I think conservative cultures are less likely to progress as fast as other cultures, as their beliefs prevent them from trying new things and discovering new ways. A lot of cultures won't accept new medical research, or technologies, and yes I do beleive that this causes their society to become stilted and fall behind. What are your views?
