The world, as the audience may know is made up of many countries each having its own culture, beliefs, practices etc. Surprisingly, many if not most of the cultures of today are heavily influenced by other cultures to a point that there is deliberate destruction of an ethnic group. An example of this would be the Westernization of cultures. Westernization has caused an massive impact on acculturation. Acculturation is proposed as a multidimensional process consisting of the confluence among heritage-cultural and receiving cultural practices, values, and identifications (Schwartz, Unger, Zamboanga, & Szapocznik, 2010). Writer, Paul Harrison, in his cause and effect essay evaluates how westernization is eradicating the cultural diversity of the world. Harrison's purpose is to examine certain tendencies shared by nations that are otherwise dissimilar. He adopts a distressing tone in order to open the eyes of the adolescent readers.

Paul Harrison points out "Young people don't like operas, they are too old fashioned". He goes on to quote a young man remark saying "We would prefer to see a high-quality Western variety show, something like that", this is the consequence of permissive parenting. Permissive Parenting is low on positive structure and direction. (When it comes to handling your hard-to-handle child, are you an authoritative, authoritarian or permissive parent?, 2000). The younger generation is being brought up by indulgent parents into a more modern world that is exposed to different cultures. Permissive Parenting does not grow the child with strict values; there is no direction to where the child is heading and therefore adapts to what he/she likes or what is trending. Parents are influential bearers and if there is no guidance the child will stray away to what he/she feels is familiar or

Over the years the civilizations of the world have adopted many of the West’s styles and ways of life.

Although the 1890s saw a reaction against the onslaught of Western influence, naturalists argued in favor of the best that was Japanese, but they did so in a thoroughly Western frame of reference and could identify little of exclusive value aside from the physical beauties of Japan, especially Mt. Fuji. Thus, Japan came to be under western influence.
Due in part to the western influence, Japan has received many effects, both good and bad. In the same way that various cultural influence has helped….
Westernization is a word that is gradually becoming synonymous with modernization.

The former concept revolves specifically around the spread of western ideas to other cultures influencing everything from morals to general practices. The latter, on the other hand, involves a rather rationalist and positive essence to it  in that it could be a change in ways that are….
