Topic : Globalization and culture loss

As mass communication and transport continue to grow, societies are becoming more and more alike leading to a phenomenon known as globalization. Globalization has brought people a lot of economic and material benefits . However, Some people fear that globalization will certainly lead to the total loss of cultural identity, it also can contain in itself potential destructive abilities to alter traditional cultures and corrupt young people’s morals in some way.

To begin with, the first supportive factor for the above opinion is that the Vietnamese’s tastes for fashion, music, hairstyle and so on, have been influenced a lot from the other countries through the process called globalization. More specifically, the traditional costumes, like “ao dai”, have been intolerably stylizing by the young girls who crave becoming modern, remarkable and exclusive through the way they dress. Meanwhile, the foreigners’ desire is to wear the real “ao dai” with features as much as possible. That is so unreasonable.

Another point worth mentioning is that the good lifestyle associated with the orient traditions & spiritual values, along with the outward forms, has gradually changed, and some of them - disappeared, especially in the young generation. It can be note-worthy that teenagers have become more open-minded about sexual issue without any restriction. This real situation may lead to the corruption of young people because no one knows whether they have any erroneousness when absorbing sexual knowledge. The reality has shown that more Vietnamese teenagers tend to show up themselves by posting their own naked pictures or clips on public. That is horrible in my view.

Contrary to this view, some people think that not all new cultural identity introduced into Vietnam is bad. However, what they fail to consider is that those who experience these new cultures most quickly are mainly teenagers who have no full awareness of what they should do or should not do. In addition, it is so easy for them to be attracted by surrounding trends, irrespective of bad things or good things, due to the loose of parents’ control. Meanwhile, the access to traditional cultural seems more difficult because of the generation gaps in the any family.

In brief, the matter mentioned in the topic has pointed out two main directions. As for me, the discussion above has revealed that along with some benefits, globalization has also brought the risk in traditional cultures.
