Why can't people understand the idea of being proud of your culture, especially a White-European culture?

I was discussing here with some people who believe in "individualism" and they seem incapable of understanding the concept of cultural pride. They always feel the need to mix cultural pride with the idea of "appropriating yourself of other people's achievements", which is a total bullshit that in a sane society no one would pay attention to. And then they proceed in a very ludicrously SJW-ish way by accusing you of "individual achievements appropriation". It's funny, given how many of them call themselves "Right-Wingers" or "Independent moderates", yet they are no different than those blue haired feminists who inhabit safe spaces.

People should REJECT individualistic philosophies because it can not explain social phenomena that is not characterised by the logics of money and individual status in a materialistic/consumerist society, where people and culture are quantifiable, priceable, replaceable and everything is manageable like a private company.

Economicism doesn't define a people's ETHOS. When we say we are proud of being part of a culture, we are saying we values our Ethos: our identity as people, our common history, our language, our customs, our religions, our shared fate, our duty to preserve what we received from our forebears and to contonue their hard work to give a better future to our descendants.

It has nothing to do with "other people's achievements" (which only makes sense in individualistic societies where there is no cohesion and everyone is ignorant about the history of their own people). It has nothing to do with victimhood status either.

F*ck individualism.
