and to be able to identify with it if not agree with it. Third, it is important that same respect is shown to others and their qualities are not just admired (admiration is but just idol worship) but imitated. We think some qualities are inimitable and thus, don't adopt them for fear of being labeled clones or on the other extreme we harrumph when someone is different.
