The world will be more and more similar?

with the spread of the western culture, you will find that the special customs and habits in the other countries were disappearing in the world,which will be more terrible than the violent aggression. what do you think about that?

I don't know if you should blame it totally on western culture.. A lot of countries have been developing their own technological advancements (such as Japan) and it hasn't been because of a western influence. I would just like to hope that cultures can try to hold onto their customs for as long as possible while the world advances even further into the future. I don't necessarily blame it on any "western influence", though. But this could be because I'm from the US and naturally biased. . To answer your question (in case I haven't yet), it's sad when ANY culture loses it's traditions and way of life, but it's up to us individuals to hold onto it and teach our children about our old customs.

dear maezee, I like your answer to my question. but I don't think it's enough to teach our children about our customs with individual power but also the government.
