Would a single global culture result in a better world?

  • Why can't we all just get along?

    People need to get to understand people from other parts of the world. I don't understand why people wouldn't want to know more about the other parts of the world. Instead of sending scientists all around the world, we could just ask the people around us. This is for our own good. We need to get to know more about the world around us because it is where we get some of our food, clothing, supplies, etc.

  • Global 'awareness' and unity is the only way for humans to progress

    We are no longer divided; as our cultures intertwine and interact with each other due to globalization, we will learn to understand each other. This would eventually lead to cooperation between nations, our borders will become less obvious and nationalities become transparent. This would allow us to set aside our differences and work together on this single common goal of humanity. Imagine 7 billion people pushing towards one goal! It would be a sight to behold, and this is a very true possibility. We might not be there yet, but I believe we are on the road to this future, for our views of each other are vastly different than our views before the 21st century. The days of when people warred against each other due to differences in culture are long gone, I believe that a single global culture will catapult us to the future of which we all dream of, a future of understanding and peace, a future of advancement and prosperity.

  • A global culture: a global benefit

    What you all must realize is that a global culture would have many benefits. For instance, global trade would become much easier to have. It would be much easier to have diplomacy, because everybody would be friends. Furthermore, it is abundantly clear that if we were to have a global culture we would have no issues with global thermonuclear war, which is inevitably always going to be a possibility otherwise. Arguments mentioning a lack of diversity ignore the fact that no society is entirely autonomous; there is diversity and individuality regardless of culture.
    A global culture would ultimately benefit every person in the world, and it would secure the prosperity of mankind forever.

  • A single global culture would make things more uniform and cause less disagreement.

    Many of the wars that have been spawned throughout history have arisen over cultural differences where, due to a particular disagreement, one side tried to wipe out the other. For example, in American history, slavery was one of the major disagreements and driving factors that led us to war; if we had a common culture with a common belief system, these types of wars would be avoided.

  • Unity and A LOT SIMPLER WORLD

    quote: "I believe a single global culture would benefit the world in a lot of different ways, especially regarding trade, currency, environment and laws.

    First of all, for the global warming situation, it would be beneficial to have one world law where all countries have to obey the same law regarding global warming. Also, one law could govern importing and exporting. It would be great. We would no longer be having one country that is paid 10 cents to make a product, and another paying $5. This would eliminate a lot of the poverty in the world if everyone was paid well for their services, and the big companies are not taking all the profits of their work."

    I AGREE

  • I think a single culture would bring an end to the many differences existing in the different cultures in the world.

    A single global culture would result in a better world. In a country where there are different cultures followed in its different states, the people of different cultures would find it difficult to agree on divisive issues (however broadminded they may be). It's simply human nature. We all like to be in the midst of the like minded people, so a single global culture would be a blessing for the mankind.

  • Yes, a single global culture would definitely result in a better world as it will bring about unity and brotherhood among the people of the world.

    Conflicts and disputes in the society rising in the name of religion would tremendously decrease. In fact a sense of humanity among the people of the world will increase which will lead to a rise in development and will ultimately make the world a better place to live.

  • What is "better"?

    The idea of a global anything is oppressive and wrong. Depriving people of their identities and history has already been tried in the name of building a better world. It never works. If you want a better world fill this one with better individuals.

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOO No No

    Please God no because there will be no more 'Murica. 'Murica! The World needs 'Murica. Mmmkay? Without 'Murica, hoes be trouncin' around internationally all like. Also then there'd be no more 'Murica. Comin' again to save the mofo day. Make 'Murica Great Again! 'Murica! 'Murica! 'Murica! 'Murica! 'Murica! 'Murica! 'Murica!

  • We need to feel independent.

    Think of all the small cultures that would be wiped out what if your culture was just just pushed aside would you like that what if we just got rid of christians muslims and jews would you like that so can we at least feel independent just give us that.

  • It will never nworks.

    Some cultures are totally in contrast with the others, such as clothing ( based on climate ), food culture, and above all these, religion. Global culture simply can be the main reason for 3th world war because of religion problems. A muslim person can not change his/her religion, otherwise the other muslims will kill him/her, and it is acceptable for muslims to kill the other religion members. There are about 600 religion and god in our planet now, so imagine the problems that create just by religion.

  • We're all way to different

    People have to realize that we are all different and live in different places and not all countries are as developed as others but if there were we still wouldn't be able too there are too many different beliefs and different climates also it's really unique that there are different cultures. A one world culture would be a world I wouldn't want to live in because sometimes we need to be deprecate I mean there is a reason why we are all different and there must be a reason why every culture is different but I don't think we would be able to be able to accept all the differences . Not only alone it would be wickedly hard to pick one language the rate we should be learning in schools what religion we will practice the currency that we would have to use. Sorry its way to hard if we decided to have one there would be so much conflicts sorry but the way it is is perfect. The key word here though is different !

  • A global culture would ruin the world.

    Small, traditional, local cultures would be eroded. The tourism industry would practically be ruined; you go on holiday to experience a new culture, live in way that other people live, see things that are new to you; this would no longer be possible if there was one single culture.
    If there was to be one global culture the whole world would be Americanised. We'd all have to play American sports, follow the American school system etc. There would be nothing to identify a country by. Small businesses would be lost, the world would be ruled by huge TNCs that exploit people in nations that are still developing. The world would become even more obsessed with money.

  • No Single Culture Can't

    No because all the cultures have their own respective identities. You can't apply one culture on the whole world as cultures variate from region to region and climate to climate. Obviously you can't wear a thick parachute jacket in Lahore in the month of June. Even if its December or January, you will definitely be wearing some warm stuff but still won't prefer a parachute jacket. Whereas if you will travel to K2 in winters, definitely you need parachute jackets and thick trousers and caps. This is just one random example. Punjabis, Sindhis, Balochis, Pathanis, Saraikis and Kashmiris here in Pakistan have a variation of cultures and all of them are loved to make the nation united. Overall culture is a class sub divided into further classes. Main culture of Pakistan is Islamic that unites us all and other cultures are according to Islamic teachings (mostly). Similarly if you start moving from Pakistan and reach India, Afghanistan, China, UAE, UK, USA, you will find culture variations. So imposing one culture over others forcefully is something that kills humans and its the most hated act according to a peace loving society.

  • I disagree, because culture is a tradition, and is private to a particular part of people from a particular part of the globe.

    In my opinion, culture is a private and rich possession for any sect of people. Culture is natural and varied, just as we have hills, mountains, oceans and varied weather conditions on earth. Culture shows a person's origin and he should be encouraged to follow it, and display it without thrusting it on others. Encouraging mutual respect, acceptance, and love in people's minds, and offering equal opportunity for everyone can bring about better world. Who doesn't like life with changes and varieties? So, varied cultures, with a direction towards equality and humanity, can only result in a better world.
