Traditional values.

Posted by: reece

Does having traditional values include being discriminatory/Prejudice against race, gender and beliefs or lack there of?

  • Yes, people that have a predisposition on how people should think/act/look will have a tendency to treat others inferior.

  • No, traditional values doesn't stand for that at all.

  • It depends on what your traditions are. American conservative traditional values, yes. In general I don't think the idea of placing importance on cultural tradition is that bad, its only bad when a value is just plain wrong and you refuse to progress.

  • You are over generalizing traditional values.

  • No, values are what keep families together. It's just human nature to be crappy to one another. I have been raised in a conservative Christian environment and being pro discrimination was never one of my family's values.

  • What 58 said.

  • It really depends, you're over-generalizing traditional values.

  • Nope, not at all. People with "traditional values" are actually the friendliest people you'd ever meet.

@58539672 Do you think having an idea of Traditional values comes with a predisposition of how to treat people?

Marxism definitely comes with a predisposition of how to treat people.
Haroush says2015-07-21T22:11:19.6979943-05:00
Traditionalism is about how you treat yourself, not others.

@Haroush 1. Yeah Marxism does. Traditionalism/Traditional value is about how you treat yourself, not others? Okay, this will be fun.
reece says2015-07-21T22:23:33.6448022-05:00
@Haroush How do you go about it? How do you maintain tradition by resisting change if it's about how you treat yourself?
Haroush says2015-07-21T22:37:09.8814971-05:00
IS it that tradition resist change or is it that change is intolerant towards tradition?
Haroush says2015-07-21T22:40:42.3586234-05:00
Tradition maintains it's self by retaining history, ideas, ceremonies, rituals, or whatever may pertain to the tradition in question.

I think most of the traditional values in my country (I'd say ~65-80%) are better than the new values that pop up because of the rise of Western individualism. I do know that the same can't be said of Western traditional values, which are based on religion, but you didn't explicitly say that in the description.
reece says2015-07-21T22:50:33.8942559-05:00
@Haroush Change is a certainty. Resisting change instead of being flexible is unhealthy. Traditions are determined to fade into history.
reece says2015-07-21T22:53:18.3370227-05:00
@Haroush Progress comes from innovation which involves change.
reece says2015-07-21T22:56:13.8381477-05:00
@Haroush But anyway. How does Traditionalism/Traditional values just include how you treat yourself, not others? Because we are a hierarchy after all.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin So it's true that eastern culture tends to be more collectivist and "right-brain" oriented as opposed to western culture?
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-07-22T04:47:22.1210016-05:00
@triangle: It's often said that traditional Chinese culture is collectivist, but I disagree with this. It rejects both the individual and the collective. (We can talk about this if you want.) I'm not sure what you mean by right brain though...

Hold up, what's with judge Judy?
reece says2015-07-22T16:13:28.7796886-05:00
I wanted to equate Traditional values with judging. I wanted one judge to have made up his/her mind and i wanted another that hasn't decided yet. I picked judge Judy because she fitted the latter.
Haroush says2015-07-22T20:36:15.2232402-05:00
Most of the change you talk about.. Especially when it comes to culture, comes from cultural Marxism.. I'm not sorry for not conforming to the ideas of cultural Marxism. What I believe is my choice. If you try to shove something down my throat, I will do the same in return. Ying Yang.

Do you see that flag on my user icon?
Haroush says2015-07-22T20:37:46.4159946-05:00
Do you know what that stands for?
