Is culture no longer important in the modern world?

  • Yes, but also no

    In the modern world, two people living in the same section of a city may belong to different cultures, even presuming that they both grew up to similar backgrounds. In the modern, globalizing world the idea of "culture" is shifting. A culture can no longer be defined "these people live here so they are of this culture", as the shared experiences no longer exist. In this society people from the United States may communicate in a meaningful fashion with those from very different cultures, or even adopt traits, traditions, manners and habits from other cultures which they see on television, online or in other places. If an American spends more time speaking to friends they have in Japan, watches nothing other than anime, acts humble, self defacing, selfless and polite, and eats primarily Japanese food, can their culture be called American? In modern society in an apartment building filled with white people, one may find hundreds of modern "cultures"; otaku, hard core strategy gamers, RPG players, etc., each with their own traditions, customs and values. Geographic culture is a thing of the past in the globalizing world, and is steadily being replaced by cultures based on personal interests.

  • Globalization and Mulitculturalism

    Culture seems to be getting weaker and weaker in today's modern world, and this is down to globalization. Large and major influential countries like Britain and America are both multicultural countries. Meaning that the two most influential countries in the world, don't have a strong culture, unlike hundreds of years ago, they have a mix.
    Also, globalization has a massive impact on culture. For example, coca-cola, Pepsi, Levi's, McDonalds and American TV (just to name a few) you can find even in the poorest of countries like India, so it seems to be becoming a one world culture.
    There isn't a strong sense of culture anymore, globally.

  • Culture Hasn't Lost its Hold

    Culture is still important, even in the modern world. The effects may be less visible than 100 years ago, as people are interested in fitting in. Culture, however, is still evident in music, dance, dress, and in family activities and traditions. Don't forget your past, or you will be no more unique than your neighbor.

  • So important for these reasons

    It's important because it makes who we are so its important because even in the modern days when we our still ourselves makes it important IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS

  • No culture is still important in the modern world

    Culture is important in all time without it we are like car without mirrors in culture is were we find ourselves, were do we come from and to understand where we are in the present. Everything that changed our past world to modern world only changed our ways of living not our physical being we still copies of the past. The inner person still in the past.

    Lets look at the values of our culture and see what kind of life style we find or what is the way of living we find for example.
    In some communities the is time of gathering and sharing celebrating some of our customary values as a community or nationality that promote loving and build unity. In short let me put this example from zulu nation (umhlanga) is the cultural ceremony for young girls who are still virgins, the whole nation gathered together coming in all directions to celebrate it so what we benefit as the nation or community is.
    1. Networking
    2. Prevent early sexual participation
    3. Show the importance of being a virgin.
    While in the modern world is one man for himself (bhekindaba zakho)
    most culture teach us about moral and modern world give us no different between moral and immoral.
    In modern world you earn respect from what you have but in cultural world you earn respect from you age as we believe that your age determine how wise you are
