Would need to read the opening quote in context to be certain, but it sure sounds like a (possibly deliberate) misreading thereof. Further, it is expressed in an overly pompous and unpleasant manner, which also increases the temptation to call it bullshit, but when stripped of that and even ignoring my suspicions of misreading, I think the point it makes is a serious one that can't be written off out of hand. So I'll say that it's not bullshit in bullshit's trappings.

I think it is a serious claim too but a troubling one.

First of all there is the problem of what we were talking about with ignatz wrt the difference between what is natural and what is human, if we can even make such a distinction. This thing seems to presuppose a similar distinction between culture and nature. This may be bullshit.

Further, it claims that culture keeps us in bondage, and that apparently authentic enjoyment can only occur after we break out of this bondage or are at least aware of what originates or constitutes this cultural bondage. This may be be bullshit.

Here I am using the word bullshit in a slightly different sense than you but I welcome your use of the word as well.

whether its bullshit or not (idk), its about 100% opposite of my worldview. but that's probably obvious.
