    The right of a culture to assert certain authority over property, rules of conduct, laws, and other matters affecting its members.

    Until recent times cultural sovereignty was tied closely to territory, but with the mixing of cultures in modern nation-states it is difficult to assert special rights for each group, and individuals are increasingly choosing to associate themselves with multiple cultures and subcultures in a cafeteria-style "take what you want and leave the rest" manner.

    In other words, cultural sovereignty is likely becoming extinct.

    the only people that care if someone doesn't want to follow the law are the people who make the laws. because usually those people want to control the people that they are supposed to have jurisdiction over for whatever reason. i don't really think that it is a culture thing.. i don't think the culture makes a difference. the only thing that culture would probably have to do with it is the way that they would handle someone who would want to be sovereign. some people's ideas aren't as primal as others.
