Cultural appropriation, the borrowing of the mores, practices, culture, of one group by another, has come under heavy criticism in the modern era. The present paper is an attempt to right this balance by defending this practice. It is important that this be done since this is one of the important ways in which the human race can improve itself. What good will be the good of new innovations, inventions, if their benefits are confined to small areas? They will not be of widespread help if they cannot be more widely dispersed since that would constitute an unwarranted and unjustified cultural appropriation. The present paper is thus an attempt to improve the human condition by defending the transfer of improvements.
