As mass communication and transport continue to grow, societies are becoming more and more alike leading to a phenomenon known as globalization. Some people fear that globalization will inevitably lead to the total loss of cultural identity. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Globalisation is a trend in which people in different countries tend to have the same things as a result of mass production. Some people might consider this as a good thing since it helps businesses to expand and things to become more affordable to consumers. However, I believe there are many side effects that should be taken into account. Based on that, I’m going to prove globalisation can lead to the loss of cultural identity.
First of all, considering the aspect of entertainment, people are listening to the same music worldwide. Some could argue that as long as people love a song, there should be no objection. However, in some cases, young people listen to a song just because it is what their friends are doing. This is resulted from globalisation which brings foreign cultures, especially those from Western countries, to many Asian countries.
Secondly, you can see people are wearing the same clothes in many different places. The reason could be the affordable prices of the clothes or it might be a fashion. Hence, the traditional clothes are becoming obsolete and being ignored.
Finally, young people are behaving similarly. As I said, globalisation brings foreign cultures to many countries. Some are good but not all of them. If these behaviours are not monitored carefully, the next generation can be stimulated with bad behaviours.
In conclusion, I strongly believe globalisation could lead to the loss of cultural identity for three reasons. First, the same music is being listened to everywhere. Secondly, people are wearing the same clothes. Next, the behaviours of young people are becoming the same.
